Printed Circuit Boards
We make Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) on demand for our students. An order may be submitted only after a PCB Request Form is filled out completely. We reserve the right to turn down any request for a PCB if the request exceeds our size and material limits. (If you are unsure about the size of your PCB ask a staff member to check the size of your PCB before you submit your request).
We will further review each PCB request for gross errors. And, if there are no gross errors found, your PCB will be ready for pick up no later than 5 working days after submission. We will email you and your instructor when we complete your PCB or if your files contain gross errors. We can not and will not guarantee that your PCB will be ready in less than 5 working days, so please plan accordingly!!!
NOTE: the last day for the submittal of a PCB request is the last official scheduled day of the semester.
COSTS: PCBs that are produced for the students enrolled in ECE 3125 & ECE 2110 are done at no cost to the student and are therefore limited to a maximum size of 3" x 3". There is a charge for materials ($2.00 per square inch) for PCBs that are produced for the students enrolled in ECE 4920/4925.
