Abstract: With the development of modern technology, PCBs are widely used; and with the cost down of electronic equipment, everyone wants cheaper and cheaper prices. The heavy cost pressure can also be felt in the PCB industry. Of course when making the PCB boards, we can find a lot of ways to reduce the cost, like changing the base material, changing the material of solder mask... By using all these methods, the prices of printed circuit boards can be reduced by 10% to 50%. But there is no "free lunch". The reduced cost of PCBs may come at the expense of the increasing the cost of assembling PCB, reduc ing the long-term reliability of the equipment.So it may increase the final cost of the equipment.
With our increased business in North America, a lot of customers ask us how to reduce the cost of their PCBs. In order to help our customers to know the PCBs better and give some guidelines on reducing the cost of PCBs, we will introduce the propriety of different PCB materials and important prosperity index of them. In this tech report and we also give some detailed information on the cost of PCBs. This tech report is written by the tech center of Gold Phoenix in China and its North America Service team, we hope this report can answer some questions of our customers.
