Design and Layout

Expert PCB Design and Layout Services

At Acorn Assembly, we take your PCB designs and have high-quality, USA-assembled circuit boards back to you in a matter of days. Sometimes our customers need help with the design or layout of their circuits or even help with the entire product development process.

We work closely with several design companies that provide a variety of PCB design and layout services. We regularly make introductions between our customers. Here’s what you can expect when working with us.

Experienced Crew

Acorn Assembly has industry veterans deeply versed in working with prototype and production projects. Our engineers have years of knowledge and experience in the assembly of circuit boards.

Professional Partners

We also work with many U.S. companies that specialize in full product design as well as PCB design. You can trust these partners to help you draft custom PCBs. If you need help with PCB design services, we will connect you with one of our highly-qualified board designers partners. This ensures both fast lead times and high-quality outputs. We also do this for our board fabrication service.


Once your design is ready for prototyping, Acorn uses the latest and best equipment and software for PCB assembly. These resources allow us to create high-quality PCBs quickly.

Expert Testing

We also invest in quality control tools to ensure that the products we put out are assembled precisely to your requirements and industry standards before they reach you, and ultimately, your consumers. Here are some of our test offerings:

Continuity or Isolation Test

We use high-quality multimeters to ensure that the copper traces in the board are properly connected to each component.

In-Circuit Tests

In-circuit tests are essential in finding possible shorts, resistance issues, and capacitance problems in a board, especially in areas that are densely populated with components. We use the Agilent 3070 Series III ICT and Takaya APT-9411 E Flying Probe, two of the best in-circuit test equipment in the market.

Complete Collaboration

Our team works closely with you throughout the process. It starts with the custom quote, where we review your BOM and CAD files to find any possible areas of concern for assembly and continues until we package each competed board for shipment to you. You can always contact us with any concerns or questions you may have about the PCB prototypes we make for you.

PCB Design and Layout Capabilities

Our PCB design partners are ready to take on the challenges you may have in designing your PCB. These companies work with a wide variety of applications from consumer projects to RF to power applications and everything in between. They are capable of delivering the following services:

Product Envisioning

Have a great idea but no in-house team or a team already at full capacity. Product development companies will work with you to bring your concepts to reality. These companies have multi-disciplined engineering teams geared to take you through the entire product development cycle.

Mechanical Engineering

Many products need more than electronics. Companies can provide design services for the mechanical elements of projects supporting needs in everything from injection molding design to static and dynamic motion designs and thermal management.

Wide Variety of PCB Types and Materials

Our facility, together with our partner designers, have the equipment, expertise, and materials to design and manufacture different kinds of PCBs. Whether you need a simple two-layer board or a complex multi-layer or multiple flex-rigid ones, you can expect high-quality work from us.

Firmware Programming and Interpretation

Designers also build custom firmware for your PCB from scratch. Their programmers ensure that every line of code in the program is free from bugs before they implement it.


If you have an older or faulty PCB design or layout you’d like to improve, professional engineers can make a world of difference. Engineers will pinpoint components, traces, software and other areas that may need to be revised. They will provide you with many different suggestions before they implement them in your board’s design.

Your partner for printed circuit boards

Acorn Assembly is your partner for all of your printed circuit board needs. We offer excellent prototype and product assembly services. And if you need more help with design, we will gladly connect you with one of the many top-notch PCB and product design companies with know.
