How to build your own parts library in JLCPCB
Have you ever encountered the situation that when you place a PCB assembly order, the parts you want have not enough stock or no stock at all?
To solve this issue, JLCPCB provides a pre-order parts service. It allows you to order parts before you place a PCB-assembly order, and hold the inventory at JLCPCB until you need the PCBA service. Therefore you can get enough parts to be assembled on your boards all the time.
Please note that the parts pre-ordering service is for your PCB assembly orders, so the parts won't be shipped separately to you.
