Offers Better User Experience and Accelerated Design Process
MULINO, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 18, 2009 — Sunstone Circuits (Sunstone), the leading printed circuit board (PCB) solutions provider, recently released PCB123® version 3.3 - the next generation of its complete circuit board design solution for the electronics design industry. As with all previous versions, PCB123 remains free.
“PCB123 v3.3 provides the additional design capabilities that PCB designers have been seeking but in an enhanced user experience package,” said Nolan Johnson, CAD/EDA marketing manager of Sunstone Circuits. “In our quest to remain the easiest PCB solutions provider to do business with, we responded to feedback from our user community by not only improving the feature set of PCB123, but also configuring the software into a more user friendly and intuitive resource. As a result, design engineers now have access to a free industrial grade CAD tool that rivals the industry leaders, all with live technical support 24/7/365.”
In support of an improved user experience and continued extreme customer service, Sunstone also developed a YouTube Channel featuring short tutorials on how to utilize PCB123 v3.3 to its full potential. Watch the videos here: http://www.youtube.com/user/SunstoneCircuits.
PCB123 version 3.3 enhancements include:
“We’re offering powerful PCB design software that can convert any file on the layout side from previous versions of PCB123, enabling designers to retain previous design work while taking care of real-time ordering available in v3.3,” said Keith Ackerman, PCB123 software architect.
World Class Design Options for All Users
As a part of the Sunstone ECOsystemTM Design Environment, PCB123 v3.3 supports a seamless design flow to design and assembly services. The Sunstone ECOsystem is a strategic resource, supported by a number of industry-leading companies, which consolidates and improves the PCB prototyping process for designers from concept-to-delivery. The ECOsystem integrates the four discrete segments of PCB prototyping:
With PCB123 v3.3 and this ECOsystem, designers can produce working prototypes in shorter times, fewer turns, and with better access to PCB manufacturing services. Designers benefit from lower costs, fewer pain points and an improved CAD software.
