element14 Pty Ltd
(formerly Farnell) has introduced new Robotics, Medical and Industrial Automation microsites for the Asia Pacific region. The new microsites will provide specialist tools and resources to address the needs of electronics design engineers in the region.
The new Robotics, Medical and Industrial Automation microsites will cater to the latest emerging technologies in the region and add to the company’s already successful and well-established microsites covering Wireless, Sensing, Lighting, Alternative Energy, Transportation and Instrumentation & Measurement.
The technical microsites combine proprietary intelligence with the latest information from the world’s top electronics suppliers to provide comprehensive technical knowledge and solutions for engineers who can now access design tools, featured products, white papers, training videos and articles to help them significantly accelerate their design cycles and reduce time-to-market.
According to Uma Pingali, Regional Director of North Asia and Business Development, element14, their existing six microsites have proven to be a very useful resource for customers, successfully helping them narrow down the thousands of products available to those that are best suited to their specific applications.
She adds that the new microsites are grouped according to key technology segments, providing a comprehensive selection on design resources that enable engineers to progress from block diagram concepts to solutions within a shorter time frame.
element14’s Robotics microsite features products and training videos from manufacturers such as Freescale, Microchip, Omron Industrial Automation, STMicroelectronics and Vishay to accelerate the adoption of robotics solutions.
element14’s Medical microsite leads with innovative use of analogue signal chain, embedded processing and sensing technologies from world-leading suppliers such as Altera, Fischer, Panasonic, Texas Instruments and XP Power.
The Industrial Automation microsite features popular control solutions from manufacturers such as Harting, Honeywell, Molex, Schneider and TE Connectivity encompassing PLC, temperature and process PID control, variable speed drive control, and even electromechanical relay, timer and counter control.
