http://smart-prototyping.com/PCB-Prototyping.html – another cheap Chinese PCB Manufacturer review
- 2 layers
- 10cm x 10 cm
- 10 pieces
- PCB Thickness: 1.6mm
- Copper thickness: double – 2oz/ft2 = 70um
- Surface finish: HASA
- Solder mask color: Green (additional fees for other colors)
- No sub-boards
- 100% E-Test
- Stencil – frameless 13cm x 21cm
As always – sent gerber wiles created with Eagle.
I had to really pay extra for double copper (which was essential to my project). $46.36 for the boards and the stencil.
Shipping costs are nearly the same as for Shenzen2U (see http://blog.peku33.net/shenzen2u-pcb-prototyping-review/). However for the same price I got tracking – parcel was delivered using Swiss Post.
- Double sided PCB, soldermask on both sides
- Probably unlimited drills
- Probably unlimited miling
- Silkscreen on both sides (I used only top)
The only accept PayPal payments.
24.09.2015 – Order placed, Pending
25.09.2015 – „Processing”
30.09.2015 – „Shipped”. I also received link to Google Plus photos of my order.
19.10.2015 – Delivered
So 25 days = 4 weeks from placing order to delivery.
However there was a Chinese new year during that period – that also must be taken into account.
What I received:
I received quite large box.
Boards were packed in vacuum bubble wrap, stencil was wrapped in normal + bubble wrap.
Box was a little bit smashed, but nothing happened to boards or stencil.
After optical inspection – boards looks okay. So there is nothing to argue about. Silkscreen is a little bit misplaced (the same as with Shenzen2U), copper and soldermask quality is good.
Stencil has an interesting thing – holes have another shape than on project. Take a look at photos.
Not yet. Waiting for some parts to arrive.
To be done after assembly
