Prototype PCB Fabrication
PCB prototyping is the initial stage of any PCB Project development cycle. A manufacturer fabricates the board based on the given requirement to serve the end application in a best possible way without any design flaw. These PCB prototypes are evaluated and tested before the final large quantity order is given. Approval of the primary PCB design is very important and manufacturers & design engineers use various testing techniques to identify the design flaws in the PCB prototype. Prototype PCB orders can vary between 1 and 100 pcs. And since a large quantity is not required, the equipment required to develop prototype boards is different from that used to fabricate large quantities of PCBs. As a result of this not all manufacturers fabricate prototype boards. There are some companies that only fabricate prototype boards, those that do only product quantities and there are some that do both.
On this page, PCB Directory has listed PCB fabrication companies that manufacturer prototype PCB boards in small quantities. Users can narrow down on the list of companies based on their location and capabilities.
