PRICE TABLES -- Standard Spec vs. Custom Spec: Whats the Difference?
Deciding whether you need to order your printed circuit board as a Standard Spec or as a Custom Spec board is simply a matter of looking at the specs.
Standard Spec boards are built to the same standards as Custom Spec orders but with a more limited spec range.
Standard Spec and Custom Spec orders are inspected to IPC Class II Standards.
Quantity doesnt matter.
We will make as few as one pcb as either a Standard Spec or Custom Spec order.
No order is too small for us!
Quality is the same.
All Standard Spec and Custom orders go through the same rigorous fabrication and quality check process.
Turnaround time is the same. We can produce your Custom Spec order just as quickly as our Standard Specs orders even creating them in one day if needed.
Standard Specs include:
All holes plated through (PTH) for all hole sizes in the drill program
Non-plated slots and cutouts (plated available on Custom Spec orders)

Overall thickness .031 .062, .093, or .125
Trace/Space to 5/5 mils
Lead-Free HAL Solder plating finish
Rout Tolerance +/- 0.010
Hole Tolerance +/- 0.005
Fiducials and/or Tooling Holes
Custom Specs include:
Plated or Non-plated holes (if no specifications provided holes will be plated)
Non-plated or plated slots/edges and cutout's
Various laminates including high temp (tg) FR4
Full range of finished board thicknesses
Different soldermask colors (default green)
Different silkscreen (legend) colors (default white)
Trace/Space down to 4/4 mils
UL Markings (Also 94V-O upon request)
Lead-Free logo markings on boards (upon request)
Controlled Dielectric and/or Controlled Impedance
Inner layer Cu. Wt. ½ oz. 3 oz.
Fiducials and/or Tooling Holes (no additional charge if requested)
Hole Tolerance +/- 0.003 (if requested)
Electrolytic Hard Gold plating finish (total board or gold fingers only) and other plating finishes to include ENIG, Soft Bondable Gold, Nickel, Immersion Silver, and OSP. Also HAL available in both leaded and lead-free solder finishes.
1. We never charge Tooling NRE on Standard Spec orders. In addition, when you re-order your Standard Spec with no changes and go to Custom Spec we waive the tooling charge again.
2. You pay Electrical Test charges only once. If you pay as a Standard Spec you dont pay again
even for a fixture when going to Custom Spec.
