Factors of price changes in PCB production
In the PCB industry, the price of each production is different, and there are many factors affecting it. So, what factors affect the price of PCB?
Just like other products, the prices of products made of different materials are different, as is the PCB. Take the ordinary double-sided board as an example, the sheet material generally has FR-4, CEM-3, etc., the sheet thickness varies from 0.6mm to 3.0mm, the copper thickness varies from 1Oz to 3Oz,10OZ the difference in sheet material causes a huge price difference .
2. Production process
Different production processes will cause different costs. Such as gold-plated board and tin-sprayed board, making gong (milled) board and beer (punch) board, and using silk-screen circuit and dry film circuit, etc. will form different costs, resulting in price diversity.
Even if the materials are the same and the process is the same, the difficulty of PCB production is different, which will cause different costs. If the width and pitch of the two circuit boards are different, one is larger than 0.2mm and the other is smaller than 0.2mm, which will also cause different production costs.
4. Other factors
In addition to the above factors, there are other factors, such as customer requirements, manufacturer's process equipment, packaging methods, shipping methods, payment methods, region, etc., which will affect the final price.
Among the above factors, the material factor is the most important. As far as the plate is concerned, the main factors affecting the price are the following:
1. Plate material
FR-4, the main materials are:
Rogers, Arlon, Taconic, TP-2, Megtron, Neclo, Isola, F4B, Taiyao TUC, Taiko EMC, Tenghui VT, Shengyi SY, Lianmao ITEQ, South Asia NOUYA, DuPont Kapton, Taihong, Hongren, Xin Yang, Nippon Steel, Teflon, Yasen, Panasonic Japan, RCC Japan, Mitsui Japan, 3M USA, Bergs, Yalong, Taiconi, etc.
, This is a common double-sided, multi-layer, HDI and high frequency mixed pressure, high frequency and FPC, soft and hard combination structure, high-speed material plate brand, price and plate thickness, copper and platinum thickness in the middle of the plate, line spacing and line width design , Hole number, hole design size, hole-to-layer ratio, different processes, different material grades are related to price. The price is very different from the multilayer board.
2. Plate thickness
Common thicknesses are: 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.5, 1.6, 2.0, 2.4, 3.0, 3.4. Different thicknesses and different prices.
3. Thickness of copper and platinum
The thickness of copper and platinum is generally divided into: 18 (2/1OZ), 35 (1 OZ) 70 (2OZ), 105 (3OZ), 140 (4OZ) and so on.
