The minimum we need is:
.: Quantity of boards for assembly.
.: A complete Bill of Materials (BOM) with manufacturer's part numbers and/or a good description for every line item.
.: Any special assembly notes or requirements such as who will supply what components, lead or lead-free etc.
.: If we are to supply bare PCB's, a full set of gerber's with drill data.
.: Any additional electronic data is helpful though not required (Assembly drawings, PCB files i.e. Altium, Mentor Graphics, Eagle).

Yes, all of the services provided by Triode Group are available as lead-free.

Yes, we provide both full and partial turnkey services of materials, we only use authorised and reputable suppliers of components (no grey-market parts).

Yes, for prototypes and low volume builds this is fine. For higher build quantities we require a strip at least 300mm long for use in our machines

We assemble products according to customer specifications and to IPC-A-610 Class II & III

We can provide a DFM report for all new products assembled at Triode.  If you would like a pre-job review, contact us and one of our Process Engineers will review your product.

We will accept any order from one unit through to around ten thousand units.

We can assemble up to 400mm x 400mm without any difficulty.  Larger PCBs can be populated but please call us first to discuss.

For a small fee we are able to bake your components and seal them in a moisture barrier bag with desiccant.

A PCB is a printed circuit board, also known as a printed wiring board. It is used in electronics to build electronic devices. A PCB serves two purposes in the construction of an electronic device; it is a place to mount the components and it provides the means of electrical connection between the components.  A PCB populated with electronic components is a printed circuit assembly (PCA), also known as a printed circuit board assembly (PCBA).

A contract manufacturer (CM) is a manufacturer that contracts with a firm for components or products.

It is a form of outsourcing and is beneficial to all companies involved; each company can focus on their core competencies.  This allows our customers to focus their efforts on the design, marketing, sales and other essential business aspects rather than bearing the burden of running a manufacturing facility.

Some of the benefits of contract manufacturing are:

  • Cost Savings - Companies save on their cost of capital because they do not have to pay for a facility and the equipment needed for production.  They can also save on labour costs such as wages and training, there are no production wages to pay during quiet periods.
  • Advanced Skills - Companies can take advantage of skills they may not possess, but the contract manufacturer does.  The main focus of Triode Group is electronic assembly, we are continuously improving our production methods to make gains in quality and efficiency.
  • Cash flow - with an approved credit application customers can enjoy up to 50 days to pay after receiving goods.
  • Economies of Scale - We have multiple customers which we produce for and are making purchases for components and circuit boards multiple times a week, because of this we can offer reduced rates in acquiring raw materials and reduced shipping costs.
