Fusion PCB service upgraded, with even lower pricing

Our PCB Service  (Fusion, Propaganda) has been running for more than 2 years, and It brings us great pride to facilitate more innovation around the world. To better assists designers, we will soon announce the revolutionary manufacturing service  Propagate,  we are pretty sure this will become a milestone in open hardware community.

Before we have Propagate, we decided to upgrade our PCB service, in order to make your idea become product easier.

What’s updated to Fusion PCB service:

  1. Maximum PCB size up to 200mm X 200mm
  2. PCB thickness selectable from 0.8mm – 2.0mm
  3. Added option for Lead free /ENIG

Besides the upgrade, we now have improved pricing and more size options.

Here are some of the guidelines for Fusion PCB service:

1 The PCB maximum dimensions for each price bracket are just that, the maximum.  Your PCB design must be smaller than the dimensions of the service you select.

2 Your Gerber file must include only one design. NO PANELIZING, please.

3 The minimum number of PCBs in one order is 10.  If you want to order more than 10, input the higher number and there may be additional price reduction for ordering a larger quantity of the same design. Please check the different quantity option before placing the order.


Estimate shipping time:

If the file and design meets requirements, they will be processed and shipped in 4-6 days (Excluding the Chinese Festival).

    Is it possible to add the option to choose the copper thickness as well? (standard values such as; 17.5um, 35um and 70um)

    Thicker the copper, the clearance width will increase. :)

    Will look into the possibility. but the copper thickness option is a little more complex than the color. Its cost is also depended on the PCB size.

  3. @48X24X48X
    Will look into the different quantity option. For small size, the cost for 5 pcs and for 10 pcs are same because of the setup fee. But for big size, there will be a ‘big’ price difference.

  5. It would be great to see an option for TG170 material. Else it would be useless even if the board is RoHS as it can’t go into lead free reflow process.

  6. I would love to see less quantities! These are perfect for prototypes, and 10 pieces is a bit too much in most of the cases. 3-5 pieces would be perfect and more environment friendly. :)

    Actually, the cost for 55x75mm is same with 10x10cm. Why? That is because fab houses here really hate doing short runs. There are always some setup fees associated with every PCB order. If the actual cost is below the setup fee, they charge the setup fee only. Wish my answer make sense.

  8. Given the popularity of Arduino clones and accessories, it would be really nice if there was a special option for boards that were arduino sized (55x75mm or so.) (although to be fair, the new pricing structure pretty much puts the 10x10cm boards at the price where that would have been, so maybe it doesn’t matter. It’s just annoying to “waste” that extra space.)

  9. The dielectric constant and loss tangent measure some properties of the FR4 that are useful when designing circuit boards at high frequencies.

    The dielectric constant measures how much energy is stored in the dielectric by an applied voltage.
    This might be somewhere between 3.5 to 5 for FR-4.

    The loss tangent describes how lossy the material is.
    (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Loss_tangent)

    At lower frequencies, this doesn’t matter very much. At higher frequencies, you want to be able to do things like match the impedance of your traces to other parts of your circuit or test equipment.

    You can start to do really neat things like make filters by varying trace impedance (widths) if you know the dielectric constant.
    (http://www.ittc.ku.edu/~jstiles/723/handouts/section_8_6_Stepped_Impedance_Low_Pass_Filters_package.pdf)

    For $10/10 boards, I’m not expecting any impedance control. I was just wondering if an approximate value was known so I could experiment with simple microstrip circuits.

  10. Are (approximate) the dielectric constant and loss tangent of the FR-4 known?

    (Even if not, I’ll still use Fusion PCB for some of my circuit boards. Everything I’ve manufactured has turned out fine.)
