After you have an assembled PCB, you will need to finish the device with a box build, sometimes referred to as a systems integration. This combines the PCB, cables and wires, subassemblies, and the electronic enclosure. When the full box build is complete, your electronic assembly will be carefully protected and ready to function in […]

A box build, also known as systems integration, can be anything from a simple PCBA housed in a small enclosure to a cabinet housing a complex electromechanical system. Box build assembly involves everything from start to finish in electronic manufacturing, including design, production, and construction. Box builds are cost-effective, saving both time and money. There […]

A box build enclosure includes all the assembly work taken place after the production of the PCB. A box build will usually include sub-assemblies, installation of components, routing of cabling and wiring, and fabrication of the enclosure itself. For a successful box build, both the client and the electronic manufacturer need to work together from […]

Box builds can range from single printed circuit boards enclosed in plastic to complex systems inside rugged metal shells. A box build is much more than a simple PCB. Box builds include subassemblies, mechanical components, wiring, cables, and installation in the enclosure. The complete, integrated system will be delivered to your customer, so when outsourcing, […]
