myProto PCBA platform – 5 improvements in 2021

As myProto we are always improving our platform. Our fast PCBA service goes beyond standard PCBAs. For example, we also offer through hole technology, press fit technology or special PCBs. In recent years, the user friendliness and speed of the platform have been increased significantly, but there are also many improvements to come.

Warning: Component Allocation and PCB Base Material Shortage

There are signs of imminent allocations of components. We have already been warned about lead times longer than 6 months for important components such as microcontrollers. In addition, there is also the threat of a shortage of PCB base material. According to estimates, PCB prices could rise by as much as 35%.

Pin-in-Paste technology, the cheapest way to solder THT components

By applying Pin-in-Paste (PIP) reflow technology it is possible to solder THT components with a reflow oven. The successful application of this technology saves time and therefore money. myProto spoke with Tom Meeus of Rotec, specialist in stencils and pastes, about this technology and what you need to consider in order to apply this technology successfully.

myProto will move to Nivelles in 2022

Due to the continued growth, the current myProto building in Brussels is becoming too small. The second PCBA production line will be installed soon, but a third line will certainly not fit. A new building is necessary to be able to grow further. myProto has a completely new office built in Nivelles. MyProto is expected to move in here in 2022 together with parent organization DVC.

EDM Forum (imec) provides DfM Prototyping tips for every engineer

myProto is a member of the EDM Forum of imec (formerly cEDM). We spoke with Geert Willems of the EDM Forum about the role of a PCBA prototype, common mistakes and engineering tips for a perfect prototype. The aim of the EDM Forum is to provide scientific and technical knowledge about the design, production, testing, maintenance and recycling of electronics. The EDM Forum focuses on the non-functional aspects of electronics – also known as Design-for-eXcellence (DfX) – such as manufacturability, quality, cost, testability, reliability, etc.
