The element14 website, developed by Farnell , is a new online technology resource and community for electronic design engineers. The element14 website is created for electronic design engineers who are looking for a wealth of unbiased technical information and tool-focused services in one source to enhance their design and development capabilities. element14 uses web 2.0 functionality to facilitate interaction, collaboration and information sharing among users.
element14 provides an array of product data, design tools and technology information, ensuring electronic design engineers worldwide have access to necessary information when they need it. An added benefit of element14 is the ability to collaborate with select engineers about design techniques or seek new technology developments from experts in the field.
Users have their own login for the element14 website, allowing them to customise and personalise their homepage with widgets of the applications they use most. Google Translate has been incorporated to facilitate even greater interaction and enable users of different languages to converse in real time, breaking down language barriers to help increase the availability of resources for this global community.
element14 website users can participate in the community by posting comments, podcasts and videos that can help to drive traffic to their site, using referral links to raise awareness about their individual profile, academia, technology development or business. element 14 is built for electronic design engineers, design students, suppliers and journalists looking for the opportunity to share technical information and have access to all the latest electronic design engineering resources.
