We’re happy to answer your manufacturing-related questions (examples: “How do I avoid designing-in a component that will be discontinued during the life of my product”? or “How close to the edge of the bare board can I locate components?”) Click here to read more about our value-added services…

RFQ FAQ

In the real world, most EMS providers don’t get a complete and comprehensive RFQ package very often, which is unfortunate because a complete package results in maximum reduction of manufacturing and component sourcing uncertainty (i.e., risk) and therefore the best price from the provider.

Following is a list of documents and files that enable us to most accurately estimate and quote your requirements:

  • Assembly Drawings
