IMPORTANT
  • Selecting any of these options may increase the price of your PCB.
  • Selecting some options will trigger a warning to update or change parameters/values lin other sections, see example below:

By selecting Carbon contacts, a warning has been triggered, the same warning will also appear in the row of the parameter where the selected value needs to be changed.
