Simply select the desired quantity and the board dimensions, in square inches, to get started. (Example: a board with dimensions 2" x 2" equaling 4" square inches would select the "0-9" option.)
Please note that your 2 Layer PCB must meet the manufacturing specifications as outlined below.
Not finding what you're looking for? We'll generate a custom quote for you. Click here to get started!
|Quantity||Customer Specified. Larger quantities are quoted here.|
|Layers||2 (or 1, if desired)|
|Lead Time||2 Business Days with an option to expedite to 1 Business Day (1 Day 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 Silver, or Immersion Gold (ENIG). 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.|
|Hole Sizes & Quantity||All hole sizes between and including 0.010” and 0.247” are available, up to tolerance. Non-plated holes may be any size. Limit number of holes to less than 50 per square inch.|
|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||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||All boards can survive standard reflow, while RoHS compliant boards are able to survive RoHS reflow. The maximum operating temperature is 125 degrees C.|
|Other||Controlled Impedance, Blind/Buried Vias, Countersinks/Counterbores, Arrays, Scoring, and Beveled Edges are NOT available with this product option. When required, please request a custom quote here.|
|Design Rules||Our standard design rules and standards assist PCB Designers with configuring basic design rule checks. Available Here|
|DFM Report||Upload your PCB design files and receive an instant Design for Manufacturability (DFM) report. Our free, automated tool identifies possible production issues prior to manufacturing. Available Here|

If you needs to get your boards as soon as humanly possible you will not be disappointed. The employees will go out of their way to make sure that you get what you need, but they will also make sure that you are not overcharged unnecessarily.

Bay Area Circuits Meets These Criteria:
1. Made in USA
2. Willing to sign NDA
3. BAC ships extras (if any) and doesn't keep any of your boards
(#3 is important if you care about #2)
4. No gold on the pads
5. Slots are plated
6. Experienced staff answers questions and detects errors
7. Solder mask withstands heat abrasion
8. Board edges are routed
9. Fast turnaround
10. Reasonable price
11. Points system exists to save even more money
12. Beautiful web site

I just can't stop looking at it. It looks amazing. I've designed boards for work, but this was the first one I did for myself. Having amazing quality PCBs makes my own project look way more professional. The finish on both sides was really clean and I wasted no time soldering all the components. I couldn't be more happy and I'm looking forward to my next order that is already in the queue.
The boards were done in 3 days which was sweet, but the cherry on top was two extra boards at no charge. Now I can make twice as many! Thanks!

Feedback was great! They caught a small issue and emailed me right away.
Got the boards quickly and they were very well done! Even came with E-test cert!
My go-to house now.

I'm extremely impressed with Bay Area Circuits price and turnaround on these boards. The process is truly no-touch, so just be sure to check your gerbers carefully before submitting.
