Aerospace and Defense PCB Capabilities

When selecting an aerospace electronics manufacturer, it is crucial to find a partner that not only meets but exceeds industry standards. Matric, a full-service aerospace PCB assembly contract manufacturer, excels in meeting these standards, making us a dependable partner for aerospace and defense projects.

Matric, a full-service aerospace PCB assembly contract manufacturer, works not only with government and military partners but also with private companies. 

Unlike many other aerospace & defense electronics manufacturers, we specialize in Class 3 electronics. We’ll help you meet intrinsic safety requirements for military grade PCBs -- and here’s how:



Your electronic contract manufacturer (ECM) needs to have all the requirements covered up-front for handling sensitive aerospace design standards.

Matric is ITAR-compliant and fully certified in AS9100D. ITAR compliance helps you prevent violations, lost contracts, and legal problems. Being an AS9100D certified company and producing ITAR-registered PCBs means we’ve proven our internal structure ensures product safety and reliability for PCBs in aerospace and defense.


It’s a given that you want your contractor to possess proven precision in placing aerospace electronic components. Matric takes the relationship a step further by providing valuable advice when it comes to PCB aerospace & defense design.

With Class 3 products, there are certain quality marks you have to hit -- or else you’re stuck in orbit. We may, for example, pay particular attention to a certain assembly option that would be an afterthought to a quick-turn PCB board house or a less qualified ECM.

Our technicians are fully trained in both through-hole and surface mount technologies. We can even take your existing through-hole PCB design and adapt it for surface mounting.


Aerospace engineering and design is tricky.

Are your aerospace electronics manufacturer's employees not just certified, but also well-trained in handling sensitive projects? Matric makes sure all employees who will be involved in your project have the right training, not just some of them.

An ECM should have high-tech inspection equipment in-house to shorten the supply chain. This will ensure issues are ironed out before your product launches.

Matric handles prototyping and testing in-house. Available testing includes:

  • Functional testing
  • Visual inspection
  • X-ray inspection
  • Flying probe testing
  • In-circuit testing
  • Automatic optical inspection (AOI) testing
  • BGA inspection
  • System simulation


Matric is capable of designing and assembling military & aerospace electronics for even the most sensitive projects. Our IP protection systems, enforced through all stages of development keep your design out of the wrong hands:

  • A secure network for incoming information
  • Outgoing portals for sending testing, inspection, and certification documentation
  • Data is backed up every 15 minutes
  • Use of protected programs (such as Office 365)
  • No outside-the-office access to any IP-related data
  • An ECM system that’s password-protected and ITAR-controlled
  • No drawings or other sensitive materials are left lying around, and materials which are no longer needed are shredded
  • Close monitoring of visitors -- labels, photo IDs, sign-in and sign-out enforcement, special jackets, and cellphone/camera bans
