Build Kit Requirements

“Kit” of assembly instructions including:

Customer Supplied Assembly Drawings – These are not required for assembly, but they do help to ensure all special PCB Assembly instructions are carried out properly. A good assembly drawing would have the type of solder paste (general specification) and flux type.

Bill Of Materials – should be included in Microsoft Excel or delimited format. Please highlight any components we will not be placing, or any parts that are not included in the kit. BOM should include: Part #, Reference Designator, Description, and package.

Gerber files – We ask that you send us all Gerber files generated by your CAD program, as if you were sending them for fabrication. At a minimum we need copper, solder paste and silk screen layers for assembly.

CAD files – We ask that customers provide an ASCII CAD output file, sometimes referred to as a “GENCAD” or “NEUTRAL” file. This file may vary depending on the specific CAD system used for layout. Contact BESTProto for more information or if you have questions about this requirement.
