1. What is the smallest quantity PCB assembly job you will take?

We take jobs starting with 1 piece prototype through small quantity run. Even though we prefer to use our high speed automated equipment for prototype and small volume PCB assembly, we can work with parts received in bulk and cut tape form also.
