Many people know there were charges for NRE, but don’t know the exact process.
So angel wants to introduce the detail process of non recurring engineering.
This will include creating the photo-plot films for etching the board, setting up the drill machines to drill the board, programming the routers to route the finished board out of the PCB panel.
There are many steps in creating a board and machines have to be programmed, jigs made etc.

The charge of NRE in PCB fabrication quote has different between local PCB manufacturer with oversea ones.
