Sunstone Circuits®

“For 40 years, Sunstone Circuits has been committed to meeting the needs of our customers by providing the best and most efficient PCB design experience from quote to delivery,” said Sunstone’s CEO, Terry Heilman. “Last year was another record-setting year for the Sunstone team, all highly focused and committed to delivering the best possible customer experience, each and every day. We launched several new and innovative products and services, all aimed to make the design engineer’s life easier and more productive. As a team, we’re excited and ready for another record-setting year in 2012.”

In 2011, Sunstone strengthened their commitment to quality by launching several new products and services.
Examples include:

• The addition of Rogers 4350 material to the Quickturn product line
• A new CAD conversion service allowing direct upload of PCB native design files
• SMT stencils when placing an order for Quickturn, Full Feature, and PCB123® products
• The addition of 25,000 parts to PCB123, making the total over 500,000 – more than twice the competition

These new additions join Bundled Assembly, PCB Design Software and Free DFM in an expanding suite of PCB solutions for design engineers. With all of these products and services, Sunstone Circuits continues to differentiate themselves as a complete PCB solutions provider within the marketplace.

It’s that commitment to quality and on-time delivery that keeps customers coming back to Sunstone Circuits, year after year.  "I have been using Sunstone since 2004, and I can honestly tell you that there is no other PCB company that comes close to providing the level of excellent customer satisfaction that Sunstone has, over the years,” says Eric Rubio, Sr. Engineer, Johnson Controls Inc. “Even though there are many companies that can manufacture a printed circuit board, I exclusively rely on Sunstone Circuits because of their simple and intuitive PCB ordering system, great turn-around times on expedited orders, competitive prices, and excellent customer service."

Also, Sunstone has now partnered with Newark’s element14 to deliver bare printed circuit board (PCB) prototyping services to customers in the Americas through element14’s Knode, an intelligent search and knowledge tool helping engineers select and purchase the right solutions for designs. Through this partnership, design engineers can access Sunstone’s prototyping products and services to create high quality test copies of unpopulated or “bare” PCBs prior to ordering the finished electronic product, allowing engineers to conserve resources through much shorter design cycles.

“For 40 years, Sunstone Circuits has been committed to meeting the needs of our customers by providing the best and most efficient PCB design experience from quote to delivery,” said Sunstone’s President and CEO, Terry Heilman. “In addition to www.sunstone.com, this new partnership with element14 is just one more way Sunstone can help the design engineer streamline the overall design cycle and drastically improve productivity by offering solutions through one consolidated online resource, the element14 Knode.”

The partnership with element14 enables design engineers to boost productivity dramatically using the Knode, with instant access to quotes and high-quality printed circuit board prototypes in as little as 24 hours. “Sunstone Circuits is the ideal PCB solutions partner for the element14 community and enhances an already vast portfolio of design solutions available through the element14 Knode,” said David Shen, group senior vice president and global head of Technical Marketing, Premier Farnell. “Providing access to Sunstone’s quality, on-time prototyping solutions through our consolidated e-platform further underscores element14’s commitment to connecting engineers to relevant design components, information and the latest technologies.”
