People’s Choice Winners

The three stories that earned the most votes by December 16th won our top prize: a new iPad 3, custom PCB case, and $25 iTunes giftcard.

First Place

“I took part in the contest because circuit boards are a big part of my life. As an electrical engineer, there are few things as satisfying as seeing and bringing to life something you've designed. For me, that's a circuit board.”

Second Place

“I've used Sunstone many times over the last 10 years for my PCB fabrication needs. I like that they are stateside and on the west coast. They have been quick and responsive and have not failed in meeting my PCB needs. I will continue to use them in the future!”

Third Place

“Sunstone's tools have helped me several times to design the PCB that I have needed. The number of component footprints that are available have covered almost all the parts that I have used, saving me valuable time to work on the design rather than building the footprints I need. The best part of it all is that the design tools are FREE!”

“I’m thrilled to be the first voter winner for the Sunstone Circuits contest! My son is one of the participants and I thought I was just doing a good thing by voting for his project. This VISA gift card is just an added bonus! Thank you!” Luci Ismert

November 5 - "I work in engineering as a Design Technician and I supervise other techs. I work in Phoenix Arizona and live in Glendale Arizona. I voted because I am interested in what other people do with their PCB123 Designs." Patrick Purtill
Phoenix, AZ

“I am an engineer who lives and works in Seattle, WA. I know Steve Ranta, who I voted for, and thought he had a great story.” Matthew Arksey
Seattle, WA


“How great! Thank you so much. I am not an engineer. I work in the film and television industry in Los Angeles, CA. I voted because my cousin Steve Ranta is a fantastic engineer and I really believe in his story. He speaks highly of your products and I know he would only use the best.”
