Farnell element14 adds online design tools
Premier Farnell has updated its online resource for embedded and PCB design engineers, known as the Knode, on its element14 website.
According to the distributor, it is increasing the technical content and resources for embedded design and PCB design flows with access to detailed information, app notes, datasheets, videos and downloads
There will be development tools and embedded software from manufacturers like ARM, Freescale, Micrium, Microchip and TI. Plus exclusive development kits, PCB design software, schematics and CAD models.
Following the recent announcement of the group’s acquisition of Embest, the integration of CooCox IDE will enable design engineers to leverage the Knode as a one-stop solutions resource centre for all their component, and now systems, design requirements.
“We have integrated the innovative Coocox Integrated Development Suite onto the Knode to provide yet another open source design environment for design engineers and make it as easy as possible for them to write, compile, debug and test their designs faster and more efficiently,” said David Shen, group chief technology officer, element14.
Launched in 2011, the Knode now features over 1000 development kits supported by more than 11,000 pieces of related technical content and resources including application notes, simulation models, reference manuals, code examples and tens of thousands of CAD models that free to download.
