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.

Managing Footprints With Integrated EDA Tools

02/23/2021 | Matt Walsh, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

A Library Management Cautionary Tale

02/12/2021 | Steven V. Chavez, CID+
The library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells—however you refer to them in your ecosystem—is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. After 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about footprints. One particular experience stands out.

Best Practices: Footprint Design and CAD Library Management
