On site PCB design

Dekimo has 30 years of experience in developing PCB designs for customers. In addition to executing PCB designs as part of a project, Dekimo’s PCB engineers can also be hired for a certain period of time, to come to the customer’s premises and do design work on site. Both in Belgium (Leuven) and the Netherlands (Delft), we have PCB/Layout engineers available for flexible staffing assignments.
Also when a PCB design is started as a part of project, Dekimo has a tradition of going on site for the critical design stages and verifications.
That way, they can form a real extension of the customer’s own design staff, co-operating closely with their electronic designers, mechanical designers, project leaders, software/firmware designers etc.


Advantages of on site PCB design

  • Circuit design can be discussed and explained face to face.
  • Technology decisions can be made on the spot:
    layer build and PCB technology, assembly technology
  • Interfacing with mechanical design can be checked
    thoroughly (e.g. height checks).
  • Split up into different PCB if necessary.
  • Consultation of FPGA programmer on possible pin swaps
    in order to improve BGA fanout.

Technologies we are fluent in:

  • Complex multilayer PCBs
  • High density fine pitch BGA fanout techniques
  • Microvias, Blind & Burried vias
  • Impedance controlled high speed digital design
  • PCI, DDR-RAM, Utopia, … bus routing
  • Mixed analog/digital
  • Routing of Switched Power Supplies
