What are the PCB panelization rules?

Such order can directly be placed on Fusion PCB

 A.  There are no extra cost for identical design panelization.  

ie,  Choose“Panelized 1”means there are only one design in your PCB Gerber file.  So if you want to panelized with V-cut or milled slots, please make sure each sub-board is the same.

Tips:  a) put the v-cut line in outline layer (GKO/GML),e.g. put in layer 46 in Eagle.

   b) make a note beside the v-cut line as the following picture shows.


 If you want to use v-cut ,please following those rules:

1) The entire board size should be larger than 7cm*7cm, smaller than 38cm*38cm.

2) The sub-board size should be larger than 2cm*2cm.

※Please note if the sub-board size is smaller than 2cm*2cm in your PCB Gerber file, we will inform you to pay USD16 for the process fee.

3) V-cut line only be a straight line.

4) V-cut line only be cut from edge to the edge.

5) V-cut line must be zero pitch between sub-boards.  

6)The minimum length between circuit wire and the v-cut line as greater than 0.4mm.  

7) The thickness of the board must be greater than 1.0mm.

 B. Different PCB panelization.

Tips: a) Put all designs in one Gerber file.

     bMake sure the cut lines (slots) are in outline layer (GKO/GML), and the complete board outline should go all round the edge of the boards.

    c) Choose "Panelized PCBs" option, ie. 2 panelization= 2 designs, Maximum is 9 designs.


 Please note that if there are 2 designs are the same, we still consider that those are 5 designs.

C. No panelization.

 Tips:  a) Please make sure the complete board outline should go all round the edge of the boards.

      b) Use silkscreen to separate the board,No cut line in Outline layer (GKO/GML), please see the following picture

           c) You will get 1 complete board WITHOUT any cutting no matter you put different designs or same design here.
