How To Calculate Prices
CompuLab products have many configuration options. In order to avoid a table with too many entries, introduced below is a simplified method of calculating product prices. For the prices of a specific product, click on a link in the left pane.
The purpose of this document is to serve as a preliminary price evaluation tool. Prices may vary to reflect changes in component costs. The final price for a specific configuration should be obtained by issuing a Purchasing Requisition (PR), via e-mail. The PR should contain:
- Exact part number. For example: CM-i586-D64-F2-C133-N64-P-E-S-U
The part number specifies all options available for a particular product. For example:
- Product – CM-i586
- Dx – DRAM size in Mbytes
- Fx – NOR Flash size in Mbytes
- Cx – CPU speed in MHz
- Nx – NAND Flash size
- P – PCI bus support
- E – Ethernet
- S – Super-I/O
- U – USB
Cards price depends on ordered quantity. Quantity prices are per-batch. For example, to have 1000-units price, the order should be placed for 1000 units at once. The cards will all be manufactured and shipped in one pass.
Links on the left pane open a page with specifications of prices per product. For each product, there is a part number specifying the features included in the minimal configuration. The price for this minimal configuration in 1000-unit quantity is provided. Following, there is a list for upgraded features relevant to the specific product and the price of each feature, in 1000-unit quantity. At the end, there are the multipliers for smaller quantities.
The minimum configuration specified for the CM-i586 includes 16MB DRAM, 1M FLASH and 100MHz CPU. It costs $91 for 1000-unit quantity. If you need a price for 500 units of CM-i586 with a 133 MHz CPU and 32 Mbytes DRAM, then:
- 133 MHz CPU adds $7
- 32 Mbytes DRAM adds $6
- 500-unit quantity has x 1.1 multiplier (relative to the 1000-unit price)
Therefore the unit price for the requested configuration is:
( 91 + 7 + 6 ) * 1.1 = $114.4
Prices don’t include shipment costs. Shipment is charged according to destination and weight. Light weight shipment to U.S, Canada and Europe – $95, to most of other countries – $115.
Price does not include import duties and VAT. These depend on customs regulations in destination country and may be charged by the courier.
