Printed Circuit Boards

Pacific West America, Inc (PWA) fabricates printed ciruit boards at very competitive pricing. Our quality is excellent and we work well with engineers that are still in the design process and need a supplier that works well with them as they get the final design established. We can take your fab drawing or gerbers and provide a recommended panel drawing to maximize efficiency for automated assembly. We are most competitive on 4 to 8 layer boards in mid to high volume. Prices for start up quantities are reasonable as well. Engineers designing boards that have RF Connectors mounted on them find our expertise in designing and selling RF Connectors a valuable resource. Many of our boards are used in antennas or connect to antennas through RF cables. We can offer special cables that have waterproof airtight seals for rugged environments.
