ALCANTAPCB ordering process Q&A

ALCANTAPCB requires the Gerber file format for PCB manufacturing.

A PCB Gerber file is the standard format used in the printed circuit board industry to convey information about the design to the PCB manufacturer. It contains all the necessary information for fabrication, including copper layers, solder mask, legend (silkscreen), and drill data.

BOM stands for Bill of Materials. It is a comprehensive list of all the components needed to assemble a PCB, including part numbers, quantities, and reference designators.

Yes, PCBs can be produced in a variety of colors to suit your preferences or branding requirements.

Different thicknesses for PCBs are available to accommodate various project needs and specifications.

Various PCB finishes are offered, including HASL (Hot Air Solder Leveling), ENIG (Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold), OSP (Organic Solderability Preservatives), and more, to meet different application requirements.

Yes, assistance with PCB design and layout is provided to ensure optimal performance and manufacturability of your circuit board.

When you need to order PCBs, you can email us through our website and provide your design files and requirements. Afterwards, we will provide you with a quote and guide you through the ordering process.

The time it takes to receive a quote for PCB and assembly depends on the complexity of the project. Typically, a quote is provided within 24 to 48 hours.

Reliable delivery services such as DHL, FedEx, UPS, or other reputable carriers are used to ensure prompt and secure delivery of your PCBs.

PCBs can be tested using various methods such as automated testing, functional testing, and visual inspection to ensure they meet the required specifications and quality standards.

PCB clone services are offered in cases where there are no existing design files. This involves reverse engineering the PCB to recreate the design.

Measures are taken to ensure the security of your design information through confidentiality agreements, restricted access to sensitive data, and secure data transmission protocols.

The turnaround time for PCB prototyping depends on factors such as board complexity and manufacturing queue, with fast turnaround times typically offered to meet tight project deadlines.
