How Printed Circuit Boards Are Made

djcatnip Re:How It's Made (88 comments)

You kids with your cheap Chinese labor... GET OFF MY LAWN!

I thought that was the case with advanced circuits before I started working with them, but... nope. All work done in the USA. I know you're generally stating a good point about the world, but... I thought it would be good to point this out. There are some PCB houses out there that do in fact have the work done in China, but not Advanced Circuits. I was really impressed with how cheap 60 square inches of PCB was. And one more point of clarification... if you're designing boards with a package like Eagle CAD or whatever (basically anything that isn't the software they give you for free to design boards) you can get some basic outline routing done without running outside their inexpensive $33 each product. It's pretty awesome. I don't do a lot of boards, and i have no formal training, but I have run half a dozen orders through them and have been really happy with the quality every time. Even moreso now that I can get my boards routed to the outline I need to fit my project cases.
