Why Cheap PCB Prototypes from BasicPCB?

Designing a PCB for a product is a complex and detailed process no mater how you look at it. Placing PCBs into a finished product is not the time to discover flaws in the PCB design and determine that a major redesign is needed. This causes delays in product development and adds considerable expense. Engineering changes made later in the process are considerably more expensive for production than detecting problems earlier in the cycle.

A Cheap PCB Prototype is the answer to as rapid development of printed circuit boards to validate the function and performance of the board design. This contributes to cost reduction and lean manufacturing of the finished product. PCB prototypes can be produced by a number of specialized businesses that provide low cost and fast delivery of finished products ready for testing.
