Received PCB quote - Damn !!!, 6 LAYER is expensive.

I received the quote from PCB Power today and the quotation is quite expensive due to 6 layers. (The idea to fit it in a ready made enclosure to save cost is ironically going to increase product expenses :P ). Also due to the minimum PCB size requirement of the manufacturer being 20mmx20mm we had to go with panel PCB with 5 PCB in each panel. So i have placed order for 5 PCB. Still have to do payment through bank transfer as their payment gateway does not have support for my company bank netbanking option for online payment.

Expected delivery by 15-April-2017.

Thanks! That’s a great advice Harsha. I already started selling components on E-bay. they don’t ask for TIN number for start selling. currently only selling few ICs. with minimum margin including packaging cost.

Abhi That’s great. :)

Can you post your seller page as a thread so others can make a note?

Can we consider adding radio frequency TX/RX in this device so that when vehicle gets stolen it alarms nearby vehicle with similar device??

In current design, there is Bluetooth 3.0 support. But the functionality you are thinking of can be provided by adding a little intelligence on server side. We can calculate who is nearby using a Geofencing algorithm and alert that device owner who is nearby, saying that a vehicle is being stolen.
