Customers can research and purchase online through the new software section of the element14 Design Center, enhancing the existing proposition to support engineers throughout the design process with an extensive market-leading range of development kits and tools.

element14 has invested in new support capabilities for prospective software customers in the form of a Certified Software Applications team to deliver a rapid response to their technical questions. Additionally, supporting the customer through the purchasing decision is a range of related technical guides and tutorial videos.

“Software is becoming a more significant part of electronic design today in terms of the time and resources dedicated to it, and this new capability ensures element14 is set up to meet the evolving needs of engineers,” said David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell. “We are continually working to improve the customer experience and, through our unique e-delivery options, our customers will be able to instantly activate, download and install software from multiple suppliers for the first time in our industry. The time-to-market window is shrinking, and this new delivery method ensures our customers can spend more time on their designs instead of waiting for their software to arrive. It’s an approach that is redefining the software space, and ensuring element14 continues to support its customers at every stage of the development process, from early stage design right through to production.”
