The submission of the PCB design to PCBWay is so easy, clicking on PCB Instant Quote (on main navigation menu) opens a window where we can set our PCB specification:

PCBWay specification section

As shown above there’re many options, for example:

  • Up to 14 layers,
  • PCB material: FR-4 (FR: Flame Retardant), Aluminum …
  • Thickness,

PCBWay can also make advanced PCBs which are high quality PCBs and they are recommended for industrial equipments, instrumentation, automotive electronics, communication equipments, etc.

As an addition to PCB fabrication, PCBWay provides PCB assembly services, clicking on Get Assembly Quote opens a window as shown below:
