How much to design the PCB of a COM Express type 6 carrier board

mulfycrowh , 08-23-2019, 04:38 PM

I started today the schematic of a caarrier biard for COM Express type 6 module.
It has:
- SSD (M.2)
- 2 ports HDMI 4K@60fps
- 1 dongle USB2.0
- 1 proprietary connector (USB 2.0 - USB 3.0 - digital I/Os - Analog inputs)
-1 LAN connector
- 1 slot MXM
- 2 ports USB 2.0
- 1 port MIDI

What would be the cost to design the PCB (I guess 6 or 8 layers)?

That is very hard to say depends on many factors (e.g. how large the board is - smaller = more expensive as it takes more time). If you have enough space, generally baseboards are not difficult and layout may need 20 - 80 hours (depends on what everything needs to be done e.g. if you provide footprints, if you are going to generate manufacturing data, etc). You can calculate number of hours and multiply this based on engineer / company rate ($15 to $100 USD/h .... generally you may be looking for someone around $40USD/h). So it can be anywhere between $800 - $3200USD
