In today’s internet economy, there is not much that you cannot order online. PCBs are no exception, and in this article, we walk you through the process of how to order PCBs online and how to DIY your own Arduino projects with PCBWay.

PCBWay is our preferred manufacturer because they are a complete online manufacturing platform. Their solutions include PCB manufacturing, assembly and BoM sourcing. What we like most about PCBWay is their one-on-one customer service, which few other online platforms offer.

Ordering your first PCB? Read through this article for the basic and necessary steps before ordering your first PCBs.

Currently PCBWay is not only offering Quick PCB prototyping and manufacturing service, but also PCB assembly and design service. Here are the main services PCBWay offers, for example:

PCBWay evaluates the cost of PCB manufacturing based on the technology requirements. To place your first order, all you need is the Gerber zip file. Through the Quick-Order option, you don't need to fill out the board parameters one by one, since the required data will be detected from the uploaded Gerber files. Moreover, based on our Gerber viewer, you can also visualize your Gerber files, and "real" looking PCB images in a simple way on the quick-order page.

The turnaround time can be as short as 24 hours after your Gerber files being reviewed and approved by the engineers, greatly saving time.

Being quick in delivery never compromises on the quality. With the stringent test procedures, you can be assured that you will be satisfied with the PCB from PCBWay for your high-tech work. Apart from the quality, PCBWay can also beat most of other fabricators on prices (as low as 5 USD for 10 boards), which is critical for your work as you may need tens of hundreds of PCBs to finalize your research and design.

Just like PCB business, PCBWay also specializes in prototyping and small-volume PCBA production, making PCBWay the one-stop destination of boards fabrication and assembly. This arrangement makes your R&D work easy and time-saving. The professional engineers and technicians will work closely with you to ensure the best quality and quickest possible lead time. Fulfilling thousands of orders daily from around the world, PCBWay has been established as the leading supplier of PCB and PCBA services for consistent quality and excellent services with low price starting from only $30.

1. Get instant online quotes for PCB assembly by filling in the quantity (if you are not sure about the number of Unique Parts, SMT pads, through holes, they can be empty).

2. Upload Gerbers file, Parts List (BOM) and Centroid file, please read SMT Ordering Necessary Files & Info. So that we can quote you faster and more accurately.

3. During the manufacturing process, PCBWay will send sample pictures to you to confirm everything is correct. If you need to test or program, just provide test methods or programming solutions in quote.

Apart from PCB fabrication and assembly serivce,PCBWay also has a large open source community, where you can find a lot of projects related to Arduino. You can post your own interesting projects, and also purchase directly from others’ amazing Arduino PCBs. With the detailed tutorial and required files, you can easily build your own Arduino projects with special features!
