PCB Layout Design Service

PCB Layout Design Service

Makerfabs offers PCB layout design service for your hardware project, including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Maduino and related open source project.
With more than 5 years of working experience on open source hardware products include the Arduino/ Raspberry Pi/ mbed/ Beagle bone, etc, Makerfabs R&D team has created many projects that have been produced and popular sold on the market. Makerfabs team is glad to share our engineer experience with customers, to boost hardware startups creating projects quickly.

Besides, Makerfabs designed the Maduino IoT series, which are based on Arduino and wireless connections such as BLE/GPRS/GPS/BLE/LORA/WIFI, etc, to create a basic IoT node. We also help modifying currently designs based on customer’s requests, to meet your special requirements. 


Makerfabs can help your projects as follows:
1. Schematic Designing. Makerfabs can help with schematic designing as customer provide detailed function requests, especially on IoT/ smart home/ wireless transmission, etc.
2. Components Selecting. Makerfabs has rich experience in the components sourcing, quality control and cost control, can help customers finding out the most appropriate components in the design, with the right spec and better price.
3. PCB Layout. Makerfabs helps customers on the PCB layout for 1~6 layers PCB, currently supports Eagle/ Altium Designer/ PADS.
4. PCBA DFM. Makerfabs give suggestions or help modify customer projects, to ensure the PCB design manufacture friendly and thus to reduce the production cost. (DFM = Design for Manufacturability, which starts with improving the manufacturability of parts, making parts and processes easy to manufacture, low manufacturing cost, high efficiency, and low cost.)

Send your request and related files to sales@makerfabs.com, our engineers will check your requirement and estimat the project difficulty. And this service will be quoted by Makerfabs project manager. The quotation depends on our estimation of the work difficulty and lead time.

For PCBA customers, Makerfabs would be glad to supply free service, to help customers avoiding mistakes and create better cooperation in further business.


Below is how Makerfabs PCB ODM service works:
1. Requirement Confirmation
At the very first beginning, Makerfabs engineers need to know your specific requirement:your PCB size, what function do you want, do you have designated chip. We need the requirment as detail as possible. Then we can reach an agreement as soon as possible. If we don’t reach an agreement of your final demand, feel free to contact us anytime. 

2. Quotation
After we confirm your requirement, we will evaluate your project, measure the design period and calculate the cost. The quotation will include two part, design work cost and sample manufacturing cost. Note, if your following batch order amount reach to certain value, we can refund the design cost. ( The “certain value” will vary from different project, contact your project manager for right info.)
 

3. Schematic Diagram
A well-drawn schematic makes functions clear. After data preparation and library creation process, Makerfabs engineer will complete the schematic carefully on the basis of the function, chips, peripheral circuit, chip package, pin and the interaction between them.
 

4. PCB Layout
Our PCB layout specialist need to spend much time with you to consult all aspects of the circuit, system design, mechanical and environmental requirements, bare board manufacturing requirements plus assembly and test requirements. We will consider it all to make sure that the design intend is delivered accurately.
 

5. PCB Manufacturing
Makerfabs is famous for PCB manufacturing service. So, the following step would be very easy. We will go through these process “bare PCB manufacturing→ components sourcing→ PCB assembly”. It takes 1 week to produce the PCB samples.
 

6. Programming and Testing
After we complete the samples, we will test the boards. If there is programmable IC in the boards, we will upload the program to test if the board goes well. If something goes wrong, Makerfabs will carry out performance analysis, error checking and troubleshooting.
 

7. Packing and Shipping
After above all works finished, the boards are ready to pack and ship. Makerfabs deliver globally. Regularly, the samples will be shipped by DHL. If you need other shipping mothod, pls note to your project manager.
