New Progress NPI prototyping service

New for 2014, Simtek are offering a “Progress NPI” prototyping service. Recognising the requirement for small prototype runs that need to iron out any potential placement or reflow issues, the company is offering a “wet paste/reflow” service where any chip components are manually placed whilst any no leg components (such as QFNs and BGAs) are machine placed to ensure alignment accuracy and elimination of shorts or opens.

Mixing it with the best

Margate-based Simtek EMS, in its current guise has been offering a range of electronics manufacturing services for over two years now, following a Management Buyout (MBO) by the current owners Richard Samuel and Lee Boulton in 2004. But the company’s roots and experience extends back some 10 years as Richard explains.
