A leading UK manufacturer and supplier in Prototype Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs).
Making a prototype PCB is your chance to see the first functional version of your design.
Before going to volume or batch production, this is your chance to iron out any design kinks, improve the allocation of materials and impress stakeholders or investors with an interest in your project.
The team at Hi5 Electronics have decades of experience turning ideas and PCB designs into fully functional prototypes. We’d love to do the same for yours.
Take control over circuit printing
Letting an expert handle the production of your printed circuit board prototype doesn’t mean giving up control.
Once you are comfortable with your PCB Prototype you might be tempted to source volume production for your PCB services.
A pre-production batch can be the most important stage of the product development cycle. Failure to spot any production mistakes at this stage could cost you big if a design goes to be volume produced.
There are lots of problems associated with large-scale PCB manufacturing which need to be ironed out in a batch production phase.
Buying circuit boards from an offshore source is a skill-rich exercise. True, anyone can stick a pin in their e-mail in-box and come up with a low cost supplier, but experience will tell you that this generally does not give the best value PCB in use.
Our mission is to provide the professional materials manager with the best value experience in the round.
All our offshore suppliers are on-site audited, regularly visited and benchmarked. We’ve worked with most of them for years, and understand their realistic capabilities.
Making a printed circuit brings together chemistry, engineering, photography and IT in a series of processes to turn design into reality, as the basic building block of almost anything electronic.
It requires skill, experience and investment to produce a bespoke design very quickly and to an exemplary quality standard; only then can the project, be it a new product or mass production, be allowed to proceed.
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) fabrication is the assembly method for circuit boards used in electronic and computer devices. The layers of the board are put together along with the specific surface pattern so it can be used in electronics manufacturing. Often firms that fabricate PCBs also make related products for their customers. Manufacturers of electronic goods can either fabricate in-house or contract this operation out to third party specialists. So many companies operate in this grey area and Hi5 Electronics can assist with a broader range of services if required.
