TO help design engineers decipher the wave of new and developing technologies hitting the electronics market, Farnell InOne , the international distributor of electronic and industrial components, has launched a new 'Technology First' initiative.
The 'Technology First' series begins with the launch of a new catalogue of development kits from the leading microprocessor suppliers.
The catalogue is an industry-first in providing engineers with a platform for unbiased choice and comparison, showing all the latest microprocessor offerings, such as 32-bit ARM core processors, in one place.
The twenty-page microprocessor catalogue lists development kits from ten leading microprocessor suppliers, including Microchip, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments and Freescale.
The wide range of kits allow engineers to develop their designs from concept to solution without incurring full-scale production costs whilst the catalogue's simple format enables them to compare features and benefits alongside price and performance.
Other technologies, which the ‘Technology First’ series will focus on later in the year, include optoelectronics and power/analogue signal paths, providing topical information on a number of areas including architecture and core design.
Supporting technical information, associated links and reference material will be available to download from Electronics Design World, Farnell InOne's online community for electronic engineers at www.farnellinone.com.au and www.farnellinone.co.nz .
Farnell InOne wants to share their technical expertise and offer design engineers the support they need in adopting these new technologies.
