I would like to get a quote for a new design, what information do you
The basic answer is the more information you can provide the better.
Typically, there are several rounds of questions and answers before a
detailed quote can be provided but a few of the most common questions
- What is the project?
- How will it be used?
- What quantity are you interested in?
- What is the target price point per unit or total project?
- What is the desired schedule for this project?
- What are the size/weight requirements?
- What are the environmental requirements?
- What are the EMI requirements?
- What are the shock and vibration requirements?
- Are there RoHS requirements?
I'm looking to have one unit of a custom board built, how much will it
There are many parameters that must factored in for an accurate
quote. However, a very simple project may only be several hundred
dollars. A more complicated design such as a custom PCIe card might
start at several thousand dollars.
I have an old custom board that has failed and have little information
on it, can you repair it or design a replacement?
Yes, the question is how much effort will be required. For boards
designed with discrete components there should not be any complications.
However, boards with highly specialized ICs or embedded firmware can
pose problems. In these cases either another working board is required
that we can test or some documentation must be available. Typically, the
less information available the more effort required.
