What is the lead time for Fusion PCB/PCBA orders?

PCB: The lead time for PCB orders is around 6 - 17 business days. Please see below for details. 

  • PCB in production: Your PCB is being produced (3 - 14 business days, see note 1).
  • PCB Awaiting Packing: Your order is undergoing quality check and packing (typically 2 business days).
  • PCB Shipped: Order has been sent to the shipping agent (typically 1 business day until tracking information is available).

PCBA: The lead time for PCB Assembly orders is around 15 business days if all the parts are from the Seeed's OPL and around 25 business days if not. Please see below for details.

  • PCB in production: Your PCB is being produced (3 - 14 business days, see note 1).
  • BOM Processing: The procurement of components and other materials (around 15 - 20 business days from order confirmation).
  • Assembly: The boards will be assembled and shipped within 3 business days.

  • For Non-OPL orders: Since PCB production and components procurement take place at the same time, in most cases, the components will arrive after the PCBs have been manufactured. Therefore, the lead time for Non-OPL orders is time for components procurement and assembly/shipping time.
  • For OPL orders: Since all the components are sourced from our in-stock Open Parts Library, there is no procurement of components time. Therefore, the lead time for OPL orders is the PCB production time and the assembly/shipping time.


  • Note:
    1. Lead time is defined as the time from order confirmation and dispatch to the customer.
    2. PCB production takes 3 - 14 business days depending on specific order parameters, not including delays caused by problems with the order/files, but typical boards are completed within 3 to 5 days.
    3. We strongly advise customers to place orders well in advance of deadlines in case of any delays caused by problems with the order/files.
