PCB SOLUTIONS: CONCURRENT ENGINEERING




The most successful projects involve collaboration early on in the design process. A dedicated Applications Engineer with in-depth knowledge to anticipate and eliminate issues will be assigned to your project early in the design process. We then work with you every step of the way to ensure your project’s ease and success.


WHAT TO EXPECT

EARLY PROJECT INVOLVEMENT
We begin involvement with our customers early on to prevent expensive mistakes or mismatches in the stages to follow. Working with Pioneer Circuits from the start is beneficial because we know the best practices from design to fabrication, and all throughout final assembly. Having an expert who understands the entire PCB solutions process is essential for a smooth project.

UPFRONT CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND DESIGN RULE CHECKS (DRC’S)
Our experienced staff is there to advise you on whether your designs are ready for manufacturing and if there are simpler alternatives to help save you money. Our technical knowledge can ensure that your design is optimized for the manufacturing process. However, it is important to note that complete ownership of design remains with our customers.

SELECTION OF APPROPRIATE MATERIALS
This is a valuable component to concurrent engineering as it will help to achieve the best end results.  The most successful PCB solutions start with the best material selections. Different materials can offer different capabilities, and Pioneer Circuits can help you understand which of these materials will suit your project best.

MARS PATHFINDER ROVER

The hardwiring on the Pathfinder originally deemed the Mars Rover's mission to be impossible. With Concurrent Engineering, Pioneer Circuits was able to fabricate a PCB solution that allowed the Pathfinder’s mission to last 90 days, 60 days longer than its original goal. Concurrent engineering with the Mars Pathfinder Rover allowed Pioneer Circuits to understand the nature of the problems due to the original wiring of the rover. Pioneer Circuits was then able to create a PCB solution from concept of design to final assembly that would fit the rover and allow it to explore Martian environments.
