(formerly Farnell) have announced that over 60,000 semiconductor tools, IC's, discretes and passives from industry manufactures such as Analog Devices, Bourns, Fairchild, Kemet, Microchip, NXP, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments and Vishay. Furthermore a selection of over 1,500 development kits are also available. Analog, power management, MCU and FGPA development are just some example of the kits available.
Production and electronic design engineers can choose easily from a wide range of semiconductor tools and passive components for
use in lighting, medical, wireless, telecommunications, smart metering and contract manufacturing. The new web search feature of Element 14's has made life easier for users as they can now filter products according to certain attributes. Information can therefore be obtained faster and in the most convenient format.
Featured products include:
TMS320F2812PGFA - Texas Instruments 32-Bit digital signal controller with flash. This is a high performance solution that demands control apps such as medical, aerospace and defence, motor control and smart matering solutions. Other features include a 32-bit CPU, and on-chip flash with an external memory interface and a high performances static CMOS technology system.
Microchip MCP1630 Boost Mode LED Driver Demo Board. This is a converter used for power LED applications. The demo board provides a constant current source of 350mA or 700 mA and is compact with a high output power (max 30W).
