DEFINED IMPEDANCE pool

Bare Board or Assembled PCB’s up to 8 Layers

Made in Europe

Eurocircuits’ PCB DEFINED IMPEDANCE pool is a fast turnaround solution for PCB’s with a specific impedance requirements for certain tracks.

The online menus contain a calculator to help you to define the correct track and gap values for your layout, for example for 50Ω characteristic and 90Ω differential impedance using material with a guaranteed dielectric constant (εr).

A single clear smart menu structure gives you immediate access to Eurocircuits’ wide range of pooling and non-pooling options. The menu will flag non-poolable items, so that you can change them for lower cost pooling options where possible.

Pooling prices are based on panel-sharing. Non-pooling prices are based on a production panel specific to the option and the job.

Boards can be supplied as single circuits or panels.

The standard price matrix shows alternative (lower-cost) quantities and deliveries, or set your own custom matrix. If your requirements are not covered, use Place inquiry to send your data to our engineers for evaluation.
