What is the future trend of the PCBA manufacturing industry?


What is the difference between PCBA vs PCB? What is the future of PCBA? Let's take a look at the future trends of the industry.

The Chinese name of PCB is printed circuit board, or PCB for short. PCB is an indispensable part of the electronic industry. PCB has been used in every kind of electronic equipment, such as small calculators, electronic watches, large computer communication and electronic devices, military weapon systems, as long as there are electronic components such as integrated circuits, in order to interconnect them, PCB circuit boards are used.

In the larger electronic product research process, the most basic success factors are the design, file preparation and manufacture of PCB printed boards for this product. The design and manufacturing quality of PCB printed boards directly affects the quality and cost of the entire product, and even leads to the success or failure of commercial competition. PCBA:PCBA=Printed Circuit Board Assembly, which means that an empty PCB board passes through SMT and then through a DIP plug-in board, called PCBA. The PCBA with its components attached can be completed by simply assembling the shell and debugging the program.

Since 2009, more and more electronics manufacturers, in order to avoid the trouble of contacting SMT patch manufacturers after purchasing PCB, usually make two choices: let PCB board manufacturers produce SMT patch at the same time as PCB circuit boards, or let SMT patch manufacturers replace purchasing PCB. In both modes, PCBA purchased by electronics manufacturers can be assembled and used directly to produce finished products.

In general, electronics manufacturers will choose the one-stop PCB patch processing factory with the ability to process PCBs, or SMT patch factory to purchase PCB circuit boards on behalf of SMT patch factory. It is very simple for SMT patch manufacturer to purchase PCB circuit boards, just let the customer provide the production drawings and production process. Moreover, PCB market prices are becoming more transparent and easy to purchase. PCB board manufacturers are not familiar with the products and prices of various components. It is difficult to contact the patch processing plant for patch production, and we can only focus on the production of PCB circuit boards, losing customers who need simultaneous processing.


Since 2010, PCB board manufacturers have gradually expanded their factories and increased the generation processing line of PCBA while producing PCB circuit boards. This one-step approach has been recognized by many electronics manufacturers. Of course, this has both advantages and disadvantages. Substitute chip processor manufacturers have more profit margins, but at the same time, the risk is also increasing. Mainly because to purchase components for customers, each electronic product needs different components, even if the same product, the design drawings are different, and the components used are different. If the type of component purchased is wrong, the plates and components will be scrapped at the same time. It is also difficult to estimate the direct economic losses. The increase in human and material resources is inevitable. Under the pressure of market competition, the simultaneous processing of PCB and PCBA is also inevitable.

IPCB is a one-stop service dedicated to providing PCBA such as component purchase, SMT patches, dip, assembly testing, etc. A flexible production system with samples, small and medium-sized batches and multiple batches has been established, which has the advantages of fast quotation, fast production and fast delivery. Is the most distinctive e-R&D and hardware innovation service provider.

IPCB selected many well-known companies as excellent suppliers of the year, serving more than 50 countries worldwide with over 1000 customers from smart hardware, communications, industrial control, medical, defense, power, automotive and computer fields.

IPCB introduced 9 customized SMT production lines from Japan and 2 DIP post-weld, assembly and test complete flow lines. And AOI, ICT, SPI, functional testing, electron microscopy, high and low temperature box and other professional testing equipment. The company passed the system certification of ISO 9001 2015, for the quality of millimeters.

Innovating electronic manufacturing characteristic services and providing more valuable technical services and manufacturing solutions are the direction of IPCB company. Looking forward to the future, we will continue to provide customers with better PCBA one-stop service.
