Why is there additional cost for panel PCBs?

The reason why the cost of panel pcb will increase is it lower substrate utilization.PCB substrate is a fixed size, when your board is small, manufacturers can make panel by themselves, so the rate of substrate utilization is high and less waste area, the cost will decrease.But if your design is panel, the manufacturer must treat your panel as the basic unit, so the rate of substrate utilization is low and the cost will rise. And it needs V-cut and route.And many different designs on the same b...

Blind vias and Buried Vias

Blind and buried vias are only available on boards with at least four layers. Unlike regular vias on a two layer board which connect the two surface layers, buried and blind vias connect the inner layers with either other adjacent inner layers or adjacent surface layers.Blind Vias: Connects an inner layer with the adjacent surface layer, they are only visible on one side of the boards and so are called 'blind' vias. Buried Vias: Connects two adjacent inner copper layers. They are not vis...

What should I do if my PCB does not require solder mask?

Unlike the copper layer, the solder mask layer is negative. This means a solid object in the layer corresponds to a hole, or opening in the solder mask layer (an area without solder mask covering). Therefore, for a board that requires the surface to be fully covered with solder mask, the solder mask layer should look like this, an empty outline of the boards. For boards that do not require solder mask at all (exposed traces and bare FR-4 substrate material), then the solder mask layer should be ...

What is the correct way to draw silkscreen on the bottom layer?

The bottom silkscreen text should be reflected (mirrored). Most PCB design software will automatically reflect the text for you but please make sure this is the case in the Online Gerber Viewer or other viewers.

What's the Gerber?

The Gerber format is an open 2D binary vector image file format. It is the standard file used by printed circuit board (PCB) industry software to describe the printed circuit board images: copper layers, solder mask, legend, etc.Gerber files should be inside a .rar archive with standard file extensions:Extension Layerpcbname.GTL Top Copper pcbname.GTS Top Soldermask pcbname.GTO Top Silkscreen pcbname.GBL ...
