element14 publishes insight from its portfolio of leading partners in a new resource for engineers

design tips book series 1.jpg

element14, The Development Distributor, works with the world’s leading electronic component and single board computer companies. Thanks to these strong partnerships, element14 has a deep understanding and design knowledge that allows the company to provide consistent and reliable support to customers with differing design needs, as their projects move from concept through to design. To help engineers bring their ideas to life faster, element14 has curated design ideas and tips from some of the world’s leading manufacturers in a new book that provides inspiration to engineers developing ideas.

element14 recognises that the Research and Design phase of a project is critical to success. Many members of the element14 team are engineers themselves, who are ideally placed to understand the information and resources that fellow designers need. A central part of element14’s offering as the Development Distributor is the breadth of components, hardware and tools on offer to support engineers through their own research and design processes.

Steve Carr, Global Head of Marketing explained, “To provide insight and additional support, element14 has developed a new research and design booklet which features best practice tips for design engineers, research and design case studies and an insight into the design methodology used by element14, the number one manufacturer of development kits.”

At the electronica show in Europe from 8-11th November, element14 is presenting the ‘World of Electronics’ on their stand. The new research and design booklet will be launched on the first day of the show and will be available from the dedicated research and design booth on the element14 stand and online from https://www.element14.com/designbooks. For engineers wanting a hands on experience there is a software station running design programme demos as well as active examples of products created by some of element14’s customers.
