Hi Robert, So let's assume we have discussed some requirements and accordingly the board design costs X$. Now each time I need to buy that board, the design cost is included or is the design cost only payed once while designing stage and I only pay afterwards for the board implementation/HW. So for example, the board cost X$; 0.4X$ for design and 0.6$ for the implementation.Now if a week later I needed 10 PCBs of that same designed board. Do I pay 0.6X * 10 or X$ * 10 ...?Note: I am sorry if the question seems primitive or there is already some rule for that .. I just haven't really gone through that before. I have only been using development boards/kits but never actually moved to the production step. And now I need, after the design-stage and testing, to have a mass production of that board. So that is why those details matter very much at this point. Thanks a lot Robert.
