Difference between standard PCB and Advanced PCB

  Standard board:→Fusion PCB Custom board:→Fusion Advanced PCB
Why it is cheap/expensive We will buy lots of metal-clad bade material in the same specification at once to reduce the cost. We will buy many different kinds of metal-clad bade materials.
Put many designs from different customers in one huge panel to manufacture together. Manufacture different design one by one.
Using the standard and unchangeable processing line. Change processing step when necessary.
Advantage Cheap and start from $4.9 More customized options
Production will be fast by standard processing high-end processing ability
Disadvantage No more options by standard processing Expensive by customized the options and processing
Need to add a manufacturing number on PCB Take more time to manufacture.
What kind of people need it Student, Engineers, Startup, Small enterprise,  Engineers, Purchaser/buyer of enterprises, Researcher
What kind of product need it Function test
For fun
Prototype or small batches during early trials
the product for mainstream market
the product with highly integration design
the product with high frequency signal
