Michigan-based PCB assembler launched ADCOProto, an instant prototype costing tool for design engineers

Unique Prototyping Solution for Any Challenge

If you are an electronic design engineer, two of the biggest challenges in your day-to-day job are most likely component availability and projected cost for new prototype projects.

In order to solve these issues, ADCO Circuits has developed a free instant costing tool for circuit board assemblies that takes a bill of material and outputs a price with complete unit costs. Costing is totally transparent and integrates inventory levels from multiple suppliers. The new tool, ADCOProto, is free and simple to use.

The ADCOProto tool assists engineers in scrubbing their Excel file to eliminate typos and sourcing errors. By only using component specifications from a large inventory, our tool gives instant documented feedback on changes needed to finalize your bill of material. The BOM output automatically highlights changes made from the original BOM that was submitted for analysis. The costing tool can also be used for assembly service pricing and online orders. Guaranteed delivery timetables for complex circuit board assemblies are shipped free of charge.

ADCOProto, a division of ADCO Circuits, is based in Rochester Hills, Michigan. All surface mount assemblies are produced using one of three state-of-the-art Yamaha equipment. Each assembly goes through automated inspection for solder paste and post reflow processes. With over 38-years-of-experience, we are a no-risk supplier for prototype to medium volume assemblies. ADCO Circuits’ quality systems are registered to AS9100, ITAR, ISO 9001, IATF 16949, UL, and J-STD-001, IPC-A-Class 3.
