Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a "low cost" (relative term) PCB house that can do 4 mil trace & space, 4 layer gold-finish PCBs? The cheapest I've found so far is PCBcart. They're about $240 for a few little 1-inch PCBs once the setup charges are factored in.

I'd love to not need the 4 mil trace & space, but the BGA on this board needs that as a minimum. Does anybody have any other PCB house suggestions? Thanks.

It would have been nice if you would have put a location somewhere.

I know 'Vermeulen Print Service' can do it. You can request quotes from them ( www.vps.nl ) but they are a dutch company and might look rather funny when an australian(example) wants to order PCB's at their place.

There also is 'euro circuits' that can do it in their 'ondemand' option. They are belgian and more internet based, so probably will get orders from all over europe.

but there is a tread of a couple of pages that discusses PCB factories and their specs I think on the off-topic forum. perhaps check that out.....

Frank,

I visited your website in the hope of finding out where you are, but instead keep getting various versions of

... not if they know their history and that Australia was originally named "New Holland".

Aye, Canada is where I am, but I've previously purchased PCBs from Canada, the US, China and Europe, so I'm open to whatever. The postage on some little 1-inch PCBs is very small.

No problems.

By the way I think that your

well,
You can try:
cyner, but they could be expensive as they are more of a very special PCB house ( flex pcb's metal PCB's and that sort of stuff (www.cyner.nl)
Vermeulen print service (www.vps.nl) should be able
and the eurocircuits
those are the companies we do bussyness with for smal series. I know our factories in china can do it as we have made some production boards with 4/4mill but do not know who they are.

Johan,
I'm not 100% sure but it seems that this is the company that supplied those housings:

You could contact them and see ifthey can help you. If not, then let me know and I need to send a few e-mails to people to find-out where it then came from.
I hope this helps
regards

Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking Euro Circuits. They also have a US operation which does a PCB pool, called
