How to use myProto BOM Tool in order to finalise the bill of materials of your circuit assembly.
The “Bill of Materials”, known as BOM, is simply a list of all the parts needed to build a specific printed circuit board. A PCB BOM is generated from PCB design or EDA software, where the part information must already be available in the CAD system.
Accepted BOM file formats are xls, xlsx, ods and csv. Please, find here sample BOM files in .xls and .ods formats.
The following information is normally present in a BOM file generated by the CAD software. myProto requires the presence only of the MPN or SKU data along with the Designators or Quantity.
This is the user interface that will allow you to easily search and replace components that don’t correspond to your expectations or aren’t currently available with our suppliers. It also allows you to ignore the unnecessary components that are present in you BOM or to have them unmounted or even activate the self delivery option if you want to use your own components stocks.
Click on the bom line to open the detailed component window.
