Barebones PCBs are ideal prototype boards. 

Barebone PCB (Prototype PCB)

They are our most basic printed circuit boards available and are great for testing out your designs without spending a ton of money. These prototype boards are best for using with a hot soldering iron and lots of solder!

These prototype boards come with FR-4 fiberglass (the all-natural yellow color), copper traces, and plated holes with just a little bit of tin over the copper.

When calculating the price, select one size larger than your required board dimensions.

Manufacturing Specifications

Quantity Customer Specified. Larger quantities are quoted here.
Layers 2 (or 1, if desired)
Lead Time 1 Business Day. 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 1 inch. Total board area must be greater than 1 square inch (i.e. smallest square board allowed is 1 x 1 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 None
Silkscreen None
Surface Finish Tin (over 1Oz Cu). Learn more about Surface Finishes.
Soldermask Pad Tolerance N/A
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. 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.
Electrical Test Not Available.
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.

  1. Very Satisfied 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    Thank you so much for an amazing product! It was everything I could have asked for. The quality is as was hoped for and the turnaround was quick. The design for manufacturability tool was very nice. Highly recommend this product and this company.


  2. Great Prototype PCBs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2017

    We really like the quality of these Barebones PCBs they allow us to quickly prototype our hardware. The turn around time is great usually less than a week to our door!


  3. i wish i discovered this before 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2017

    really good quality, fast and efficient service.



  4. This is the Rulebreaker! Fast, Cheap and Good! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Mar 2017

    I've always said you can't have Fast, Cheap and Good you can only chose 2 of the 3. Well this breaks all the rules. These boards are great for our prototypes and they're cost effective and they are solid quality. Best of all they were less than 5 day turn around! That's Fast! I've used BAC's barebones PCBs few times now for our prototypes already and will continue to do so.

    If you're looking for a cost effective way to make a small run of prototypes I'd suggest giving these guys a try! Also their support is pretty awesome as well!


  5. Fast turnaround; great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jan 2017

    Very fast turn; sent more boards than I had actually ordered; always very high quality; reasonable price...what's not to love!
