Santa Ana based circuit board fabricator, Accurate Circuit Engineering continues to provide their customers with top tier service with programs like their long offered free non-recurring engineering service and electrical test on all orders, with the exception of mil spec certified and offshore parts.
Accurate Circuit Vice President Brandon Lowe commented, “In addition to providing quality, on time product, we are constantly striving to keep our pricing competitive and find ways to stand out from the crowd. One of these ways was to start offering free NRE and electrical test. I feel this gives ACE a competitive edge. It’s a tremendous value add for our customers, as I am often told that we are one of the only board shops that truly offers these services for free, not just rolling the price into the unit cost. When we say free we mean free.”
Lowe went on to explain that there are a few other special circumstances where NRE fees can apply, however, most of the time these services are provided free of charge.

IPC’s Automotive Addendum task group was started in November 2014 and the first edition of IPC 6012-DA was released in April 2016. We are now working on the revised version, and expect a release in Q2 2018. As standards need to evolve, develop and follow the needs of the industry, this work is continuous.
