Sierra Standard Product Fabrication & Assembly Capabilities

Board Type Rigid PCBs
Board Shape Simple shapes, not complex.
Board Spec IPC-6012 Class 2, no IPC coupons or microsection coupons provided. No mil-spec.
Stack-Up Design Sierra Circuits standard stack-ups.
Fabrication of ITAR or Export Controlled jobs? No, we do not process any ITAR or Export controlled orders in this service. Only send us files that are not ITAR controlled or have no export control restrictions.
RoHS Available? Yes, your board can be RoHS if you choose RoHS-compliant surface finish (ENIG). You have an option to not have any RoHS markings on your board if you so choose.

Laminations Single lamination double-sided or multi-layer boards only. In this online offer, we do not provide boards that need multiple laminations or have HDI features.
Blind Vias No.
Buried Vias No.
High-Density Interconnect (HDI) No. In this online offer we only provide single lamination PCBs with through-hole vias.
Non-plated Holes Yes.
Vias-in-Pad We can manufacture your PCBs that have via-in-pad features. An extra process of non-conductive filling will be done on all vias, to ensure good soldering at assembly. Such vias must be 6 mils or more in size. In Sierra Standard Product service, we only offer 7 days, 10 days and 15 days turnkey when your board has via-in-pad features.
PCB CAD Data Format Gerber RS-274X, ODB++, IPC-2581
Are Arrays Allowed in PCB CAD Data? No (only single image of single PCB allowed).
Data for PCBs For PCBs: We prefer RS-274X extended Gerber format. If your file is not in RS-274X, send an aperture file. Please, see FAQs below for what files to include.
Data for Assembly BOM (in excel), X Y data, and assembly drawing.
Turnkey Turntimes 5 days, 7 days, 10 days and 15 days.
Cut-Off Time 5:00 PM. Day 0 begins when validation is done or the final consigned components are received, whichever is later.
