How can I pay?
We accept payments by PayPal, cash, bank transfer (T/T) or VISA.
What is your testing policy and how you control the quality?
For sample, usually tested by flying probe; for PCB Volume over 3 square meters, usually tested by fixture, this will be more faster. Due to there's many steps to PCB production, we usually do inspection after every step.
Do you have PCB in stock?
No. Our PCB board are custom-made product, all produced depends on clients gerber file
Can you manufacture my PCBs from a picture file?
No, we cannot accept BMP, GIF, TIFF, or JPG pictures as the manufacturing file.If you do not have gerber file, you can send us sample to copy it.

Yes we can offer sample, but you have to pay first, once you do mass production from us, the sample fee will pay back to your account! I believe we can do long term business!
What is your MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity)?
There is no MOQ. We are able to handle small as well as large volume production with flexibility.
What do you require in order to produce an assembly quotation?
Bill of materials (BOM) detailing the components to be fitted to the PCB with the manufacturers parts numbers and the components suppliers' parts number (e.g. Digi-key, Mouser, RS ).
Will my PCB files be checked?
Yes. Your data will be checked with our design rule check
