Calculation of multi-panels

 

Multiup           

Multiup, all boards <1 dm²


Required minimum area is 1 dm². If your PCBs are all smaller than 1 dm² we will automatically fill this area with as many boards as possible.

For a routing charge we will rout your boards singly. Please provide only one common contour if your boards should not be separated!

Alternatively a contour can be provided to the boards on pips and for a cam fee we will implement the routing path with pips. In these cases all charges (solder, pips etc.) will only be charged once.

 

 

 

Multiup

Combined multiup with boards <1 dm² and boards >1 dm²

If the multi - up consists of boards <1 dm² and boards >1 dm² they will be manufactured and charged seperately:

Each board from any order which is >1 dm² will be charged a mask fee, all combined boards <1 dm² will be charged mask fee and one routing fee.

Important:

Using drills to pre-separate your multiup is not allowed, a routing contour with pips must be used instead.

 

Rout charges

Cutout

Internal cut-outs with a diameter or length greater than or equal to 6 mm.

small boards

Boards <1dm² to be routed as single.


 

Routing

Routing through drill

Design rules:

Almost any shape can be created by routing, however a few basic rules must be observed:

PCB-POOL® uses two types of routing bits: 1.0 mm and 2.0 mm.
All copper structures on the board must be 0.3 mm clear of the routing contour.
Plated drills on the edge of the PCB, which will be bisected by the contour line, must have a minimum diameter of 2.0 mm and have a remaining radius of 1.0 mm after routing (Fig. 1).
Outer contours can shape any angle while inner cutouts will produce at least the radius of the routing bit.
Production tolerance is +/- 0,1 mm (4mil).

Minimum Slotsizes

Routlength 1 mm

(A)

Minimum Slotsize:

1 mm x 2,5 mm (40 mil x 100 mil). The gap between start- and endpoint must be 0,5 mm (20 mil).

Routlength 2mm

(B)

Minimum Slotsize:

2 mm x 5 mm (80 mil x 200 mil) The gap between start-and endpoint must be 1 mm (40 mil).

Routing boards on pips

Rout on pips

PCB-POOL® can rout your boards on a multipanel, held together by break-off pips. The boards are easy to separate manually, e.g. after reflow soldering. The pips are 1.0 mm in width and the minimum gap between each board on the multipanel is 2.0 mm.

Please note that there is an extra charge of € 31,45 ex VAT for this service. Even if the multi-panel contour is provided with the layout files, the routing program still has to be created and manually customized by our Cam departement.

Routing board on pips < 20 mm x 20 mm

Routing boards on pips < 20 mm x 20 mm

For reasons of quality assurance, we will rout boards ≤ 20 mm x 20 mm on a frame.

No additional charge (rout on pips) will be applied.

Routing directions

Rout directions
The exact outer margin of the rout contour is defined by the middle of the trace used to designate the board edge; the radius of the routing bit will be adjusted to compensate.


 

Drilling tolerances

Drills can generaly be catagorized as:
- Mounting holes (for fixing of PCB)
- Via (produce electrical contact between component and solderside or different layers of PCB)
- Component hole


Our smallest drill diameter in PCB-POOL® is 0,2 mm (8 mil), the largest drill diameter 6,0 mm.
All drill diameters > 6,0 mm (248 mil) count as rout contour!
Pips (used to hold PCBs in a panel) can be created with a diameter < 1 mm (40 mil)
 




     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Important:

    Non plated trough holes have to be exposed 0,5 mm from the copper (copper planes or tracks).

    Tolerances

    Ø/mm Ø/mil Tolerance/mm Tolerance/mil pth/npth
     0,2 - 0,6    8 -24  0,1  4  Plated
     0,6 - 2,0   24 - 79   0,1  4  Plated

     0,6 - 6,3    24 - 248  0,1  4  NonPlated
     > 6,3   > 248  0,2  8  NonPlated
    Double drills

    Overlapping drills cannot be produced dimensionally stable.

    If there are slots required, create as a rout contour.

    Positioning of UL quality mark

    Please inform us when placing your order if a UL quality mark is required on your PCBs.

    Please clearly indicate the area where you wish to have the UL  logo positioned. The perimeter for the quality mark must be 13 mm x 9 mm , this border line will be deleted by the CAM engineer prior to production. The UL-quality mark will be added to the silkscreen (if requested) or soldermask layer. Placement of the UL logo on the copper layer is possible, but only when specifically requested by the customer.

    Extract from the Sprint Layout 5.0 Tutorial
    Sprint-Layout supports 7 different layers. A layer can be thought of as a transparent film. You can create several layers one above the other (visible) and thus consider the same layer.
    ...
    The top and bottom of the board each have two separate layers. One for the actual layout and an extra for an optional silkscreen. The colors of each layer can be freely defined.


    When designing your layout, please note the following points:

    The board side 1 is the top of the board.
    The board side 2 is the bottom of the board.
    You develop your layout easy perusal, as if you had a board made ​​of glass.
    Note that the components and text on the bottom of boardside 2 must be mirrored (sprint layout makes it a rule automatically for you).

    PCB assembly

    Instructions

    Please send us 20% more (and a minimum of ten more) in the case of passive components of size 0603 or larger, and 100% more (and a minimum of 20 more) components of size 0402. The excess amount must be in the same section as the components that are actually required. In the case of active components, the excess amount depends on their type of housing and the unit price of the component. Ideally we would like to have at least one or two extra components.

    Amount:

    Prototype and small series, 1 to 50 pieces

    Larger quantities available on request.

    PCB dimensions:

     

    PCBs whose edges (one side) are ≤ 20 mm will be processed and delivered in an assembly panel (PCB holder) for reasons of quality assurance. There is no additional cost for this, and prices are inclusive of ridge milling.
    If you wish to order PCBs in your own assembly panel, this panel will not be cut into separate sections.
    Maximum: 340 mm x 240 mm

     

    Components:

    SMD and THT

    from size 0402 and up

    SOIC, PLCC, TSOP, QFP, BGA

    Assembly method:

    single-and double-sided

    SMD (soldered by Vapour Phase Reflow Soldering machine)

    THT (soldered manually or by Selective Soldering machine)

    Component packaging:

    Tape strip

    Sticks

    Reels

    Bulk material

    (please request only in exceptional cases and only when a maximum of 2 PCBs are being assembled)

    Maximum component size: 55 mm x 55 mm x 15 mm
    Fine Pitch from 0,4 mm
    Minimum Pin width 0,2 mm

    Solder:

    Leadfree and conforming to DIN 32513, ISO, EN 29454, IPC 650

    File formats:

    At present: EAGLE, TARGET3001!, Altium Designer and Extended Gerber, please enquire about other formats.

    Delivery time:

    10 working days starting from the day on which all the components required for assembly arrive or 14 working days for the assembly of 1000 or more components

    Tip:

    For technical reasons, the PCBs will be assembled on one panel. Identical PCBs that do not require assembly will therefore be delivered in the same panel.

    Please send us 20% more (and a minimum of ten more) in the case of passive components of size 0603 or larger, and 100% more (and a minimum of 20 more) components of size 0402. The excess amount must be in the same section as the components that are actually required. In the case of active components, the excess amount depends on their type of housing and the unit price of the component. Ideally we would like to have at least one or two extra components.

    If a component should not fit the planned footprint, or if it cannot be assembled for any other reason, please note that we will have to complete your assembly order without this component.

    We regret that we can only accept distributors who are able to order online (shopping basket). We can only take payment in EUROs and do not accept credit cards.

    We wanted to make PCBs affordable for Hobbyists, Students, Semi-professionals, Spark-funners and others, so we created an extreme simple Pool with only one type of PCB and only one delivery time. A strict “no frills” policy with no telephone lines, only one language on the website, no brochures and standard shipping packages, keeping the costs down! The graph shows the price of the Jackaltac PCB and the prices of our competitors. Shipping prices are additional costs. For the shipping costs of our competition, please refer to their respective websites.

     

    Why does a single sided PCB cost the same as a double sided?

    We put the single sided PCB orders on the same Pool with the double sided ones. More orders in one Pool lowers the price. You will have copper only on one side, but your holes will be plated through.

     

    Why is “with soldermask” and “without soldermask” the same price?

    Because we put both technologies in the same Pool. If you do not have a soldermask layer or you do not want soldermask, your PCB will be manufactured in the same Pool and the soldermask will be washed out during the development process just like the areas free of soldermask on a standard PCB. Once again the reason is to lower the price for you.

     

    Why does “without silkscreen” not save me money?

    All PCB orders without silkscreen end up in the same Pool as the ones ordered with silkscreen. They will just be excluded when it comes to the application of ink. The reason? Right: Moneysaving!

     

    What is the minimum and the maximum size I can order?

    You can order PCBs in a minimum size of 50 x50 mm up to a maximum of 350 mm x 350 mm.

     

    My PCB is smaller than 50 x 50 mm!

    Jackaltac offers no routing flatrates, no routing on pips, no scoring and no miniature PCBs, where a lot of manual work is involved. If you need these specialties, please refer to the competition listed above or use your jigsaw ;-)  

     

    Why can’t I order more than 5 pieces?

    Normally Hobbyists don’t produce in series ;-) Jackaltac is a source for prototypes. We might offer larger quantities later.
