Screaming Circuits Introduces New Turn-Key PC Board Assembly Process

Share Article

The fastest way to get prototype boards built is now even easier.

Screaming Circuits, Internet specialists in quick-turn and short-run pc board assembly, now offers complete Turn-Key service. Screaming Circuits has been taking orders online and assembling printed circuit boards in as little as 24 hours for three years. Now, with the new Turn-Key program, they will not only build the boards, but will also purchase all the parts and the bare pc boards as well.

Screaming Circuits is focused on making the design engineer’s job easier. Previously an engineer had to send design files to a pc board fab house, contact one, two or more parts houses and then send the parts, boards and design information to Screaming Circuits. Now, with Turn-Key, all the engineer has to do is place a single order with Screaming Circuits. The Screaming Circuits process will take over and very shortly deliver fully assembled pc boards.

“Our customers spend an average of 16.1 hours to procure and manage parts for the typical Screaming Circuits assembly order,” said Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits marketing manager. “With a Turn-Key order, that’s 16 hours our customer can now be back to designing instead of chasing pc boards and parts.”

According to Screaming Circuits research, the number one customer concern about other Turn-Key shops is “fear of unapproved cross matches and substitutions.” To ensure complete confidence in the process, Screaming Circuits only orders the exact parts specified and only substitutes with the customer’s approval. Further, Screaming Circuits has partnerships with several pc board fab houses and uses only high-quality, electrical-tested boards for Turn-Key orders.

The Turn-Key service is available in addition to Screaming Circuits’ other services, which include machine placed SMT down to 0201 components, fine-pitch parts, BGA and leadless parts, and X-ray of all BGA and leadless placements. Screaming Circuits also has available lead-free RoHS processing.

80% of Screaming Circuits’ customers are design engineers in companies ranging from single person consulting shops to large multi-national corporations who need complex boards assembled fast, have designs that can not be built by hand or desire the convenience of easy online ordering.

Screaming Circuits issues quotes and takes and processes orders online for customers nation-wide at With automated ordering, live phone support, an on-time guarantee and a 10% first-order discount, Screaming Circuits is a full-service Internet-based contract manufacturer.
