Screaming Circuits: Turn-Key Prototype Electronic Assembly Order


Turn-Key Prototype Electronic Assembly Order

Tutorial on placing a Turn-Key assembly order with Screaming Circuits:

With a kitted quote, you send us the pcbs and parts and we build up the assembly for you. With a turn-key order, you just send us your files and we quote and then buy the boards and parts as well as build up the assembly.

Placing a turn-key order is not very different from a kitted order. The key difference is that you will not see a materials quote right away. You first place the order, then we will call you about the pcb and components details. In about a day, we will return the full quote and you can decide to proceed or not.

  1. Create a Labor Quote: Start on our quote page and tell us a few details of your project and obtain a price quote. Mostly, you are describing your BOM (bill of materials) to us. After "Generating" the quote, choose quantity and turn time. Then select "Order".
  2. "Place" your Order: For a turn-key order, these details will be used to complete your quote. Give a project name and timeline. In the "Box Details" section, enter "Turn-Key"
    In the "Special Instructions", note that this is for a turn-key quote.
  3. Payment Method: You can select "Other" or give us your credit card information (Visa, Mastercard, or AmEx) so we will have it on file. We will not charge it unless you authorize us to proceed.
  4. File Upload: The last step of the online order process. On this page you can upload your files (in a single .zip file, please).
  5. Call us: To complete your turn-key quote, we need to speak with you first. The online quote will only show labor costs. We will quote the materials manually.


For Turn-key pcb prototype assembly orders, the online
quote will only reflect the labor costs. Call, toll-free,
1-866-784-5887 to quote the pc board fab and other materials costs.

Don't forget to click the blue SUBMIT button at the bottom of the page.

You can also have us do a partial turn-key order for you. We can get the PCBs and you can send us the parts. We can do the opposite. Or we can get some of the parts while you supply the rest. Just use that Special Instructions box or give us a call.

You can get started on our assembly quote page.

Hi Joe;

Our sample Excel BOM can be down loaded at:

This is based on what we would need. I imagine that it's not far off from what most folks would need.

Trying to find the format needed for the Excel based BOM. I'm trying to setup a few Turn-Key boards for a non-technical buyer.

well i must say your really have a good way of presenting things .
