Process Flow

Initial Concept Explore the requirements and challenges to bring the idea to reality. At DL Designs, we can meet these challenges and make improvements to enhance capabilities.   Schematic Capture Building upon the concept from the ground up starts with the schematic. With all of the correct information, the schematic is used to guide the process and generate key information.   Library Maintenance An area that is often overlooked and can end with manufacturing complications. Our footprints are built to IPC 7351 standard with 3D models assigned by the manufacturer.   PCB Layout Today's technology is evolving faster to enhance how we live. Using the best techniques to create a PCB design to meet the requirements of the concept is vital. Chip manufacturers demand more from PCB layouts to ensure precise functionality.   Manufacturing and Assembly The options available to build the concept are endless. Quality, capabilities, timescales, costs have to be prioritised. Tried and tested partners of DL Designs can find the right solution for you and your product.   Testing Inexpensive prototypes allows the design to examined.  This is arguably the most important board the engineer will work with.  Feasibility studies are crucial to to avoid time lost and expensive PCB coasters.  

What do our customers say?

After running a survey to our customers, we were happy to see how satisfied they were and why 90% of our new business is through recommendation. DL Designs takes all feedback onboard and continues to develop to suit the needs of our customers.


Using the right tools is important to complete complex layouts as accurately as possible. It is important to use software to suit our customer's needs, to show how the layout is progressing and how the completed design will appear

Engineering Capability

We have design engineers to build your product from an idea or support your engineering team. As we work as a group we can help deliver a faster turn key solution.  We can arrange production with our trusted suppliers as well.

Video Consultation

Using online business platforms is a great way to share ideas for new projects and observe progress on current designs. Exploring the design with our team often helps to maximise potential. On the flip side, video conferencing is essential for interpreting any problems that may occur.

Signal Integrity

With the advancement of technologies in the electronics industries, high speed signals and increasing complexity is more common place. The importance of a methodical design is crucial for a fully functioning PCB. DDR memory, PCI-E, Gigabit Ethernet are some of the intricacies we take into consideration with how they function and how their environment functions with them.

Layout Expertise

PCB layout is the main bedrock of DL Designs. With a combination of over 100 years of experience and over 7000 designs, DL Designs creates all types of designs to suit all industries. We have a finely tuned system of working to ensure the PCB meets expectations and allows customers to have valuable input. We liaise with manufacturing companies to facilitate the requirements of processors and complex circuitry into our design flow.

Our latest purchase…

Our latest purchase, CMZ 35TDY – Due to customer driven demand we have invested in the large multi axis CNC lathe, 450mm diameter with a maximum turning length of 1400mm, ‘’Live tooling’’ enabling us to Machine features on the full length of the component removing the need of costly 2nd operations.
