Mulino, OR — Sunstone Circuits, the printed circuit board (PCB) prototype solutions provider, is coordinating efforts with NXP Semiconductors to build and certify the complete NXP parts catalog within Sunstone's PCB123 V3.2 design software. Design engineers can search the manufacturer's parts library, including certified footprints and schematic symbols, and then order parts in real time directly from Digi-Key's online database via PCB123's LiveBOM functionality.

By integrating NXP's comprehensive parts library into the Sunstone ECOsystem (SM) Design Environment, PCB designers can now conceive, design, order and accurately manufacture assembled prototypes through a single design flow, all supported by Sunstone's live customer service (24/7/365).

"By eliminating the need for designers to build out their own parts libraries, we are saving designers a tremendous amount of time and energy, which translates into greater productivity and reduced costs throughout the entire design flow," said Sunstone president and CEO, Terry Heilman.

The Sunstone ECOsystem Design Environment serves as the centralized force that brings each partner's area of expertise together to benefit designers. In turn, the Sunstone ECOsystem enables all the participating partners to better service their customers. "Digi-Key's enthusiasm about its partnership with Sunstone Circuits is enhanced as NXP Semiconductors joins forces with Sunstone in support of its initiative with PCB123," said Mark Larson, Digi-Key president and COO.
