As experts in the manufacture and assembly of printed circuit boards, we work to make our blog a helpful resource on PCB topics and the industries that we work with, including automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and many more. Here you'll find insights into PCB design, tech trends, assembly issues, and trending topics in the general news media as they relate to printed circuit board technology.

Standard Spec Printed Circuit Boards

While both ordering options are made with the same high-quality standards customers have come to expect from Advanced Circuits, the Standard Spec ordering option parameters were set to let customers know how they can lower the cost of their PCB fabrication.  Staying within the parameters of a Standard Spec order can help customers lower their costs, especially when prototyping (small quantities and quick turn around).  The Standard Spec option also includes free tooling to help lower costs further.

  • Free Tooling
  • Same Day – 5 Day Turns
  • Up to 10 Layer PCB Designs
  • Great for Prototyping
  • Great for Quickturn
  • Great for Small Quantity

Custom Spec Printed Circuit Boards

Our Custom Spec ordering option opens up all of our expanded printed circuit board manufacturing capabilities, certification/qualification options, mechanical capabilities, and all Advanced Circuits has to offer.

  • Up to 40 Layer PCB Designs
  • Great for Production Circuits Boards
  • Great for Both Small and High-Volume Orders
  • Same Day – 4 Week Turns Available
  • Longer Lead Times Available to Reduce Costs
