Gerber File Option Added to Sunstone's PCB123 Order Process


Reading time ( words)

Sunstone Circuits, printed circuit board (PCB) solutions provider for prototypes, medium volume and production quantities, has launched a better way to get free Gerber files when placing a PCB order through the PCB123 free CAD tool.

As always, PCB123 users can easily design and order prototypes and production through Sunstone's full manufacturing service line by clicking on the "ORDER" button inside PCB123 to send the design straight to Sunstone’s OneQuote form to allow the user to make all of the PCB choices they need for their design. In addition to all the normal PCB parameters users also have a choice of engineering level and can either build for Prototype (Limited Review) or jump over to Sunstone's PCBpro service for complex services or full-blown production.

In the past when the user wished to receive a set of Gerber files for their completed order, an email or phone call to our Support team was required. Now simply checking a box in the order process allows users to have their Gerber files ordered and sent without any further steps on the users’ part.  Perfect for the designer that wants to keep a library of their completed and tooled Gerber files. 

PCB123’s free CAD Tool is part of a suite of PCB solutions from Sunstone which includes RF manufacturing capabilities, in-house ENIG capabilities, choices of lead times and a vast array of manufacturing enhancements for all of the Sunstone services ValueProto, PCBExpress, PCBpro and PCB123.  Also because every PCB design needs components Sunstone offers Bundled Assembly, SMT Stencils with or without nano coating all through our OneQuote form. With all of these offerings, Sunstone Circuits is continuing to differentiate themselves as the preferred comprehensive PCB solutions provider within the marketplace.

A New Sourcing Paradigm

09/20/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We’ve seen many changes over the past few years, and nowhere are they more evident than in the world of sourcing components. Sourcing has become one of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers and design engineers today. Gone are the days of procuring parts from a single source, and communication between stakeholders and distributors is critical. But as we learned in a conversation with I-Connect007 columnist Kelly Dack, PCB designers can use certain layout strategies to plan for the unexpected, such as leaving extra real estate so that smaller components can be replaced by larger, readily available parts if the originals become “unobtainium.”

Happy’s Design Tips for Material Conservation

08/25/2022 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
For this issue, Happy Holden provided a range of options for designers who are seeking to conserve materials in their next design. He also offered an example of the relative cost index, or RCI, that he developed at HP exclusively for PCB design. With this RCI, designers can figure out the relative cost of a new design compared to an eight-layer through-hole board. We hope you can use this handy formula on your next design job.
