PCB Assembly (PCBA)
Electronics are an integral part of our daily lives. Everything from our smartphones to our cars includes electronic components. At the heart of these electronics is the printed circuit board, also known as a PCB.
What is PCB Assembly?
A circuit board is a small chip which is covered in lines and copper parts. They are made with fibreglass, copper lines and other metal parts and these boards are held together with epoxy and insulated with a solder mask.
The process of assembling a board is where small components are added; An advanced circuit board won’t be able to give its functionality until components are mounted on it.
The copper lines on bare board, called traces, electrically link connectors and components to each other. They run signals between these features, allowing the circuit board to function in a specifically designed way. These functions range from the simple to the complex, and yet the size of PCBs can be smaller than a thumbnail.

"Tactiq have been using Quadra for twenty years. We have found the team at Quadra skillful and very responsive in meeting our PCB design needs. We recommend Quadra as our preferred supplier."Alan Johnson Tactiq
Certified Quality Standards
Quality cannot be sacrificed when manufacturing your Printed Circuit Boards. That's why when you choose Quadra, you choose quality. We have helped assemble hundreds of boards and have over 20 years' experience in the industry!
Save Time & Money
We are able to assist you in the process from the design stages right through to assembly and manufacture. Allowing us to look after your designs means you ensure you don’t have to do costly re-runs of any errors which may occur. We can assist in all elements from sourcing parts to manufacture and assembly. We have IPC CID+ designers on hand at all times and we offer a personalised service.
Dedicated Account Manager
You will be assigned a dedicated account manager who will work closely with you throughout your manufacture and assembly process. They will project manage all aspects from procurement of parts to lead-times and costs.
Automatic Quality Inspection
All assembled boards will pass through an AOI system to ensure there are no errors present. Having an inspection process allows us to get it right first time!
Good Component Quality
The procurement of parts is left to the professional assemblers, their expertise and long-term cooperation with the suppliers help them to get the best component quality at the lowest price.
Early Problem Detection
One painful experience you want to avoid is realizing a mistake when you have already spent too much on the PCB. An error that occurs during prototyping for the printed circuit board is better detected before the boards are produced. Ordering parts separately exposes you to that danger. Allow us to take this pressure out of your hands!
