PCB manufacturing and assembly service is online
Bare boards to complex multi-layer assemblies can be produced within 48 hours, says OKdo, as it introduces its online PCB manufacturing service.
The rapid PCB manufacturing and assembly service is for OEMs and professional design engineers to makers and hobbyists. It has been established in partnership with international PCB manufacturer Ocean Smile. The OKdo service offers a 48-hour build time and fast delivery on everything from one-off prototype boards to bulk quantities of complex, tested assemblies.
The OKdo rapid PCB production service supports both bare and assembled PCBs with up to 12 layers. Board sizes are available from 2.0 x 2.0mm up to 540 x 540mm, with thicknesses from 0.6 to 2.0mm. Track widths are offered down to 0.1mm, with BGA pad sizes down to 0.25mm, 0.2mm drills, 35 micron copper outer layers and 17.5 micron copper inner layers. PCB materials include FR4, aluminium and flexible, and surface finishing options include leaded or lead-free HASL (hot air solder levelling) and ENIG (electroless nickel/immersion gold).
Two-sided solder masks are available as standard, with colour options including green, red, yellow, blue, white, and black at zero increment in price. E-test and design rule checks (DRC) within 24 hours are included in the standard service.
The ordering procedure is straightforward with a live online quote tool which gives a price for each order in real time. The customer then uploads the Gerber production data and pays via a choice of popular secure payment methods. Within a few hours, the order is put into production and packaging and delivery is arranged according to customer instructions.
Richard Curtin, senior vice president of Product & Digital at OKdo, said: “We understand how important PCB manufacturing services are for our global design customers, and we are delighted to expand our design services in partnership with Ocean Smile, who offer a range of PCB manufacturing options from rapid prototyping to volume production services. Our mission is to enable our global design and developer customers with the products and services needed to optimise the design cycle and improve speed to market.”
