Free Printed Circuit Boards, Parts and Assembly for Environment-Focused Organizations

Royal Circuits, Digi-Key and Advanced Assembly Partner to Support the Electronic Prototype Needs of Nonprofits Around the World

April 21, 2020 – Royal Circuit Solutions, a global manufacturer of quick-turn printed circuit boards, today announced an initiative that will provide free printed circuit board manufacturing to qualifying nonprofit organizations. In partnership with Digi-Key Electronics and Advanced Assembly, any nonprofit organization working on environmental projects or wild animal protection programs is invited to apply for free circuit boards, free parts, and free assembly. 

CEO and owner of Royal Circuit Solutions Milan Shaw grew up in Kenya.  There, he saw the importance of living in harmony with the natural world. His appreciation and support for the environment and the wild animals that inhabit it has grown over the years.

“Much of the funding nonprofits rely on for operations have disappeared due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Milan Shah, CEO of Royal Circuits. “However, research and development projects must continue if we are to find new ways of supporting the environment. That is why I’m proud to be joining with other industry leaders to launch a unique program that gives back by supporting the electronic needs of environmental and animal advocacy non-profits.”

“We are extremely happy to be a part of this worthwhile project,” said Lawrence Davis, president and founder of Advanced Assembly. “With this program, we are able to support innovative product development that will hopefully leave the world a little bit better than we found it.”

The program combines printed circuit boards, parts and assembly into one, complete package, making it easy for nonprofits to develop electronic products that will help achieve their goals. Elements include:

  • Free PCBs. Qualifying organizations will receive up to five printed circuit boards with standard specifications from Royal Circuit Solutions.
  • Free Components. Industry leader, Digi-Key, will provide up to $50 in parts to each participating nonprofit.
  • Free Assembly. Advanced Assembly’s teams will assemble the parts and boards of up to 5 assemblies for a $500 value.

Additionally, each project will be fabricated and assembled in under 10 days due to the quick-turn nature of the participating companies. To apply for the program or for more details, visit
