PCB Design and Layout

High Power, High Speed, Manufacturability ​& Regulatory

As part of a larger turnkey product development, or if you have a completed the schematic and just need a board designer to complete the layout, Au-Zone has the tools and expertise in house to complete your PCB design efficiently and predictably.   These service engagements typical scale from assisting your in-house resource with a review or particularly complex layout all the way up to completing the entire PCB design including enclosure design.  Having completed numerous designs from simple 2 layer boards to complex, multi-board designs using advanced technologies and substrates, we’re comfortable quoting and delivering on both ends of the spectrum.  The list below provides a high level overview of the scope and scale of our layout capabilities.
