Prototyping Icon

Over the years, our customers have come to rely on the quality, expertise, and personalized service that they receive when we manufacture their PCBAs here at Valley Services Electronics. Our assembly processes incorporate the latest industry standards and technology, and our years of experience instill trust and confidence in our customers.

There are many design innovators, like you, who are looking for that same level of manufacturing quality and trust for their NPI prototype builds—just completed faster. At VSE, this is exactly what our prototyping service provides.

VSE’s Quality Engineering & Manufacturing Services for Your NPI Prototypes

We bring the same manufacturing expertise to our prototype builds as we do with our production assemblies. Your prototype will go through a rapid manufacturing process, while receiving the same level of care and attention to detail that all of our PCBAs get. What sets our prototyping service apart is how it is fast-tracked. Each prototype project will get assigned to a dedicated specialist who will walk the product through every step in the manufacturing process, from engineering and design input to the final deliverable.

Does your prototype build need additional design work? Our engineers are standing by to deliver real-time support in order to get your prototype completed. Understanding how important your new products are, we welcome your engineers and designers to come and collaborate with us in person at our Silicon Valley facility. From consulting to complete redesigns, our engineers have the expertise to get your build done when you need it. Whatever your project needs are, our entire prototyping team is ready to deliver the highest quality quick-turn PCBA.

Our Prototype Manufacturing Process

VSE’s Rapid PCBA Manufacturing Process for Your Quick-Turn Prototypes

What sets our prototyping service apart is how we fast-track your project through our manufacturing process so you can get your board back within days, while still maintaining all certified quality processes.

Engineering DFM Review

Our engineering team works with you during the review process so that any potential manufacturing issues can be resolved immediately. Typical DFM review will identify end-of-life (EOL) components, layout enhancements, opportunities to maximize manufacturing efficiencies, and potential test strategies.

MRP & Kit Prep

Our materials requirement planning team goes to work in tandem with the engineering review. Our NPI coordinator starts purchasing materials immediately, and works with our component engineers on solutions to mitigate any parts issues that may impact your prototype build. Our engineers partner with you on any design changes that are needed in order to accommodate new components.

Board Fabrication

Bare board fab (Gerber) files are immediately reviewed by VSE to get the quickest start on board fabrication. After approval, they’re sent directly to one of our local PCB fabrication partners. We partner with multiple quick-turn PCB vendors who meet our stringent standards for quality and reliability—as well as our timeline.

Assembly & Test

On our manufacturing floor, the dedicated prototype specialist assigned to your project walks your board through each step of the PCB assembly. From there, the specialist will continue the fast-track process, guiding your board through inspection and testing.

Completed Product Delivery

With our rapid NPI process, your conceptualized assembly is quickly completed and ready for delivery—in most cases, your product will be hand-delivered by your dedicated NPI specialist. We will provide a documentation package that includes all applicable notes, ECOs, as-built drawings, test certifications and results, and any other relevant documents.

VSE’s Quality PCB Design & Assembly Provides Completed Prototype Boards in as Little as Three Days

With the same level of expertise and attention to detail that goes into all of our manufacturing, we at VSE are ready to handle your prototype builds. You need a CM that is committed to excellence, and we have a proven track record of providing that excellence to all of our customers.

Over the past 35-plus years, we’ve partnered with different companies from a variety of industries, including medical equipment and biotechnologies, automotive, test & measurement, and semiconductor. We’ve helped many companies like yours rapidly develop and build their innovative prototypes so that they can get their products tested and ready for production as soon as possible.

So when you need a quick prototype for testing, proof of concept, or sales demonstrations, turn to VSE. Let us partner with you to turn your innovative ideas into the functional products that you designed them to be.
