Online PCB prototyping service from CadSoft
CadSoft Computer has released an extended version of the PCB prototyping services ULP for users of its Eagle PCB design software.
The design software connects users to local PCB services on the element14 website.
In Europe, users can access the prototype PCB fabrication services of Eurocircuits.
In the US there is a choice of prototype PCB fabrication services offered by Pentalogix and Sunstone Circuits, and prototype PCB assembly services offered through PCB Assembly Express and Screaming Circuits.
After selecting the prototyping partner, customers can individualise their quote request.
The Eagle tool transfers the design data automatically to the partner’s online quoting engine. According top the supplier, a prototype can be delivered in 24 hours.
“We have selected our PCB service partners with best care to provide our customers with a reliable, professional and high-quality service,” said David Shen, Premier Farnell’s Group Chief Technology Officer.
“Customers in the Americas can order their fully assembled prototypes through our partners PCB Assembly Express and Screaming Circuits. With this integrated service, EAGLE not only saves money but also a lot of time,” said Shen.

The ULP works for EAGLE version 5.10 and higher.
