PC Board Layout - for estimate only
A short note or drawing describing the board and its components. Please include an estimate or preferred layer count
And if available:
Bill of Materials (BOM).
Print of the schematic
Will you be providing libraries?
Are there any special placement instructions?
Are there any special routing instructions?
Will spec sheets be provided? (Saves Time & Money If You Do!)
Is the board to be AutoRouted or Hand Routed?
Is the board SMT, Thru-Hole or Both?
Turnaround Time Required
Number of Layers (Preferred)
NOTE: The accuracy of our quote will be proportional to the amount of information you send us. In most cases we try to return a firm quote but it may be a range or "not to exceed", thru experience we have found that the better the customer's package the better their price, usually the best approach is to send everything you would send to actually have the work done.
PC Board Layout - Quote for finished project
Sketch a drawing of the board outline with clear dimensions. Show all mounting holes and dimension them if critical; we will advise if necessary. Mark the preferred location of connectors, mounting holes & sizes, specific component placements etc.. Dimension as appropriate.
Bill of Materials with part description and package.
Net List. ProtelŽ or Tango format is preferred. If not available, we can convert from other formats.
Electronic copy of the schematic in ProtelŽ, OrCAD.dsnŽ, PowerLogic, Viewdraw. Alternatively ship a packaged print. Faxes are usually not normally usable.
Mark on the schematic or detail in text any high voltage, high current, high speed or matched lines. We will take due consideration for clock and reset lines, power rails, data and address lines; also division of analog/digital zones. Please mark preferred areas for split planes, test points, and joined ground points.
If internal power planes are necessary.
We will generate a usable fabrication drawing but please provide board details such as thickness, Silkscreen color preference, solder resist as you prefer, otherwise indicate we should proceed to our discretion.
The preferred sequence of layers and any other specific information you need to include for fabrication instructions.
Schematic Capture - for estimate only
Electronic file or the clearest CAD drawing available. Hand drawings can work also, if in doubt communicate your needs.
Attach text that describes your needs, any pertinent information and preferred delivery schedule.
Component data sheets w/footprint information or Hyperlinks to them.
Schematic Capture - quote for finished project
Please email , the drawing, file or what ever you have for us to work from.
All labels and notations should be clear and legible.
Provide directions and labels for high voltage and high current lines.
Add any specific notes or layout instructions.
Provide us with a hand-drawn sketch, marked-up print or CAD file, and we will generate a schematic capture file for your project. We can also clean up any revised or marked-up existing schematics.
Your finished schematic file will contain definitions of all the parts, including:
Values and footprints.
A bill of materials.
A net list.
We can design your board from a schematic on a napkin, however that is not the most efficient way.
