Prototype and Production PCBs

Looking to test your design before committing to a full PCB production run? We specializes in PCB prototyping that allows you to evaluate the design, performance, and capabilities of your board first -  a smart practice that could save a significant amount of time and money in the long run. 

Royal Circuits fabricates your small-quantity prototype PCBs with the same state-of-the-art equipment and processes that we use to manufacture production PCBs for our Fortune 500 customers. Our services are FAST, so you can get your prototype printed circuit board the next day. 

HDI Circuit Boards

Due to the growing complexity of design structures, high-density circuit boards (HDI) are being used more and more, especially in consumer electronic products. As products increase in functionality and decrease in size and weight, circuit board engineers need new solutions to maximize space on each board. HDI technology gives designers more space on their PCBs to place smaller components even closer together. Types of HDI PCBs include:

- Through vias from surface to surface

- Buried vias with through vias

- Two or more HDI layers with through vias

- Passive substrate with no electrical connection.

Flex and Rigid-Flex PCBs

Flex and rigid-flex PCBs are used to fit in an end-product where no other design can be used. They are a combination of an ordinary printed circuit board and round wire. This allows them to retain the density and repeatability of printed circuits, but it also opens up the possibility for any size or shape design. In fact, flex boards can even be folded or creased to fit into the smallest areas. Flex circuits also provide a significant cost savings with no reduction in performance over wire and wire harness assemblies.

Rigid-flex circuits are most commonly used by designers in the aerospace, medical and military industries.

Not only do we offer flexible PCBs for fast production, we can also provide flex PCB prototypes to see your custom designs before a big shipment is created. Our flex and rigid-flex capabilities are designed to meet a variety of circuit board needs from single or double-sided circuitry to multilayer technology. We offer different material substrates and adhesives, as well as surface finishes and treatments.  Stiffeners can also be added for reinforcement.
