--- Quote from: SiliconWizard on April 02, 2023, 09:15:05 pm ---In most european countries, anything military/aerospace/safety or security-critical stuff usually uses "high-quality" fabs, either on their own ground or with what is considered the industry-standard of quality in Europe, which is basically Germany or Switzerland. While not that many, we DO have a number of very high-profile PCB manufacturers in Europe. And they sure have business.

I think you are confusing high quality with expensive.

No, you are. A small logic problem as it seems.
High-quality fabs do exist, they consistently deliver great quality and I can name a few (although I'm not endorsed so I don't see the point of free advertisement) with which I had absolutely zero issue. And they are definitely expensive.

That doesn't mean that all expensive fabs deliver high quality (ah, logic.). Sorry to hear about your bad experience but certainly the fabs you mention do not qualify for some reason. Don't hesitate to mention names (that wouldn't be free advertisement), that certainly could help a few avoid the shaky ones. Also, do not necessarily assume that all issues were coming from the manufacturer. Sometimes even the greatest fabs can't deliver reliable results with bad designs. (But in that case, the good ones will definitely warn you.)

You completely missed my point. These are the places where military customers go for their PCBs. I won't mention names. Its some years since I did any military work. My specific experiences would no longer be relevant.
