Cheap Pcb Fabrication
Reducing the cost of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and achieving cheap PCB fabrication is really about keeping things simple, effective, and well-designed to achieve your goals. Altium Designer provides an all-inclusive feature set that enables design professionals to handle any design challenge and keep fabrication costs minimized.
Altium Designer leverages innovative design tools that support DFM (Design for Manufacturing) and reduce overall part production cost and minimize the complexity of manufacturing operations by allowing you to define proper component placement, layer stackups, solder mask constraints, even copper distribution, and more. With flexible Design Release Management tools, you have complete control over the release of all critical manufacturing data.
The following tips will aid in reducing manufacturing costs:
Reduce Complexity - create a simple board and review your design to optimize it
Size It Right - using common shapes is a way to reduce the costs of PCBs
Avoid Slots - avoid internal cutouts unless you absolutely must have them to mount the PCB
Pick The Best Vias - through-hole vias are the most affordable where blind and buried will increase your costs
The best way to reduce PCB costs is to spend money on quality design software for schematic and PCB. Take advantage of the free trial today and start designing with Altium!
