PCB Layout and Design

Printed circuit board (PCB) layout and design services is one of the ways that we help our customers get to market faster as our engineering team has significant real world experience designing PCBs for performance and manufacturability.

Our 65 years of PCB manufacturing history allows us to quickly get customers full Gerber and drawing packages if you:

  1. Require a PCB layout from design schematics you have created.
  2. Have an existing design that needs to be updated, changed, or optimized for cost effective assembly.
  3. Need a new PCB design, from concept (schematics/BOM) to creation (full PCB documentation).

Our team of engineers and CAD/CAM operators are available to discuss any project needs that our customer may have as we are fully licensed and utilize industry leading tools, including Cadence Allegro, Mentor Expedition, Mentor's PADS, Altium, Valor for DFM Analysis.

America's Oldest. A History of Innovation.

Today at Epec, the customer comes first, and everything we do must be put through that filter. Whether it is developing e-commerce platforms to make it easier to work with us, or creating a NPI (new product introduction) process that helps our customers get to market faster, or the other 10 new projects we have in process, we must focus on building the new. By doing that every day, and by always making the customer our top priority, we plan on being here for another 65 years and then some.
