PCB Layout


Our seasoned PCB layout designers are some of the best around! You know the kind that uses shortcut keys rather than mouse clicks!

From 2 layer consumer products to 40+ layer multi-gigabit backplanes, you’re in good hands with our IPC recognized layout designers (CID/CID+). Whether your design requires complex technologies such as: blind/buried/micro vias, buried capacitance, precisely controlled impedance, fiber-weave direction control, multi-laminate, or mixed technology stacks – Fidus can do it.  Perhaps you don’t need the latest everything, but cost or other factors are limiting your board construction – we’ll still make that work. Regardless of the design, we always take a practical approach to giving you the best design possible.

Working with our PCB Layout team means not worrying about DFM/DFA rules, high-speed routing, high-current routing, and layer stack-ups.  We’ll take care of it all.  Check out our Capabilities.
