PCB Prototyping
Are you new to PCB prototyping?
Even if you are new to getting PCB prototypes manufactured, you are certainly not new to us. We are proud that hundreds of students, hobbyists, and PCB designers get their first PCB prototypes made from us. And once they try us, they keep coming back!

We suggest you do the following to get started with us.
1
Read this article from Nuts & Volts magazine: 'Read this article (pdf)'.
2
Glance through our glossary of PCB terms. Also see the Wikipedia article on PCBs
3
Carefully read our FAQ. It will tell you who we are, what we provide, and what are the dos and don'ts for ordering on our site.

Finally, you will have to send us your design files. You can use programs like ORCAD, Valor, Accel/Tango/PCAD, Protel, or even free programs like Eagle to design your PCB prototypes. Remember to send us gerber files in the Extended Gerber format (Gerber 274 X).
