Routing


The final manufacturing step to complete your PCB order is to remove each board from the larger panel upon which it was fabricated. Depending on the method of assembly and your assembly partner chosen, one of these three options will meet your needs. 

During the manufacturing process, Sunstone offers three options for routing:

  • Individual
    The board perimeter is routed to the outline and size provided. For ValueProto®  product, this outline must be a continuous route path using an 0.093” diameter router. For route paths that require smaller notches and arcs, these are available for with a router diameter down to 0.031.”
  • Palletization
    Combine the boards into an array using tabs at the board edge or tabs with perf holes (optional). This option will space the boards approximately 0.1” apart. A standard (1/2") frame is added to the perimeter of the array. This selection can be helpful for boards being assembled by automated means.
  • V-Score
    Combine the boards into an array separated by only a score line for break apart after assembly. Jump scoring available for the layouts that require scoring and are not a classic array.
