Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) May 28, 2010
Electronic Interconnect now offers a wide range of SMT PCB design and manufacturing services. “We have the capabilities to manufacture all types of Surface Mount printed circuit boards, not only 100% SMT, but also mixed technology boards, single-sided, double-sided, and in multiple layers”, says Pratish Patel. “Not only can our engineers help with design of the board to head off potential assembly problems, but our capabilities in the SMT arena are wide-ranging, including all types of component footprints from standard to fine pitch, from BGAs to micro-BGA land patterns.”
Pratish Patel Appointed Technical Director of SMTA Great Lakes Chapter
Pratish Patel has recently been appointed Technical Director of the Great Lakes Chapter of the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA). In his new position, Pratish will direct the 140-member chapter’s technical programs. The volunteer officers and leaders of SMTA local chapters and affiliates plan the majority of association events, serving regional networks of industry professionals.
Pratish Patel founded Electronic Interconnect Technology Inc., a professional printed circuit board designer and manufacturer in 1985. EIC serves design engineers and contract assemblers, providing all types of PCBs from single-sided to complex multilayer boards and Surface Mount (SMT) boards from prototype through production.

Data Verification Makes Sure its Right the First Time
EIC now offers a full range of data verification services to its printed circuit board customers. Data verification of files ensures that problems in design are caught before the first PCB prototypes are generated. “This is a very important service, in keeping with EIC’s overall mission of total customer satisfaction and support. Data verification helps ensure a quality product for our customers Pratish Patel says. We run extensive DRC/DFM analysis on all incoming Gerber files, prototypes or production, so that any issues or concerns that we find are quickly relayed to our customers. We have a very experienced engineering staff whose members are well trained to detect and resolve problems; they do it on a daily basis.” Data verification, Patel adds, helps customers sort out PCB design and DFM issues before they become real production problems later on. “One example of this is our offers IPC Netlist Comparison. IPC Netlist Comparison shows if there is either an electrical Open or Short present in the Gerbers, which was not present in the original PCB design. At this point, we have an opportunity to contact the Design Engineer and alert him/her about this issue and try to resolve it together.”
