Assumptions:

  • Each 5 critical errors cause 1 re-spin, each 20 defects cause 1 re-spins, Warnings do not cause re-spins, Max 2 re-spins saved per project.
  • Clients on average manufacture 3 prototype boards.
  • A re-spin manufacturing and board cost varies based on board complexity (device count):
<1000 Devices $1,000/board
1000-3000 Devices $6,000/Board
3000-5000 Devices $10,000/board
5000 Devices $15,000/Board

 

Engineering Costs are calculated at a loaded labor rate of $80/hour:
