As hobbyists ourselves, we organize local mfg power, panelize designs, reduce the shipping cost, and ensure the quality. It will be a source to sustain our company along with other services we provide.

The minimum PCB quantity we accept for mass production is as low as 10 pieces.When you order PCB through our online system, we will send you a confirmation with an order number.

To make sure orders processed smooth and accurately, mark your order number in silkscreen layer, pack Gerber files into a zip file named A[order number]_[PCB size] (example: A14756_10X10.rar) and then email to [email protected]ptinex.com by including order number in the subject line. Please be sure to avoid boards less than 2cm to reduce cost.

If the file and design meet the Aptinex guidelines, they will be processed and shipped in 1 to 2 weeks based on the order quantity.

Gerber file requirement

The following layers are needed:

  • Top layer: pcbname.GTL
  • Bottom layer: pcbname.GBL
  • Solder Stop Mask top: pcbname.GTS
  • Solder Stop Mask Bottom: pcbname.GBS
  • Silk Top: pcbname.GTO
  • Silk Bottom: pcbname.GBO
  • NC Drill: pcbname.TXT

Note: Board outline must be included at least in one layer. The Gerber file must be RS-274x format.

Design tips

  • Your Gerber file must include only one design
  • Drills line and long slot can’t be accepted
  • Minimum slot 1mm*1mm
  • DRC compatible as rule file attached
  • The PCB size is smallest rectangle that can accommodate PCB
Clarification to penalizing

For the service ‘5cm Max * 5cm Max’, ‘5cm Max * 10cm Max’, ‘10cm Max * 10cm Max’, ‘5cm Max * 15cm Max’, and ‘10cm Max * 15cm Max’, you can penalize to save the cost. However, you are required to cut the boards by yourself or get it done by us for a nominal fee.

The rules of Panelizing
  • There should be no more than 5 sub-boards to fit the size.
  • The sub-boards should only be separated by the silkscreen. Using Any holes or slots to separate the sub-boards are not permitted.

Available Quantity Option

We undertake any order in multiples of 10.

Note: If you want to order more than 10 pcs, please do check the price for different options and find the most economic one.
