Hi dear all,
I am doing a development board for a IC with 36 WLCSP package. My PCB layout has 16 via over pads, minimum 0.1mm drill holes, 4-layers. I need to fabricate my PCB. And I could not find a exact pricing for PCBs in the required design quality. I sent sample Gerber file for some PCB manufacturers. And they replied with extreme high prices and can’t afford their pricing (eg: 200$ for 10 boards with 2.5cm * 2.5cm). And most of manufactures are not willing to share their pricing strategy to optimize my design
- My target is to deliver my demo board for the lowest price (to make it lower than 10$, while component cost arround 6.5$. So I need to keep the PCB cost lower than 2$ with the minimum area of 2cm * 2cm. Could I achieve that much lower PCB cost?
- And what are the possible PCB fabricators with lower cost?
- What would be the unit PCB cost if fabricate at least 500 boards?
- Should I I give-up my project?
