Design Rules, Guidelines, and Limitations
 Rule  Notes
 Board Panel Size  12" X 8.5" maximum panelized size (limited by reflow)
 Single Sided  All SMT parts must be on one side. Hand placed parts will be placed  after reflow and either side is okay.
 Minimum Placements  Every Panel should have 400+ placements. It takes time between  switch panels and running reflow.
 5% Excess Supply  Please supply 5% excess of parts for rework and loss when setting  reels up. Any remaining parts will be shipped back with completed  boards.
 6inches of tape excess  Non-reeled parts should be ordered with 6 inches excess tape for  setting up the machine.
 Tubed parts  We do not have the capability at the moment; must be hand placed.  See if the part is also available in reel or tray.
 Lead Free  We only work with ROHS lead free solder paste.
 Limited Hand Place  Maximum of 10% parts placed by hand.
 Polarity  Silkscreen or additional documentation should indicate polarity for  visual inspection when programming centroid file.

The above pricing is provided for budgetary purposes. Prices are subject to change and we will update as soon as possible.

Warranty: Basic Boards takes every precaution to make sure the assembled boards are to the customer's specifications. Dual camera system in assembly provides precise placement. Magnified visual checks will be taken after each step. PCB's must be electrically tested before assembly. High end made in USA machines contribute to our quality standards. We will rework any parts that incorrectly reflow and fix any faults due to our manufacture. Electrical tests and programming jigs can be provided by the customer to enhance QC. Basic Boards must be immediately notified of faults detected after shipment. Basic Boards will not be responsible to faults due to follow-on assembly, improper pad or solder stencil design, non manufacturable designs.
