PCB Design 

PDE offers a complete Printed Circuit Board (PCB) layout capability. We have extensive experience in everything from high-density advanced packaging to lowest-cost boards for high volume consumer applications.

To ensure physical integrity with the enclosure design, the board's mechanical parameters are tied to our Mechanical Design teams through links to their mechanical design tools. Our PCB group is also backed-up by the extensive experience and expertise of our RF and Electronics Design teams.

We understand that fast turnaround of layouts is essential to a project, so PDE has a proven design methodology that expedites success. This process features gated design reviews and consultation with you throughout the development cycle; ensuring that manufacturability, testability and quality are built into the design.

“Steve and his team at PDE were an absolute pleasure to work with! Their expertise in PCB design & manufacture helped to ensure the success of our initial prototypes.”
