Sunstone offers two options to allow you to specify how your designs are to be built. These Engineering Level choices "Limited Review" and "Full Review - (NRE)" give you the flexibility to communicate how Sunstone should handle your particular design.
Limited Review: This Engineering level is perfect for the order that does not require additional up front engineering. This might be a design that is a proof of concept, fit test board, prototype, a well reviewed design or simply a design that has had a DFMplus pre order review conducted. The benefits of this service are:
Orders placed with the Limited Review option will be processed through tooling without making any edits to the files and with limited upfront scrutiny we will only check for the following (findings would result in the order being put on hold for clarification):
This level of engineering does not include:
We check the design for:
We may make adjustments to insure manufacturability for (when possible):
Please ensure that all of the files specified on your order are contained in your uploaded files (proper number of copper layers, silk layers and soldermask layers).
Full Review (NRE): This engineering level provides additional checks of your files and print notes to ensure that the design is manufacturable, compare the order form to the prints, allow for tooling edits for manufacturability and functionality. Perfect for orders that require higher levels of rigor (production quantities, panelization, higher layer counts etc.), peace of mind for the designer, or more complex designs. An NRE charge is applied to all new orders (does not apply to reorders). Benefits of selecting the Engineering Review (NRE) :
