Distributor Digi-Key Electronics has launched a PCB manufacturing service.
The DKRed programme is part of the Digi-Key PCB Builder tool and will allow hobbyists, makers and students to quote, source and order smaller quantities of custom print circuit boards (PCBs).
DKRed is a quick-turn around feature in PCB Builder that has a minimum order quantity of just four boards. The two layer FR4 boards can be as small as 25 x 25mm (1x1in) or up to 254 x 254mm (10 x 10in) .
The turnaround time from ordering to delivery is approximately 10 days at a cost of $1.50 per square inch. DKRed is currently available to all customers and boards ship free to all 50 US states, although there are delivery charges to Europe.
“With the launch of DKRed, Digi-Key is further committing to its mission of being a one-stop shop for turning a concept into reality for all customers,” said Missy Hall, senior director, new market development for Digi-Key. “We are proud to enhance our PCB Builder tool to ensure that all stages in the design and development journey are supported, from design to prototyping, sourcing and beyond.”
Digi-Key’s PCB Builder tool was launched in June 2020 and streamlines the PCB ordering experience and allows customers to receive instant quotes from multiple PCB companies all in one place. PCB Builder is part of the Digi-Key Marketplace initiative, which provides a singular shopping experience for all things related to technology innovation — IoT, industrial automation, test and measurement and more.
