The following page will appear, Enter the PCB specifications such as material (FR-4, Aluminium, High frequency, etc.), order type (single, Panel), solder mask color (green, red, black, yellow, blue), silk screen color (red, black, green, blue, yellow)
Next enter the PCB process information as per the below information.
Finally, give instructions to be followed for the PCB fabrication such as PTH copper thickness, stack up details, Blind and buried vias, etc.
Then enter the shipping details of the country and click on quote now. The ALLPCB backend software calculates the price for the given specifications and displays the PCB cost as shown below.
Why choose ALLPCB?
They are capable to handle wide range of order requirements corresponding to manufacturing, fabrication and production. Here is the list of services they offer.
