element14, a new online technology resource and community for electronic design engineers was specifically created for electronic design engineers who are looking for technical information and tool-focused services in one source to enhance their design and development capabilities.
The site provides a vast array of product data, design tools and technology information, ensuring electronic design engineers worldwide have access to necessary information when they need it. One of the benefits 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 unique login, allowing them to customise and personalise their homepage with widgets of the applications they use most.
Google Translate has been incorporated to facilitate 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.
Users 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.
“element14 provides a very much needed one-stop resource for electronic design engineers, said Kevin Yapp, Chief Innovation Officer of Premier Farnell, the organisation behind element14. “This website provides information on a wide variety of technology materials with collaboration from a variety of electronics suppliers, academics and other experts from around the globe. element 14 is specifically 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.”
