PCB Manufacturing

PCB and Stencil Manufacturing within the ITLP capabilities include CNC machining and acid tank etching.

All PCB’s are manufactured using FR4 substrate, purchased by the ITLP; if you have alternate substrate requests they will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Layer Count 1-2 -
Materials FR-4 FR-4/Rogers/Polymide
Board Thickness 0.059" -
Copper Weight 1 Oz 1/2 Oz
Trace / Clearance 12/12 Mils 4/4 Mils
Finish Bare Bones Green Solder Mask & Lead Free Tinning
Minimum Hole Size 0.6 mm 0.4 mm

For PCB Fabrication Requests, please follow these steps:

Step 1:

Schedule a meeting with an ITLP Engineer to discuss your ideas and designs. If you have a preliminary design, schematic, or prototyped circuit; have that available with you during this meeting. This is also a great opportunity to discuss any questions about pcb machining capabilities. If you are ready to fabricate, skip to Step 2.

Step 2:

This is your final design and manufacturing review before you submit a formal Fabrication Request.  Design Reviews typically take around 45 minutes, and you will need to come prepared with completed schematic and printed circuit board artwork.

Step 3:

After your design review your files will be ready for manufacturing. Submit the fabrication request with your completed files. Our staff will generate a quote for your job. Please complete payment via Paypal once you receive the quote.

Step 4:

Once the request has been submitted and paid, you will work with our staff to manufacture your PCB. Your in person or remote involvement in the manufacturing process includes control of the PCB fabrication software and instruction in setting up the PCB Mill. You will schedule your appointment(s) in the PCB design review (Step 2 above; e.g. drilling, milling, finishing). 

If you have questions about submitting a PCB Fabrication Request, please contact an ITLP Engineer
