element14 has launched the element14 knode, a new online design platform that is designed to address the needs of electronic design engineers.
The new launch is part of element14's strategy to provide engineering design solutions and driving business to the Web and growth in emerging markets.
Providing one interface to a world of engineering design solutions, element14 knode has the ability to support the complete design flow from concept to final production.
What makes element14 knode unique is its ability to allow engineers to research, design, develop and prototype manufacture in a single, intelligent environment.
Equipped with these abilities, engineers can ensure that products get to market more quickly. Also, valuable engineering resources can be focused on application design and IP creation by automating the configuration of product design flow solutions.
Single on-line platform
element14 notes that design engineers have to visit multiple sites in order to collect relevant technical information and assemble the correct hardware and software solutions for their design.
These activities can be reduced by element14 knode that provides a single online platform for performing all of these actions.
The solution can automate the creation of explicit dependencies and inter-relationships with other system level components based on an engineer's initial specification and this facilitates quick building of a custom design flow.
element14 is part of the Premier Farnell group.
"The element14 knode offers a world of solutions in one single interface and is another exciting industry first for us, offering a new and different approach to design solutions. Innovation is vital for design engineers and as their partner in innovation, we are re-defining the delivery of the solutions they need," said Harriet Green, CEO of Premier Farnell.
