Gerber Labs Makes PCBs Accessible for Next Generation Electrical Engineers


Reading time ( words)

Gerber Labs, an Orange County based engineering startup, is rolling out a platform that makes custom printed circuit boards (PCBs) accessible to electrical engineering students, hobbyists and small businesses.

PCBs traditionally have only been accessible for large businesses and manufacturers. To order PCBs you had to order in large quantities and deal with old school salesmen and overseas representatives. Gerber Labs is changing this by opening up PCBs to the consumer and small business market.

Instead of calling sales representatives or ordering on questionable websites, Gerber Labs is simplifying the process by allowing anyone to upload, order and ship a PCB with a couple clicks. No need to jump on the phone, no need to worry about time zones.

“Our goal is to alleviate one headache and that’s getting the PCB you need. If we've done that then we've done our job," said Kyle Sheng, project manager at Gerber Labs.

As part of the launch Gerber Labs is already working with universities across the country and their engineering student body to help create printed circuit boards for different competitions and project needs.
