Your Bill of Materials for Your PCB Assembly Service Provider
What You Need to Include in Your Bill of Materials for Your PCB Assembly Service Provider
Are you putting in your first order with a new PCB assembly service provider? One of the most important documents in this exchange will be your bill of materials (BOM). A bill of materials will tell your PCB manufacturer exactly which components and how many of those components you will need to complete your job. Some of the most common mistakes that derail a big order can be traced back to incorrect information on a BOM.
What should you include on the BOM that you send to your PCB assembly service provider? Every vendor will be different, but almost all of them will ask you to include:
- Quantity of components
- Component reference designators
- Component manufacturer name
- Component part number
It is always best to speak with your vendor contact to confirm what information they need before sending the BOM. This can help you avoid costly and frustrating mistakes! Contact Us.
