January 2017 • The PCB Design Magazine 63 5 Top 10 Most-Read Design Articles of 2016 Every January, I like to go back through the last year and see which articles had the highest number of views. They're usually the articles that bring you PCB design and industry infor- mation that's relevant to your job. Check out the most-read PCB design articles from 2016. 6 Sales and Marketing with DownStream Technologies From its inception, Down- Stream Technologies has been a new kind of soft- ware tool company. Down- Stream's post-processing tools address one of the most unpopular parts of the design process: documen- tation. DownStream's CEO Rick Almeida discusses some of his firm's market- ing and sales methods, the trends that he sees, and the influence of the Internet on marketing. 7 Ucamco Releases Integr8tor v2016.12 Ucamco has launched the v2016.12 maintenance release of Integr8tor. This release features impor- tant extensions and enhancements to existing functionality and addresses a num- ber of software in- consistencies that were reported by our Integr8tor user base. 8 Sunstone Circuits Makes Shift in Strategy, Offerings Sunstone has recently made a shift in capabilities that will enable a move into the RF and micro- wave space. At PCB West, I caught up with Sun- stone's David Warren, and we discussed details of this change and how they plan to approach such a com- petitive marketplace. 9 Much Ado About Sales and Marketing We at I-Connect007 recently surveyed our readers to get a bet- ter idea of what com- pany leaders thought about sales and mar- keting. The results were informative, at times surprising, and even a bit disappointing, especially when some of the participants reported that they had no sales and marketing plan at all. J T-Tech Releases IsoPro 4.0 T-Tech Inc., the manu- facturer of the Quick Cir- cuit rapid prototyping system, has launched IsoPro 4.0. IsoPro 4.0 edits and converts Ger- ber, Excellon Drill, and DXF files for use by the Quick Circuit prototyp- ing systems in order to fabricate circuit boards.
