New Features: Trace Width, Drill Size, Gold Fingers

We’ve added new features to PCBShopper. You can now specify the minimum trace width and spacing, the minimum drill size, and gold fingers on your printed circuit board.

Elecrow Is Back

We are pleased that we are again able to get prices from Elecrow. They have rejoined our price comparison calculator.

Elecrow Down

Elecrow appears to have changed their web site, and PCBShopper is no longer able to get prices from them. We have disabled Elecrow in our price comparison calculator until the problem can be resolved.

Screaming Circuits Is Back

Screaming Circuits has re-joined our PCB Assembly price comparison calculator. They had changed their web site about a month ago, which prevented us from getting prices. We’ve modified PCBShopper – with assistance from Screaming Circuits – to get them back on the list.

New Manufacturer: EasyEDA

We’ve just added EasyEDA as our 27th printed circuit board manufacturer. EasyEDA’s free, web-based PCB CAD software has been on our free CAD page for a long time now, but we didn’t have them in our price comparison list because their on-line quote form was not usable by PCBShopper. EasyEDA solved this by writing an API for us to use, and we thank them for that.

New Feature: Millimeters

We’ve been told that in Europe, millimeters are used more often than centimeters for specifying board sizes. So we have added mm as an option in our Units pull-down box.

Assembler Removed: Screaming Circuits

We have removed Screaming Circuits from the PCB Assembly price comparison calculator. Screaming Circuits changed their quote form¬†such that our existing code no longer worked. Their new quote form is … unusual. It may take us some time to figure out whether we can get prices from it.

New Assembler: Bittele (7pcb)

We added Bittele as a PCB manufacturer less than two weeks ago. Today, we’ve added them to our PCB assembly list as well. Bittele has been very cooperative in modifying their on-line quote forms to meet PCBShopper’s needs, and we appreciate how easy it is to get pricing information from their site.

New Manufacturer: Bittele (7pcb)

We have added our 26th manufacturer, Bittele, whose web site is 7pcb.com. Their headquarters are in Canada and their manufacturing is done in China.

New Feature: Stencil Pricing

We just added stencils to our price comparison options. If you’re working with surface mount devices, you can specify whether you want a stencil for one or both sides of your PCB. Not all PCB manufacturers offer stencils, but we’ll show you the ones that do and how much it will cost. The prices we show are for stencils without frames.
