PCB123™ is everything you need to design and order your prototype printed circuit boards. Organizations such as MIT and Purdue University, research institutions such as Sandia National Labs and the US Naval Research Lab, and businesses including Intel, Hewlett-Packard, and General Electric use PCB123 Design Software.
PCB123 provides the complete circuit board solution, design through order, for your prototyping and production PCB needs. PCB123 interactively checks your design against our manufacturing tolerances (DRC), and also quotes your board as you design. You know the cost and lead time for your design even as you create it. Click the in-application ORDER button, and your boards are delivered in days.
“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.
PCB123 version 3.3 enhancements include:
- PCB 123 v2 users can now convert any layout design files into PCB v3.3
- Full customization via the new PCB 123 Software Development Kit
- Dynamic bill of materials (BOM) generated and updated as the user designs
- Real-time quotes for board fabrication and parts.
- Order both boards and parts direct from the new and improved PCB123 interface
- More fabrication options and services
“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:
- Knowledge – PCB designer expertise
- Tools – design packages and software such as PCB123 v3.3
- Libraries and Parts – sourcing and tracking of PCB components
- Fabrication – manufacturing capability and expertise
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.
