1. ### High volume PCB price; 6 layer vs 10 layer board

Thanks, I did found some Chinese companies, the rough price per sq inch is 0.5$for 10 layer and 0.3$ for 6 layer PCB. On a large (50sq inch) PCB the difference is 10\$. It can probably get cheaper w/negotiation for very high volume, but I agree, 6layer can turn out to be too noisy.
2. ### High volume PCB price; 6 layer vs 10 layer board

Hi, Does anyone have an idea what is the (very) high volume (100k+) price difference between six layer (4Sig, 2planes) vs 10 layer (6sig, 4 planes). Or, any web based calculator (haven't had luck locating one) for high violume PCB. I am inclined to try with 6layer, but then the traces must be...
3. ### Altium - snap when measuring

It works, THANKS!!!
4. ### Altium - snap when measuring

Hi, When creating PCB part, I was able to measure pad-to-pad distance to verify my component. Although the pads are not on regular grid, the cursor would snap to pad center when clicked near by. Somehow, I lost that feature, I think I pressed some shortcut inadvertedly. How to regain it, anyone...
5. ### 7Segment LED display w/integrated driver?

Thanks, Looks like controller is going to be separate. :cry:
6. ### 7Segment LED display w/integrated driver?

Hi, Is there such thing as 7-segment LED display with integrated driver, prefferably I2C controlled one? I would like to avoid separate driver due to cost/space. That is, it would be nice to have display with Power, GND and Interface lines only :) Thanks,
7. ### Create PCB part for 1434 pin BGA in Altium

1434 bga Hi, what is the easiest way to create PCB pattern for 1434 pin BGA (called FCBGA7) part? Wizzard does not help much, the pin pattern is odd, not all pins are in rectangular grid. I have a list of coordinates (wrt center of component) in pdf, if I make it in Excell, can I...
8. ### Which is the best software for PCB design?

best circuit pcb designing software Thanks, I am also inclined to take it. As for autorouter, I am yet to see the "perfect" one. Even those boards that come with the demo package (and are presumably autorouted) are not that great, there is a room for improvement. As ususal, it is best to place...
9. ### Which is the best software for PCB design?

bst pcb software Hi, I am looking into Sch/PCB SW, and we narrowed down choice between Pulsonix and Altium Designer. I checked both (still evaluating) and am satisfied, so the tech side (UI, Options etc) is not a decisive issue. Can someone advise what is better choice, having in mind tech...
