    Using Proto link with 100x100 and default values (5 pieces, 2 layers, green, 1.6 HASL, Normal, North America, Free HK Air) calculates $65, not $50.

    The Service Rules at the right state 5 pieces, 200x200, 2 layers, $50. It does not give size limits to Basic Fee.

    The proto Service Rules do not identify components. What about micro-controllers, specifically PICs?


    Very interesting prices for free components / shipping, Paypal makes things easier as well. It would be reassuring if there were no contradiction in prices.
    Not as dumb as yesterday, but stupider than tomorrow!

    I have used ezPCB many times.

    Basically, if you order 5 pcs that are 100x100 or less and it's not a repeat order, you automatically qualify for the $50 special prototyping price. If not, an email will straighten things out.

    IIRC, the free parts are limited to passives.

    The quality and service are excellent plus they offer assembly. My only disappointment is their substantial surcharge for any color that's not green.

    Those who are developing projects with PIC or 8051 are lucky. EzPCB has 2 super value promotion for these 2 MCUs.

    Hmmm, maybe mackrackit's suggestion of a PIC on the Connect One shield board wasn't such a bad idea, after all.

    Those are neat, compact programmers. It's a shame they aren't USB. Maybe mister_e can show their designers how to use CDC.

    Seriously, that is a good deal and I know from experience that ezPCB does excellent work.

    Is the special price based on area? For example, I have a board that is 108mm x 77mm (0.823 dm˛). Does it qualify for the special prototype price?

    Yes the price is based on aera. any boards less than 10000 square mm has the same price. There're 4 steps of price: $50 for <100 cm^2, $65 for 100-200 cm^2, $80 for 200-300 cm^2, $95 for 300 to 400 cm^2. areas are for single boards, not total size. There're 5pcs for each order.

    Thanks dave! I had a look at your website, it's excellent! I like the idea of GP-DIY-PCB. I'm also a electronic engineer with more than 15 years experience. We can talk more topics than PCB, such as microcontrollers, RF designs, sensors, switching power supplies.

    The most significant difference between EzPCB and other PCB house is that EzPCB has an electronic engineer team to help customers to design their projects.
