Product Description

Allowing up to 4 uploads, the Golden Gate Special is ideal for those with multiple 2-layer printed circuit board designs. This is also the only web special that Bay Area Circuits offers with the option to choose from 6 different soldermask colors, and allows customers to take advantage of a full 18”x24” panel, which is up to 352 square inches.

Upload your design(s) and leave a note in the Instructions field to let us know what quantity you want of each design. We’ll be sure to contact you with any questions, if necessary.

Need help figuring out how many PCBs will fit on an 18" x 24" panel? Our Panelizer Tool can help you estimate how many boards will fit on a panel, including multiple parts with different sizes. The exact quantity you will receive may vary and cannot be guaranteed due to manufacturing yields and other unforeseen contributing factors.

Manufacturing Specifications

Quantity As many boards as fit within allotted space (352 square inches).
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 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, Matte Green, Blue, Black, Red or White. Top and Bottom
Silkscreen Color = White (Black will be used if White soldermask is selected) 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. 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 Optional
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. Perfect when you need many small designs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2017

    I combined 3 designs on this order and got a large quantity of each of them. Great quality as always with BAC. Looking forward to do business again.


  2. Good quality, lots of boards, quick 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Aug 2017

    We needed three different designs at an affordable price. This deal was a good fit for us. For $300 we got about 15 of each design (will depend on your board sizes of course). Black soldermask looks good. Turn time was quicker than expected and quality was good too.


  3. GREAT PRODUCT. WOULD PURCHASE AGAIN 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017
