|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 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). 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.|
|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. 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 (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.|

Pleasantly surprised by excellent user experience. Delivered on time as advertised. Superior quality. Perfect outcome of moderately complex 2-sided board project of mixed through-hole and surface-mount components. Finished assembly worked exactly as intended on first try with zero issues. Instant DFM report is a great tool which helped completely avoid errors. Highly recommended and look forward to using again for future experimental design projects.

As a first-time designer, I was frankly nervous about the whole process. I chose Bay Area Circuits most based upon the positive reviews by existing customers, so I am here to ratify that consensus and add my name to the list of totally satisfied customers. The boards came back clean, they look 100% professional, and they work great. Thanks to you, my first adventure in PCB design and fabrication has been a successful experience. I appreciate your fine work on this.

Been working with BAC for a year now, and very pleased with the board quality and service. Each time I order 3 for $90 deal and get 4 boards, so makes it even better!

Sometimes you need just that - 3 boards, 2 layers.
There is no one better here than Bay Area guys.
Other shop, which I used for 10 years certainly loosing.

The board quality was perfect. Way better than I expected for a prototype. But they also delivered *ahead* of schedule and they did *additional* routing that I thought I would have to do myself. They spent time discussing a problem with my Gerbers (sorry) and kept me updated as the boards were made. Very happy with the service.
