  1. 1. Delivering Engineering Design Solutions<br />Introducing the Virtual Workspace<br />1<br />
  2. 2. Engineering Design Ecosystem<br />Our Vision: Become a leading supplier of engineering solutions<br /> Problem statement: Engineers face a complex design ecosystem<br /> Premier Farnell helps simplify component acquisition<br />Electronic System Design Ecosystem<br />Electronic Component Suppliers<br />Development Hardware<br />System Software Elements<br />HW Assembly and Manufacture<br />Technical Information and Libraries<br />Design<br />Engineer<br />Engineering Design Services<br />HW Design Tools<br />SW Design Tools<br />Testing and Test Equipment<br />!<br />2<br />
  3. 3. Introducing the Virtual Workspace<br /> Enables Delivery of Value-Added Engineering Solutions<br />Design Engineering Benefits :<br /><ul><li>Productivity
  4. 4. Design Quality
  5. 5. Ease-of-use</li></ul>The Virtual Workspace:<br /><ul><li>On-line delivery environment for design solutions</li></ul>Virtual Workspace Demonstration<br />3<br />
  6. 6. The Virtual Workspace <br />Embedded Smart Meter Designer seeks information on Zigbee. From the home page of the Virtual Workspace the designer can:<br /><ul><li> Find out what the Virtual Workspace is and how it can help with this design
  7. 7. Select a “room” in which to start this search, depending on the stage of the design process.
  8. 8. See a list of CAD Tools and element14 trusted PCB service providers</li></ul>4<br />
  9. 9. Development Kits<br /><ul><li>The designer begins by performing a product search for a specific application
  10. 10. The designer finds a Zigbee compatible development kit and adds it to the scrapbox
  11. 11. The page automatically refreshes showing only related content
  12. 12. From the Learning Center, the designer finds a “How-To” video and reads the application notes to ensure the dev kit works in the design application
  13. 13. In Design Elements, the user downloads the kit’s schematics and example application code
  14. 14. And the user is notified of related content in other rooms</li></ul>5<br />5<br />
  15. 15. Operating Systems & Stacks<br /><ul><li>Our designer goes to the OS & Stacks room which is automatically constrained to show only items related to previous selections
  16. 16. The user sees a compatible Real Time Operating System (RTOS) and stack in the products view and adds these to the scrapbox
  17. 17. After doing so, the Learning Center reveals a “How-To” on building a custom I/O driver. This content can also be added to the scrapbox
  18. 18. The user notices an upcoming webinar of interest</li></ul>6<br />6<br />
  19. 19. Development Tools<br /><ul><li>Our designer goes to the Development Tools room which is further constrained by the previous selections
  20. 20. The Learning Center reveals a video review comparing several software development tools
  21. 21. The videos inform the user on the best Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  22. 22. The designer posts a question in the forum: “Does anyone have a Code Composer test script to debug my Zigbee interface?”
  23. 23. The user receives a prompt answer from an expert from the element14 community</li></ul>7<br />7<br />
  24. 24. Scrapbox - Products and Shopping Cart<br /><ul><li>The designer’s parts list now contains a dev kit, RTOS & stack, and IDE; a complete solution for this project phase.
  25. 25. With one click the user can send these items to an element14 shopping cart
  26. 26. Our designers shopping cart contains a combination of hardware, operating system, and software for purchase and download
  27. 27. element14 can provide all the ecosystem elements needed to complete the design</li></ul>8<br />
  28. 28. Scrapbox – Content & Projects<br />Content<br /><ul><li>Our designer has collected valuable documentation such as </li></ul> videos, application notes, CAD symbols and footprints, <br /> schematics, and even sample code <br /><ul><li>Through the journey, the user has added this </li></ul> technical content to the scrapbox or “project”<br /><ul><li>The content serves as a template giving</li></ul>the designer a head start on his design<br />Project<br /><ul><li>The designer can now send all the scrapbox</li></ul> items into a new or existing project<br />
  29. 29. Projects<br /><ul><li>The designer can securely share the project with collaborators (including the design manager, of course)
  30. 30. The project materials form the basis of an upcoming design review
  31. 31. This saves design engineers hours of preparation time!</li></li></ul><li> And More…<br /><ul><li>The Virtual Workspace experience doesn’t end there!
  32. 32. Designers can return to evaluate CAD Tools, find PCB Prototyping & Assembly Services, compare Test & Measurement Equipment, and explore element14 recommended Simulation Tools</li></ul>11<br />
  33. 33. The Virtual Workspace…<br /><ul><li>Improves engineering design productivity by providing a single resource for all design needs
  34. 34. Raises the quality of the design by providing fast access to accurate technical information and community expertise
  35. 35. Enhanced the overall design experienceby unifying community, content, and commerce in a sequence that is logical to engineers</li></ul>12<br />
