online PCB manufacturer
« on: October 04, 2023, 10:39:23 PM »
I needed a one-off PCB made. I'm in the USA; anyone have recommendations for online places I can use to get it made?

I've had good luck with JLCPCB so far, their turnaround is fairly quick and their pricing is hard to beat. The only real downside is paying the $20 or so for quick shipping from China, but even then it's still far cheaper than ordering from OSHPark.

It depends on the complication of the design.  JLCPCB is good and will work for most straightforward boards.  OSHPark has slightly better capabilities.  PCBWay can do more complicated boards, but is more expensive.

For most boards, JLCPCB works just fine and the pricing is very good.
