I'm looking at the costs of plating the leads for molded plastic electronic packages. Would anyone be willing to share what the cost is (cost to you if you do it yourself or the price you pay if you have it done) to have lead/tin solder plated onto assembled packages. I'm interested in PQFP packages and TSOP packages, both at production volumes.

We have done cost analysis of this step for several different components. Our estimate for this process is approximately 8 cents per package.
