Looking for Cheap PCB Prototyping Options?

Advanced Circuits has been a leader in high-quality quickturn PCB manufacturing in the U.S. for over 25 years.  Specializing in prototypes and production runs for the simplest two-later boards to the most complex design.  Our Expanded Capabilities can support advanced designs with demanding requirements including: laser drilled microvias, cavity boards, heavy copper up to 20 oz., via-in-pad, microwave & RF boards, up to 40 layers and more.

Advanced Circuits Offers High Quality Options for Cheap PCB Prototyping

Cheap PCB options from Advanced Circuits

Our 2 and 4 layer prototyping special allows customers to cut cost without sacrificing PCB quality or turnaround speed.  Our 2 & 4 Layer Special options are manufactured in our state-of-the-art Colorado facility using the same high tech equipment as our regular production of Standard and Custom Spec options.

Our BareBones™ option for 2 layer design ships in just 1 day with no minimum quantity requirements .  This options is made without Soldermask and without Silkscreen, hence the “BareBones™” name.  This option is great for those that need a very quick prototype to test out a simple design.  The BareBones™ special is not only popular because it is a cheap PCB prototyping option, but also because of you can choose to be reimbursed the cost of the BareBones™ boards when you “upgrade” your part number to a Standard Spec on your next run.

Another great option for 2 layer prototype boards is the $33 Each Special.  This special pricing option allows you to manufacture any size PCB (up to 60 square inches) for the fixed price of only $33.  That’s correct, your design can be for small boards, medium boards, or large boards up to 60 square inches and it will only cost $33 each.  Custom shapes are allowed and the minimum order quantity is only 3 pieces – ships in just 5 days!  You may also use as much of the 60 square inches available with a multi-part or array for a small fee.

Similar to our “$33 Each” special, our 4 layer prototyping option also ships in just 5 days.  You can order any size 4 layer board (up to 30 square inches) for the fixed price of only $66 each.  The high quality prototypes can have a custom shape an are not limited to rectangular outlines.

All PCB orders placed with Advanced Circuits receive a full CAM review prior to manufacturing to ensure that any design issues the PCB design may have are corrected prior to production.
