Printed Circuit Board Submission Process
NOTICE: Starting 2/14/2018 the Peralta Engineering Studios can only produce boards that are tied to a class.
Each board must be submitted as a separate ticket to avoid confusion in manufacturing.
- Verify that your PCB design fits within our fabrication capabilities.
- Export Gerber files from your preferred PCB editor.
- Run a Design for Manufacturing checking with DFM Now and fix any errors identified.
- Print a 100% sized copy of your PCB design and physically place all components on the printout to confirm that the footprints are correct. This is particularly important for ICs, connectors, and daughterboards.
- Show your successful DFM check results to a TA or professor so they can document approval of your PCB design for fabrication.
- Please go to fultonapps.asu.edu/polylab submit files. Include the following information in the request details:
- Professor and class
- Quantity of boards (only 1 allowed per design; exceptions allowed with professor approval)
- Solder mask needed? (only allowed for final board designs)
- Rub out area needed? If yes, specify location
- Copper thickness (default is 0.5 oz)
- Zip all files together in one zip folder with your Lastname.Firstname.zip
- Once the job has been accepted you will receive an email with the status changed on your ticket.
- You will receive an email from Poly Lab Request Notification System within 3 – 4 days when your PCB is ready to be picked up. If you are interested in learning about and being a part of the fabrication process with the LPKF mill, please take a look at this video.
- After receiving your PCB, make sure to do a continuity test on all traces and vias before adding parts and soldering.
If you have any questions, please contact Peralta.Labs@asu.edu.
