System Plus Consulting has developed a powerful costing tool to evaluate the cost of any Printed Circuit Board:

From single to multilayer printed circuits boards

PCB Price+performs the necessary cost simulations to make strategic decisions.

From a short but detailed data input list, with no need for technical expertise, PCB Price+ will help you:

  • Evaluate a PCB technology through costs evolution
  • Calculate the production cost and selling price of a PCB, depending on manufacturer types
  • Identify the best supply sources/costs according to technology and volume and their evolution
  • Evaluate the relationships between a technology, a finish option, manufacturing cost, selling price
  • Make the best technological choice to fit your delivery schedule.

PCB Price+ includes a technology generator wizard with:

  • Material FR4 (Tg 140°, 150° or 170°)
  • Single side or multilayers, from 1 to 20 copper layers, thickness from 17.5, 35, 70 or 105µm
  • Number and type of drilling, mechanical process or laser process
  • Type of finishing (OSP, HASL, HASL Lead Free, ENIG, Immersion Silver, Immersion Tin)
  • Panellization
  •  …

PCB Price + can calculate the real price impacts of change to layer count, copper thickness, change of manufacturing country, or the increasing of raw material costs, such as gold or copper.



PCB Price+ delivers the following results:

  • Technology cost breakdown (cost per square decimeter)
  • Substrate cost breakdown detailed into building cost, equipment cost, consumables cost, salaries,
  • Selling prices versus time
  • Detailed data

What measurement unit does PCB Price+ use?
PCB Price+ uses millimeters as its measurement unit.


What copper layer thicknesses does PCB Price+ support?
PCB Price+ supports four different copper layer thicknesses: 17.5 µm, 35 µm, 70 µm and 105 µm.


How many metal layers does PCB Price+ support?
PCB Price+ can simulate up to 20 metal layers.


What laminate technology is available in PCB Price+?
PCB Price+ supports FR4 technology.


Is the glass transition temperature, Tg, taken into account in PCB Price+?
Yes, Tg is taken into account from 130°C to 170°C.



What is the difference between the site license and the corporate license?
The site license is for all employees in just one location. The corporate license is for all employees from the same company worldwide.


Once I get the license, do I need to pay something else?
The license includes maintenance for the first year. After the first year, if you wish to keep receiving our support and updates, you will need to pay the maintenance fees only. It will cost between 1,000€ and 3,500€ depending on your license type and tool.


Why should I pay for maintenance after the first year? Can I get maintenance for free?
Thanks to the maintenance, you get updates to the tools and database every year. Maintenance also includes support from our team.

The first year, the update is included in the license fees. You don’t have to add any other fee. However, after this first year, you will have to purchase our yearly maintenance to get our tools and database updates.


Can I test the tools before buying it?
System Plus Consulting doesn’t provide any trial version but you can schedule a one-hour WebEx demo with the team to get a better understanding of which tool you might need.
