How can we move a medical product from one SMT PCBA line to another?

I placed order of which the medical product is just in the step of board assembly, not a finished device. They need to go to other product line for finalize the whole goods. How can I take care of this process across two suppliers?

First, make sure you customers can accept movement, especially for bulk buyers. If just for retail consumers, it is OK to do that.

Second, the FAI should have not just one parts. One is for the former line, the other is for the latter line.

Third, each of FAI should be passed functional test.

Fourth, keep evidence to trace back. Since PCBA lines have changed, unit quality data of each process should be keep record, including lot number.

What Others Are Asking

Can HASL finish be used for castellated pads?

I am designing a PCB that uses castellated edges to connect to the parent board. I would like to use hot air solder leveling finish to save on costs for prototyping, but I am concerned that the non-planar surfaces of the module may pose assembly issues. Is it common at all to use HASL for castellated boards, or do I need Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold to ensure successful assembly?

How can I connect my small PCB with sensor to the bigger PCB?

My small PCB is mounting a very sensitive fragile sensor on the top surface that has to be wire bonded to the PCB, so I am trying to design a smaller PCB that can be surface mounted to the bigger PCB. How can I get some kind of thin footprint for interconnecting the two PCB boards?
