Draw PCB artwork using Protel if required (per hour, quoted) $80.00/hr
Generate laser negative from Protel file $20.00 Single sided, $40.00 Double sided.
Organise negative film from paper artwork $60.00
PCB Base Costs:
For A4 sheet size or less, per sheet. This covers physical handling of board process steps (single or double sided). $25.00
PCB Area Costs:
A PCB is defined as all circuit space used on a sheet, and this covers the PCB material, solder and chemical costs.
Single sided (per cm²) 8c
Double sided (per cm²) 12c
There is no fixed cost for drilling, as it is not an automatic operation. The cost is 5 cents per hole, which covers labour and the loss of drill bits. If your PCB uses only SMT, there is no drilling cost. Each change to a new drill size involves re-alignment, and costs $2.30 over the whole job.
Combine as much artwork as you can onto an A4 negative. This automatically reduces the base costs. If you require us to make up a sheet by doing multiple UV exposures of supplied negatives, each additional exposure will cost $3.50.
For runs using multiple A4 pages or equivalent sheets, we will discount the base costs as well.
3-5 sheets base costs less 15%
6-7 sheets base costs less 25%
8+ sheets base costs less 35%
If we receive your negative or file in the morning, urgent prototype boards can be despatched same day. Add one day for external negative generation. Larger PCB runs may take up to 5 working days.
Conditions of supply:
Prices do not include GST, and are for standard 1oz single or double-sided 1.6mm fibreglass board. We will give your job the prompt attention prototype PCBs deserve. Please make sure that your monthly account with us is "current", or we will simply not start on new work.
Guidelines for PCB layout:

PCB Material - FR4 epoxy glass, 1.6mm thick and 1oz/sq.ft copper (other types available).
Non-prototype (production) PCBs
Our PCB service is for fast turnaround prototypes and small runs. We do not offer mask, component overlay or PTH. Once a design is completed or is being produced in sufficient quantites, we can assist in the transfer of the PCB work to an Auckland supplier.
