Electronic manufacturing services are designed for the manufacture, assembly, manufacture and testing of electronic components and fittings for the original manufacturers.
Original equipment manufacturers, commonly referred to as OEM services, retain the ownership of such product designs and brand names. Electronic manufacturing services sometimes become contractual electronic manufacturers and specialize in prototypes and product testing.
Electronic manufacturing services offer large, small or medium production lines. Materials can be made from shipments, materials owned by the suppliers or supplied by the customer.
Some electronic manufacturing services offer design services such as conceptual consulting for product development, software and mechanical and electrical design assistance.
Many other electronic manufacturing services have testing capability and regulatory compliance in the circuit, environmental, functional, analytical and agency activities.
Various manufacturing processes and technologies are used. Some of them include printed circuit boards, attached installed disks, or assembly services in larger fittings. Other products include flexible printed circuit boards, rigid plates and rigid and flexible circuit boards.
Some providers specialize in optoelectronics. Assemble devices that function as optical or optical converters. Suitable for light-emitting diodes, laser diode injectors and photodiodes.
Electronic manufacturing services include assembly of parts. Electronic Manufacturing Services employ two basic technologies with hole technology (THT) and surface structure (SMT).
In THT, the components are mounted on a PCB by inserting the component guides into the holes of the plate. They then solder the wires to the other side of the board.
In SMT, the components are connected to the PCB by heating cables or component connectors to the top surface of the board.
