Sanmina is dedicated to providing custom backplane and printed circuit board (PCB) solutions that deliver performance and value. Whether a customer needs passive, active or high-bandwidth backplanes, our combined backpanel fabrication and assembly drives cost-effective solutions, ensuring performance and reliability.

With more than 450 dedicated design and NPI engineers, plus 1,500+ technical resources strategically located around the world, Sanmina produces the best possible designs through:

  • Project Design & Engineering Management – Design for manufacturability and assembly (DFM/DFA), regulatory agency requirements and NPI initiatives
  • Electrical Design – ECAD (PCB layout assistance), high-speed engineering, signal integrity with patented technology such as ZBC™ and OPTI-VIA™, selective PTH configurations, active/passive components (SMT/BGA) and press-fit connector systems
  • Physical Design – Mechanical, signal integrity, power distribution, connector selection and thermal integration

Signal Integrity
Our signal integrity-optimized solutions ensure high-speed performance is delivered throughout the interconnect system. Our team of skilled engineers take into account distributed interconnect parameters and subtle EM effects while emphasizing behavior of passive interconnect circuit elements. Effective signal integrity solutions are a fundamental prerequisite in cost-effective manufacturing.
