Advanced Assembly

Form Factor No Longer Limits Performance

For electronics manufacturing services (EMS), advanced assembly is the ability to precisely integrate electronic and mechanical components of a variety of materials into tight spaces without compromising performance. Jabil’s unique experience with micro/macro assembly, interconnect, and wafer-level manufacturing processes enables reducing the size of electronic components and increasing functionality without increasing product size. With Jabil, form factor no longer limits performance.

Miniaturization continues to drive markets from aerospace to consumer electronics — smaller, lighter, thinner, and flexible components sell better. More product categories require friendly human machine interfaces. Increasingly, designs require integrating circuits with non-traditional materials such as glass, films, paper, and textiles. Volumetric efficiency is a key success factor.

Wearables and medical devices — fitness trackers, smart watches, headsets, smart terminals, head-up displays, insulin pumps, and hearing aids — are particularly enabled by portability. Jabil advanced assembly capabilities solve the following challenges by fitting functionality in a smaller footprint:

  • User comfort challenges
  • Accessibility barriers
  • Temperature/energy consumption concerns

Jabil’s complementary capabilities in materials technology, photonics, and optics (including active alignment) open new possibilities for product design and development. Our manufacturing and supply chain experience, and global footprint, ensures the delivery of reliable product on-time, close-to-market, and at the lowest landed cost.
