Eurocircuits doesn’t take a summer break since your project deadlines don’t either
Share your technical paper with us and we will publish it on our website.

We are constantly looking for good stories, technical content that inspires other electronic designers to challenge themselves and maybe also to share their technical knowledge with our design community.

Eurocircuits’ community today exists of more than 600.000 visitors to our .com website, 60.000 subscribers to our newsletter (English and German) and many followers on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

All our technical papers whether they are published as website page or BLOG are communicated through these various channels to our European electronic designer community. Here are two examples of that:

If you are an active Eurocircuits’ customer and you feel like you have some interesting story to share with our Eurocircuits community, then please send it to us by e-mail. We will evaluate the content and if it fits the scope of what we publish then we will take it on board and inform you of it.

If you have any questions about this or any of our service please feel free to get in touch and we will be more than happy to help. Try out our online chat!

Eurocircuits doesn’t take a Summer break.

Eurocircuits doesn’t take a summer break since your project deadlines don’t either

Our full range of PCB manufacturing services is available throughout the year. We have no summer shutdown; we only close the plant for Christmas and New Year.

As a board designer you need to be confident that your PCB supplier can offer fast and reliable deliveries whenever you need them. To achieve this needs experienced and specialist capacity planning. With no summer shut-down we must have spare capacity to accommodate machine downtime for planned maintenance, as well as to meet demand growth and demand spikes. We have generated this extra capacity through ongoing investments in new plant and equipment. Capacity planning has allowed us to handle demand growth, as well as routine maintenance, without weakening our on-time delivery rate.

And if something goes wrong? Where possible we have duplicated processes and machinery, and we have two plants in Europe geared specifically to PCB prototype production, both using the same business model we have refined over the past 26 years.

Our production staff are committed to providing a continuous service with reliable deliveries all year round. Our support engineers are equally committed to sharing our knowledge of PCB fabrication with the design community. They make sure that there are engineers on hand every day to answer your chat requests.

To see one of our factories in action, go to the video of the Eger, Hungary factory or in more detail How to make a PCB, also filmed in Eger. See another reason why, when you place your order, you can be confident that you will get the right board on the right day.

Eurocircuits Tips & tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB
Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB

What options are available to help reduce the cost of your Prototype PCB?

When uploading your PCB data to your Eurocircuits account you may have noticed on occasion some small Icons next to certain options:

  • Single coin, indicating this option has additional costs – Amending your design to fall into a classification which no longer has additional costs.
  • Stack of coins, this indicates that the option selected no longer falls into our pooling service and the cost will raise accordingly to reflect unique manufacture – here possible review the remarks and see if it is possible to amend the design to no longer fall outside of our pooling option, if this is not possible then use to the “customise matrix” to identify the most cost effective quantity.

In addition to the stack of coins your will also see a remark directing you to where the non-pooling option is:

We have worked to providing Design Rules which can be imported into 3 of the most popular CAD design packages. They will push your design to meet the cost effect design classification automatically, you can find these Design Rules here:

For “true” prototyping we also have the “NAKED Proto” service, by offering a high quality PCB which does not include soldermask or silk screen marking can reduce the price of you order by up to 45%.

Pooling customer orders and sharing the cost of production, the heart of our business and successfully offering affordable Prototype PCBs for 25 years.

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Cost effective Solderpaste Printing

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Cost effective Solderpaste Printing

Electronics is a very dynamic market, demanding smaller and smaller circuits, requiring very small tracks and gaps in the PCB layout. This also influences the components which can be used.

As Through Hole (THT) components are rarely available for these requirements, more designs are driven to SMD (surface mount devices). This causes additional costs to your small prototype series, namely no longer can you simply take a soldering Iron and solder wire to manufacture your boards. It is now essential to use Solderpaste and a Solderpaste stencil and printing device.

Solderpaste stencils can be expensive, requiring expensive machines to ensure perfect alignment for the stencil to the board.

Eurocircuits have worked with designers to understand what is required and how we can help to offer the right service for printing your boards with Solderpaste.

First we can offer Solderpaste stencils, you can order with a click of a button.

We also looked at our customers who need an alignment solution and for this we came up with the eC-registration:

Finally we thought long and hard and wanted to offer an affordable solution to align the stencil and boards accurately inside your lab environment. For this we can up with 2 solutions:

  • Stencil fix, see how this works here
  • Stencil-mate, see how this can help you here
