Hi Rainer! >> Maybe after I got some of my costs back from having this PCB >> manufactured. :) (I will have 10 boards made at the first proto run.) >> But you can have a look at www.gideonz.dds.nl for the picture of the >> layout so you have an idea what it looks like. > >Just for curiosity - what do you pay per dm^2 for that multilayer board? >One of the cheapest manufacturers for 4-layer PCBs I found so far are >MVPCB (www.mvpcb.de) and PCB Pool - but these still charge around 100EUR >per dm^2 for smaller quantities. 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.) Gideon Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
