Sierra Circuits has introduced a web app for designers to start ordering advanced PCBs just by submitting design files. A prominent feature of this application is you can go ahead and place your order even if your design files aren’t error-free. Our DFM and DFA engineers will get in touch with you and assist in resolving the issues, if any.

How to use the application

First, you will have to select the type of order that you wish to place. The available options are:

  1. Only fabrication (PCB)
  2. Fabrication + assembly (PCB + components)

For now, let’s choose the first option – Only fabrication.

After selecting the order type, you need to upload the design files. The application accepts files in KiCAD, Gerber, and ODB++ formats.
