Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS).

API provides design engineering and contract electronic manufacturing services (EMS) for the commercial/industrial, energy, medical, military, and telecommunications markets.

By combining advanced engineering intelligence, keen knowledge of cost efficiencies, and applying our broad breadth of expertise, API delivers unparalleled quality, while giving customers a competitive edge.

 

Design Engineering

Our award-winning team can optimize existing designs for streamlined production. Our engineers can also oversee your product from concept to completion, incorporating DFM/DFA/DFT (design for manufacturability / design for assembly / design for test) principles in the early design stages to assure seamless production.

Electronics Assembly

API offers a wide range of services supporting PCB assembly, box build (PCB subassembly or final product assembly), electromechanical assembly and full turnkey production.Manufacturing capabilities include:

  • Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) 
  • High Speed SMT Board Assembly, Single and Double Sided 
  • Circuit Card Assembly (CCA) 
  • Fine Pitch 0201 Component Placement 
  • Thick and Thin Film Hybrid Manufacturing 
  • BGA & Micro-BGA (Ball Grid Array) 
  • RoHS Compliant Assembly Mixed Technologies (SMT and Through-Hole) 
  • Box Build (Subassembly or Final Product Assembly) 
  • Electromechanical Assembly 
  • 100% Material Procurement, 100% Consigned Material Management, or a Mix of Both 
  • Dedicated Program Management 
  • Cellular / Lean Manufacturing 
  • Cable and Wire Harness 
  • Conformal Coating (AR, UR and SR) 
  • In-process and Post-Assembly Verification (AOI, X-ray, Flying Probe, Functional and In-circuit Test) 

PCB Rapid Prototyping and New Product Introduction (NPI)

API helps customers convert designs into proof of concept PCB assemblies that can rapidly transition into full-scale production. Our dedicated NPI (New Product Introduction) team supports customers with PCB layout, BOM scrubbing, documentation verification, material management, rapid prototyping, initial pilot builds, test and even turnkey box build (subassembly or final assembly) utilizing our award winning DFx (Design For Excellence) every step of the way to ensure reliability and reduced total lifecycle costs through streamlined production.

Supply Chain Management Services

When it comes to Supply Chain Management, API understands that you need to keep your inventory levels low to control costs, yet still need to respond quickly to new orders to satisfy your customers. API customers leverage our supply chain management expertise to receive high quality products without a high inventory risk. We are able to customize our stocking and logistics programs to meet your production needs and reduce your inventory exposure from prototypes all the way through high volume production orders.

Test Engineering

Our Test Engineering department is staffed with experienced electrical engineers and technicians who excel at working with customers to develop methodologies and design fixtures to reduce overall manufacturing costs, improve production yields, identify failures early, support root cause analysis, and assist engineering with DFT (Design For Test) analysis. Some of the types of testing we can perform include:

  • Foster a Continuous Improvement Environment 
  • Reduce Overall Manufacturing Costs 
  • Improve Production Yields 
  • Identify Failures 
  • Early Support Root Cause Analysis 
  • Assist Engineering With DFT (Design For Test) Analysis 

Rework Services

Sometimes the rework of existing PCB assemblies is necessary to fix a design flaw, upgrade an assembly with new components, or it is simply a cost-effective solution to building from scratch. API’srework specialists assure that the resulting PCBs and assemblies meet the highest quality standards.

Featured Certifications

  • ISO 9001:2008 Certified Facilities
  • AS9100 Rev C Certified Facilities 
  • Capability to meet stringent defense and military certifications, such as IPC-610 Class 3 and J-STD-001 
  • RoHS Compliant
