Circuit Board Cost
There are a number of reasons why the cost of a circuit board might be higher than expected. Perhaps a material or component chosen was in low supply and there was a price increase. Maybe an error went undetected, so it’s back to the drawing board. Or maybe the circuit board is a lot more complex than anticipated and it’s taking longer to design than anticipated. Whatever the reason for a cost surprise, Altium can help decrease the chances for them.
