Product Description

Do you consider yourself a weekend warrior when it comes to printed circuit board technology? We have the right special for you! Our Weekend Warrior special provides multiple quantities of your design - as many that will fit in 90 square inches (usable space on a 12" x 9" panel). And, you'll also receive an exclusive 'PCB Design Genius' t-shirt!

Need a little help determining how many PCBs will fit on a panel? Our Panelizer Tool can be used to estimate boards per panel including multiple parts with different sizes. Exact quantity you will receive may vary due to manufacturing yield and other factors, and cannot be guaranteed.

Manufacturing Specifications

Quantity As many boards as fit within allotted space (90 square inches).
Layers 2 (or 1, if desired)
Lead Time 7 Business Days with an option to expedite to 5 Business Days (2 Days Sooner). To learn more about how lead time is calculated, read this.
Maximum Board Size Maximum board size must be less than 22.5 inches in height and 16.5 inches in width (maximum manufacturing capability).
Minimum Board Size Minimum dimension in height or width is 0.35 inches. Total board area must be greater than 0.4 square inches (i.e. smallest square board allowed is 0.64 x 0.64 inches).
Minimum Trace and Space Etching resolution is 0.005” minimum trace width, 0.005” minimum space width.
Inner Layers N/A. There are no inner layers for this product.
Soldermask Color = Green. Top and Bottom
Silkscreen Color = White. Top and Bottom
Surface Finish HASL (Lead) with option to upgrade to HASL (Lead Free), Immersion Gold (ENIG) or Immersion Silver. Learn more about Surface Finishes.
Soldermask Pad Tolerance Pads on the soldermask layers are grown by 0.003” on all sides. As a result, very fine pitch surface mount components may not include any soldermask between the pins.
Material Dielectric material is FR-4 with a glass transition temperature of 135 degrees Celsius. However, if a RoHS compliant surface finish is selected, then FR-4 with a glass transition temperature of 180 degrees Celsius will be used. Outer layers begin with 0.5 ounces of copper, then during through hole plating, up to 1 ounce of copper may be added to the outer layers. Thus, the total outer layer copper is between 0.0017" and 0.0021". If the board is 1 layer or does not have plated through holes, then the outer layer copper may be as low as 0.0014”, since less plating is required. The total board thickness will be 0.062".
Dielectric Constant The dielectric spacing 0.057” with a dielectric constant of 4.58 +/-0.2.
Plated Holes Boards are manufactured with 2 (or 1) copper layers. All holes with copper pads on the top and bottom are plated through, while holes without a copper pad on the top or bottom layer are non-plated.
Holes All hole sizes between and including 0.010” and 0.247” are available, up to tolerance.
Hole Tolerance These sizes are the finished hole diameters after plating. Holes 0.014” or smaller may be filled with solder and can only be used as via. The tolerance of 0.015” to 0.020” holes is +0.003 / -0.005. The tolerance for the other hole sizes are +/-0.003”.
Hole Location Tolerance Hole location tolerance is +/-0.003”.
Minimum Hole Distance The distance between plated holes of different nets is dictated by annular rings and trace/space. Plated holes of the same net and non-plated holes should be at least 0.005” apart.
Internal Slots and Cutouts Not Allowed
Perimeter Slots Board perimeters are cut to shape using a 0.078” router bit. Slots in the perimeter must be 0.100” or wider. Narrower slots may not be cut correctly.
Perimeter Routing The edges of the board are cut with an accuracy of +/-0.010”. A minimum of 0.020” blank space is recommended between the perimeter and all features on the board. Traces placed closer than 0.010” to the board’s edge may be routed off.
Temperature The maximum operating temperature is 125 degrees C. All boards can survive standard reflow, and RoHS compliant boards can survive RoHS reflow.
Electrical Test Not Available
Other Controlled Impedance, Blind/Buried Vias, Countersinks/Counterbores, Arrays (Tab Rout, Breakaway Tabs, Mouse Bites, etc), Scoring, and Beveled Edges are NOT available with this product option. When required, please request a custom quote here.

  1. Best deal around! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2015

    Very easy to submit gerbers for DFM, good tools and good communications. I will be coming back for sure!

  2. First time customer to BAC 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2015

    When I ordered, thought it was a little pricey , but they delivered with about double the small PCBs expected. Excellent quality and fast delivery. Good stuff. I will definitely be ordering again from BAC.

  3. Excellent quality; Very affordable; But no T-shirt! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2015

    My boards were delivered on time and were of excellent quality. The price makes them very affordable. BAC's silkscreening was noticeably better than that produced by another PCB house that I use regularly -- and which costs more. I am very happy with the quality of them. Enough that I just placed orders for five more board designs!

    One minor nitpick: There was only the small size T-shirt available when I placed my order (I don't fit into a small), and I didn't even receive it. The T-shirt offer is nice, but is really immaterial to my PCB order. However, if your going to offer it (and is a required field on the order form), make sure you include it.

  4. Very happy Customer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2015

    My two layer boards look and work perfect. I was only expecting 12 boards, but got 18, a very nice surprise. Will be back for more! Thanks!

  5. As USUAL great quality, fast service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2014

    Got more than expected, all look and work great. Thanks for the quick turn around. And the Tee-Shirt is appreciated. Thanks for the great deal.
