Prototype Acquisition Cost
Let’s assume we have a schematic of a two layer board, and were ready to have it sent out to a reputable domestic prototyping service in the hopes of getting a prototype of your circuit board.
Now we didn’t search every US prototype manufacturer, but these results should paint a picture for you.
As you can see, the price hovers around $100 with a total lead time of about 1 week. We decided to now show display the names of these services, for the sake of keeping this discussion unbiased and in the event that you do go and use one of them, you will not associate them with this report.
