PCB layout for LPC2294

Started by itsashish_iitk June 24, 2006
Hi Eric,
You didn't say where you're based.

In the UK, I use PCBTrain for surface-mount prototypes.
I think their main line is fast turnaround bare
prototype pcbs but they can populate them as well.

(I get bare production pcbs made elsewhere and assemble
through-hole boards in-house).

I don't think they are cheap (last time it worked
out at GBP0.30 per placement independent of
whether it was an 0805 resistor or an LPC2292) but
it works for me.

Regards,
Danish

They are part of Newbury Electronics. Some years ago we got them to make and
assemble some prototype PCBs for us; we couldn't get the boards to work and
assembled a couple ourselves which worked OK.

My advice would be to contact the people who will be making the board
for you. They will be able to tell you what their capabilities are.

Take a look at

http://www.screamingcircuits.com

They have an online quoting service, so that'll give you a
good idea of price. They also handle BGA parts.
