The cost of PCB is what most customer caring about, and Linked Electronics always receives the question how we calcuate the price.
See below for brief introductions.
1. PCB Board Raw Material
There are FR4, CEM3, Rogers, Aluminum base material for PCB boards. And different thickness, copper thickness will
also affect the price. Some other raw material, soldermask brand will also change the PCB board price at Linked Electronics.
Some customer might request TAIYO soldermask, which will increase the price by 10%.
2. Surface Treatment of PCB Board
HASL Rohs and OSP are the most cost competitive surface treatment. If customer prefer even surface, Linked Electronics will
recommend ENIG or immersion silver. Plated gold is the most expensive choice.
3. PCB Technique
Smallest holes, traces width and space also defines the PCB board price. If the smallest holes is smaller than 0.2mm, and trace
Width and space is smaller than 5mil, the reject ration will be higher.
Also if there is countersink, peelable mask, carbon ink, or impedance control, price also will be different.
4. Inspection Standard
If customer needs IPC-A-600E，Class1 standard, there will be 99% of boards pass the quality control. If following IPC-A-600E，Class3,
about 85% of the boards will pass inspection. This will change the price for the PCB board fabrication at Linked Electronics.
PCB price is really complicated to calculate; different requirements will change the price. Just contact us Linked Electronics, and send us
your RFQs and we will get back to you with PCB price in 2 working hours.
