Hi Rainer!

When I have 10 boards made, I pay EUR 17,70 per dm^2 per board. This is
including bare board electical testing, but without VAT. Fewer boards
are actally more expensive. First I thought of having 5 boards made, but
10 is actually cheaper!! So 10 boards it is!

You can go to the online calculator if you wish:
www.eurocircuits.com. As a matter of fact, I don't have any experience
with this company yet, but the 'specs' are good: The smallest holesize
they support is 0.35 mm, with 0.15 mm trace widths and clearance.
Unfortunately they do not give the possiblity for galvanic gold (or
silver) plating, which I actually need for my PCI connector. Do you have
a suggestion to this problem? (I will just accept a non-plated PCB for
now, since it is a prototype anyway.)
