I see they do PCB Assembly too
Setup cost is just one part... I would estimate approx. $130 (if they're matching other China PCB manufacs out there). soldering fee (for total TH pad, or SMD part) Package material feeInitial/Setup feeProgramming Fee. If you want them to buy the parts (i.e. you're not shipping them your own parts), there'sParts Cost10% Purchase & Exhaust cost (of your total Parts Cost)+ shipping back to you.
That looks nice. What CAD package did you use? I am going to have to teach myself a CAD package because I am getting mighty tired of soldering wires on pad-per-hole boards, which is how I do it now. If turnaround is 7 days on these things, I think I am going to do a project that I am planning in a month on a professional board like this.I don't see a way to automatically send them the Gerbers and make an order on their site. A lot of shops have completely automated systems these days.
After seeing this I thought I'd email Sitopway for a quote.Just received it and they quoted me 50USD for 10pcs 100mm x 100mm dual layer, red soldermask, top/bottom silkscreen on 16mm FR4.That's 20USD more than Elecrow, so looks like I'll be sticking with them.The OP said 5.2GBP for 130mm x 140mm, so I wonder if that was just per single PCB, ie 10 pcs was 52GBP? That would make more sense at about 80-90USD for 10 pcs 130mm x 140mm, based on what they have quoted me.
I'll probablly give Sitopway a try too. Digging around their website, I see they do PCB Assembly too (which PCBCart doesn't). And with small minimum orders too! Yeah, PCBCart is a no-go for first prototype run, but for bulk orders of a proven design, it's great. Another good company (based in Canada), but PCB manufacturing/assembly done with their partner in China, is Myro.ca Prices just a tad bit higher than PCBCart, but quality seems also better.... I *love* their gold plated pads option (but unfortunately, they don't do large areas of gold, like card edge fingers).
