PCB Bare Board ECO

Your BEST Source For High Quality ECOs and ECNs on Bare Boards

There are cases when you need a fast and/or extremely precise or very high volume bare board ECO (Engineering Change Order) or ECN (Engineering Change Notification) completed on an unpopulated PCB. When these cases arise think of BEST as your “go to” source for getting you out of trouble when a board spin is not fast enough or there are tens of thousands of dollars in potential scrap that cannot be accepted.

Typical changes that BEST can perform on your board and are performed routinely include:

  • Trace and conductor cuts
  • Elimination of pads
  • Addition of traces and pads
  • Mechanical outline changes to a boar include the cutting of mounting holes
  • Precise solder mask removal or additions
  • Addition or removal of identification marks
