PCB Prototyping

Introduction:

The easiest and fastest way to get 10 to 500 PCBs prototyped for an incredible low price while the production and quality control follows all industrial standards. Bigger quantities up to 100k, special material or surface, up to 20 layers or even flexible boards (FPC) are available on request.

How it works:

  1. Choose your options above.
  2. Verify that your Gerber files comply with all limits and with the sub-board definition below.
  3. Upload your Gerber files.
  4. Add to Cart.
  5. Done.

For bigger quantities, more layers, special options, tests, panels, discounts or combination with our other services contact us directly at pcb@smart-prototyping.com. If you want to go from prototying to real production then visit our Other Services.

Production Time:

2 layer board: 3-4 days, if qty>100, 4-6 days.

4 layer board: 4-5 days, if qty>100, 5-7 days.

Expediting Production time:

If the qty>30 pcs, the fastest production time is 48 hours, and cost is the same as 24 hours, so if your qty>30pcs and you paid 24 hours production time, we will arrange 48 hours production time for your order without asking you. Because if we spend oneday asking you, both of us wasting one day time. 48 hour will become 72 hours, too.

Please don't order 24hours and 48hours Lead time on Thursday and Friday, there is no enough time for us ship it out before weekend.

Combinations:

If you want more than only a naked PCB you can combine the PCB prototyping service together with our other electrical prototyping services to a turnkey solution:


Notes:

Gerber Files: If you are ordering the first time make sure that your design is comply with  following min/max limits:


 

Solder Paste Stencil: the solder paste stenil is Laser-cut steel on a aluminum frame with a minimum recommended pitch of 0.4mm.
Please make sure the effective area is twice as big as your PCB so that top and botom side can be placed on the same stencil.

Effective Area Total Size Price Weight
19.0 x 29.0 cm 37.0 x 47.0 cm $20 0.8kg
24.0 x 34.0 cm 42.0 x 52.0 cm $28 1.0kg
37.0 x 47.0 cm 55.0 x 65.0 cm $44 1.7kg
27.0 x 37.0 cm 45.0 x 55.0 cm $36 1.2kg
40.0 x 40.0 cm 58.4 x 58.4 cm $44 1.7kg

 

Separated Sub-Boards: for seperating boards please use a slot according to following pictures. Drilling holes or other methods for seperating boards will be NOT accepted. Boards which are seperated only by silk-screen are not counted as sub-boards and don't have to be payed extra. Junctions between V-Slots are always crossing (X). For other junctions like (T) or (L) you need to use the normal milling and not the V-Slot.


 

Panels: For higher quantities (depending on the used area) we will combine your PCBs automatically to a panel. If you don ot want it or want to define your own panel then contact us before ordering at pcb@smart-prototyping.com.

E-Test: All PCBs are getting a 100% AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) to make sure that all tracks and pads are connected.
In addition to this the PCBs can be tested by a flying probe to make sure that all vias are connected, because this is not visible by the AOI.
1-layer PCBs don't need this tests because there are no vias.
4- and 6-layers will be tested always 100% with a flying probe.
For 2-layer PCBs you have the choice between a 100% E-Test with a flying probe or only to test enough to make sure that at least 95% of all PCBs are working. If you want higher quality choose always E-Test 100% . If you want a lower price then choose E-Test 95%.

Responsibility: We are not taking any responsibility for your Gerber files. We are using them as-they-are for producing the PCBs, so make sure that they comply with all limits and standards.

All Files: no offset, no mirror, no rotate, no upside down.
