The following is a user-submitted list of PCB manufacturers. Your results may vary.

Contents

UltimatePCB

Best prices around for >2 layer boards. 4-layer boards up to 30 sq in. with 7/7 are $210 for 5, including shipping. Turn time is about 10 days including DHL from China. Service is not as fast as bigger outfits like Advanced Circuits, but still fine.

BatchPCB

2.50 / square inch + $10 setup, must use your own software to generate Gerber files. Easy-to-use web ordering interface, but slow turnaround time -- 10-20 days. Boards come out very nice -- precut, double-sided with silk screen and solder mask on both side.

Advanced Circuits

Good online design rule checking, easy web ordering interface, and small standard trace/space tolerances. Students can order single PCB's for $33 each.

Olimex

Bulgarian PCB manufacturer - $33 for a 6.3" by 3.9" board. I.E. cheaper than BatchPCB, but with a minimum board size requirement, silkscreen on one side only, and a more complicated ordering process.

PCB123

Offers their own free (proprietary) schematic and PCB layout software -- easy to use, but you are locked into using their service. Integration with ordering system simplifies the process of ordering boards.

PCBFABEXPRESS

5 Boards for $60 ($12 ea. for 10 sq. inches) with a 5 day turn time. Good quality work, but turn times can be delayed if you have to correct any issues that don't meet their specs.

AP Circuits

2 layer PCB's with next day shipping for under $50. Online quote system and instructions for creating Gerber output from most popular PCB programs.

E-TekNet

4 2 layer boards for $18.99 each. Great prices for production board runs. Helpful staff.

ExpressPCB

Similar to PCB123, in that they have free propietary schematic and layout software, but their Mini-Board service (3 identical boards, 2.5" X 3.8", no silkscreen) is priced well at $51 total, which includes shipping. If you need small boards quickly, this is a good choice, since they ship the next business day.

PCBCART

Fast turnaround (~8days + shipping), instant online quotes. $30 tooling fee, under $2/sq in.

Speedy PCB Prototype

No minimum order, easy to get a quote, $9.9 for protos, no extra charge for soldermask, silkscreen, E-testing, very low price on 2, 4, 6 layers.

YongXinYaPCB
