ENGINEERING SERVICES

Overview:

Engineering

Key Electronics offers an extensive array of electrical and electromechanical engineering design services through our strategic alliances and partners. These services can include schematic capture, board layout, Design for Test (DFT), compliance testing and final packaging.

Key Electronics also uses industry-preferred software tools for sharing data and files with customers and/or strategic alliances and partners. These tools include SolidWorks, AutoCAD, CAM350 and others.

Design for Manufacturability (DFM):
Key Electronics provides Design for Manufacturability (DFM) as a value-added service for its customers. This service includes a review of the component technology, component placement options, PCB arrays, processing options and bill of material (BOM) choices. A comprehensive Design for Manufacturability (DFM) Report is provided which includes Process Flow Diagram, Rapid Response Lessons Learned and final DFM recommendations.

Design for Test (DFT):
Our test engineers have the experience and expertise to design and manufacture your test fixtures to meet your specifications. Our staff can help determine the best test solution for your product, including design for testability (DFT) consultation.

Process Control and Traceability:
Process Control systems provide automation to ensure product has successfully completed each process in the order as agreed to by Engineering and the customer. These systems can validate the various setups, provide operator and date/time processing data, and validate the correct equipment/tools and components are used for serialized PCBA’s and product assemblies.

Component Traceability:
The electronics manufacturing industry is experiencing increased demands for material traceability. Competitive pressures for improving product quality, while also reducing cost, dictate a high level of visibility and control over the assembly process and materials used. Traceability requirements, once limited to high reliability applications, such as transportation, aerospace, defense and medical, are becoming a necessity in other sectors.

Key Electronics has implemented factory-wide solutions using RFID, 2D Bar Codes, Product Flow Controllers, etc. that provides for material traceability to the reference designator level for serialized PCBA’s.
