PentaLogix Announces It’s No Longer Just For Software

Jan 16, 2012

PentaLogix, a leading software company in Oregon, known for ViewMate™ Gerber-viewer and SmartDFM™ design-rule-check software, announced that through a series of well-chosen partnerships it can now service PCB industry needs from design through final PCB assembly.  These partnerships allow engineers and purchasing agents to have access to all the highest quality PCB products and services by visiting a single online site:

PentaLogix customers now have immediate access not only to its trusted software, but also to Prototype Quick-Turn PCBs and production PCB services.  In addition, PentaLogix has recently entered into a partnership with Newark/element14, a leading electronics distributor, to provide timesaving design options on each of their websites.  From the PentaLogix website, engineers needing components now have access to Newark/element14 and its top electronics brands.  And from the Knode, the intelligent search & knowledge tool on element14’s community site, engineers have access to the many PentaLogix services.

When it comes to actual assembly, for either prototype or production, PentaLogix partners with PCB Assembly Express to provide high quality Quick-Turn services here in the USA, including complex boards and/or those with hi-rel requirements.  For those with more routine needs or lower cost requirements, offshore manufacturing facilities provide quick turnaround times with no sacrifice in quality.

“The beauty of this,” says Agustin Araujo, president of PentaLogix, “is that engineers can get however limited or detailed services they want, simply by working directly through PentaLogix.  In the past, an engineer usually had to go to one company for software, another for prototyping/fabrication and then had to find trusted sources for components and PCB assembly services.  Our new system eliminates both time and frustration.  We have already researched the sources, formed the partnerships, and set up the online mechanisms.  It couldn’t be easier, or more cost-effective for the user.  And that goes for DIY engineers as well as for larger companies.  It’s all done through the PentaLogix site.”

According to Araujo, what gives substantial benefit to the customer, in addition to the obvious convenience, is the high level of quality that permeates the alliances.  “Our goal,” he continued, was to make it as fast, easy, and accessible for customers.  That means from do-it-yourselfers needing one board to major manufacturers needing prototypes and assembly services, but always with quality as well as convenience in mind.  And we’ve done that.  Initial customer feedback has been fantastic, and obviously they’re the ones we strive to please,” concluded Araujo.  For more information, or to experience the system yourself, visit
