Manufacturing Specifications

Quantity 3
Layers 2 (or 1, if desired)
Lead Time 5 Business Days. To learn more about how lead time is calculated, read this.
Maximum Board Size Up to 50 square inches per board (for this specific offer). Maximum board dimension is 22.5 inches (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). 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. 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.
Annular Ring Minimum annular ring must be at 0.005” or greater.  Calculate annular ring by subtracting the diameter of the via hole from the diameter of the via pad and dividing by two.
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. 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 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. Copper features, vias, and any other design element 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.
Electrical Test Optional
Other Arrays (Tab Rout, Breakaway Tabs, Mouse Bites, etc), Beveled Edges, Blind/Buried Vias, Castellated Edges, Countersinks/Counterbores, Controlled Impedance, Edge Plating, and Scoring are NOT available with this product option. When required, please request a custom quote here.

  1. I was very pleased with every aspect of this transaction... Outstanding! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2018

    I was impressed by the quick responses I received to questions regarding file requirement, cut-off times, etc. The boards were exactly as specified, very professional job. Great communications.

    I want to add that Luz provided excellent customer service throughout this process.


  2. Best prototype choice on the market 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2018

    Bay Are Circuits nailed with these specials, tremendous quality for the quantities needed. I always do my projects with Bay Area. Excellent overall.


  3. First Time Customer (2 Layer Special) 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2018

    Overall, I'm pleased with my order. The PCBs were made as ordered and four PCBs were received (3 were ordered) an incredible three business days before the projected delivery date! There were two small negatives: only HASL lead finish is available for the 2 Layer Special (my I suggest non-lead!) and there were a few very small solder spots in the solder mask on several boards. The functionality of the board was not affected. I made the print of the solder mask on both sides too small but it came through anyway.


  4. Hex Key Pad CCA 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2018

    Top quality 2 layer board. Silk screen was clear and easy to read. Hole spacing and component mounting locations were dead on. Components soldered into the board easily. The 5 day turn around schedule was met. I received 4 boards for my $102. Well worth the cost.


  5. Good quality and great customer service 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2018

    Bay Area Circuits is a tremendous solution for the industry, offering great quality products at great turn around. I appreciate the communication with your customer service department, they are helpful and mindful. Thank you guys.
