Bangalore, India, September 11, 2014: Today marks the official launch of the element14 Design Center a new resource for engineers that offers the most comprehensive range of development tool information alongside product details and supporting material.
Rich application and product information, including 360 degree images, videos and downloads, are supplemented by stock availability and price, manufacturer details and engineer comments from element14’s leading community. The Design Center also includes links to supporting documentation, technical data sheets and forum posts, helping engineers make the most of their Dev Tools and solve problems as they occur.
Developed based on customer feedback and research, the site provides an industry leading search and select functionality by keyword and part number, filtering by manufacturer, core architecture and silicon family. Customers can purchase the development tools they require by automatically adding them to their basket on the transactional site.
Quintin Komaromy, Global Head of Strategic Marketing at element14, said, “The new element14 Design Center offers everything a design engineer could ask for, providing the latest development tools and kits with best in class application and product data all in one place. We asked engineers what information they need to bring designs to market quickly and efficiently and the new site offers everything to support each stage of the design process.
“Following the enormous success of the 250,000 strong element14 Community as a site for engineer’s discussion and collaboration the Design Center was a logical move to support our strategic proposition.
“The site already supports embedded technologies from wireless to sensing and IoT, and over time the site will enable more content and greater functionality to support engineers throughout the design process. In addition to the Design Center the market’s largest range of development tools and kits is also available from the element14 transactional sites for same day dispatch to virtually any global location.”
The launch of the Design Center follows the recently announced volume price break structure on semiconductor and connector components, all of which support customers throughout the design process and into the prototype and production stage.
To celebrate the launch of the Design Center, element14 has produced a fun development kit card game – to request your free pack of Dev Kit Trump Cards from the Design Center.
All development tool products are available with same day dispatch, quality data sheets and application notes and product pages list a range of associated accessories. Additionally 24/5 live tech support is available for any queries.
