Mouser Electronics Inc., a global authorized distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, has launched a new Engineering Development Tools Center on Mouser.com. This time-saving microsite allows developers to select from a variety of development tools for products such as microcontrollers, analog and digital ICs, LED lighting, optoelectronics, wireless, and more.
The online dev center aims to save developers time and effort by offering an online development tools selection guide, providing easy access to a wide selection of development tools from leading manufacturers. Products available include compilers, evaluation and development boards, emulators, starter kits, and reference designs.
“Engineering development tools are a key element of the design process,” says Kevin Hess, Mouser VP technical marketing. “Our new Dev Tool Center allows engineers to choose from thousands of tools, helping them find the right tool for their requirements, speeding their time to market.”
Tools can be sorted and selected by category and manufacturer. For example, embedded processor development tools can be sorted by architectures such as AVR, ARM, MSP430, and more. Categories for the sensor development tools include acceleration, current sensor, magnetic sensor, temperature, and touch sensor development tools. Developers can also review the newest design resources under the ‘Featured Development Tools’ section. Software and other downloads include Mouser’s free MultiSIM BLUE software as well as Altera’s Quartus II software, STMicroelectronics’ STM32 Java software, and the Keil Tools MDK-PRO.
