Affordable pcb manufacturer

#1 Post by robmechanicse » 30 Aug 2019, 07:03

Hey,

I need a decent pcb manufacturer and just got a quote from these guys: pcb assembly

They are pretty cheap which is more than appealing to me, but i want to make sure they are also fast and reliable. I dont want to invest into garbage pcbs even though their prices are great. They seems like a pretty small company so i'm hoping for some kind of validation from someone.

Has anyone already ordered from these guys?

Thanks in advance,

Robert

I found PCB products of JLCPCB very cheap as compared to other manufacturers. But, I prefer to get PCB products from US distributor and found NeodenUSA as a good distributor in this regard. Many cheap manufacturers are also available at AliExpress and Amazon but be careful with the false and projected reviews.

Hi ,

In fact in China there are thousands of PCB manufacturers but it is really hard to choose which one is the best ,but last time I buy a products from Stariver Circuit PCB(www.starivergroup.com) which is good quality and they may not as cheap as orthers but they quality and lead time are pretty good. They have 3 factories and which focust on small medium and large volume production a good thing is they can give you some good payment terms (like net 10 days or 5 days ) but it dpends on your products quantity.

I think it depend on your requests on the boards,In China PCB markets, price from low-middle-high for differents demands.Factories can be distinguished as 1-4 layers pcb manufactuer,6-10 layers,12-16layers,up to 16layer,HDI ect.
If for personal use, I think most of factories can do PCBs good for you.
But if you want to buy PCBs which all were Inspected per IPC standard -IPC-A-610C (normally class 2),you had better to buy from standard factories.
They will have COC reports to describe all parameters on boards, and microsection and tin test samples.
Class 3 more stricter,just like the thickness of cu on wall 25um min. no x-outs,outlooking very good. But 10-20% higher price than Class 2.

So, has anyone else ordered from these guys? The thing is that I'll soon be getting some of this Portuguese real estate, initially for the holidays, but I'm planning to have a workshop there where I'll assemble custom made RC planes, for which I'll need circuit boards.
