Hi all,

I've been using olimex in bulgaria to make my 2 layer pcbs, and I've been very happy with the service and cost. Especially the cost.

I'm thinking of doing a four layer pcb; can anyone suggest a pcb house that might do a similar one-off pcb service for four layers?

I'm based in the UK.

Thanks in advance,

Mike.

Hello Mike,

I use PCBtrain, http://www.pcbtrain.co.uk for my prototype PCBs and they have a good service. Have only had them make 2 layer PCBs thus far though.

A 3U (160x100mm) PCB would cost £90+VAT on a 15 day lead time. They have an online quote tool.

I plan to try Top-Tec PCB http://www.top-tec-pcb.com/eng/index_.html for my next board as they are slightly better on pricing for quantity orders. Just priced the same 160x100 PCB with them, costs £91+VAT.

Hope this helps,

Ian

Thanks Ian.

Is that £90 for a four layer board? Not bad if it is.

Mike.

Mike,

£90 + £10 P&P + VAT, total is therefore £117.50 for one 4 layer PCB.

Obviously if PCB is smaller than 3U card it is cheaper.

I'm hoping to get 4 PCBs out of that, so 117.50 is reasonable, for a prototype.

Thanks Ian.

Mike
