Mouser Electronics has launched a new Product Knowledge Centre (PKC) training site on covering the entire lighting ecosystem.
The new site is completely redesigned to help design engineers find the latest lighting advancements, trends and supporting product information in as few clicks as possible. It complements Mouser’s broad line card, which includes Cree, Avago Technologies, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, Texas Instruments, STMicroelectronics, Maxim Integrated Products, and other top suppliers of LEDs, drivers, lenses, connectors, circuit protection, and thermal protection.
Kevin Hess, Mouser Vice President of Technical Marketing, sheds light (pun alert!) on the overall site design. “Ultimately, we wanted to create a new PKC interface that was intuitive enough for design engineers to navigate without having to experience any learning curve, allowing them to find the exact information they need even faster. At Mouser, we realize the one component that’s always in short supply is time, and that’s exactly what our newest PKC delivers – a quicker, in-depth, more user-friendly lighting resource.” An illuminating statement I’m sure you’ll agree!!
The training site resource centre spans three areas: products, applications and design engineering resources. The Lighting Product Selector Guide is arranged into five main product categories with a graphical interface to speed navigation. Engineers can quickly narrow in on a set of products based on defined parameters/engineering standards geared to their specific design needs.
The Applications Guide assists design engineers in finding products tailored for a particular end equipment lighting application such as high bay lighting or MR16 replacement. This guide navigates by block diagram, which provides a higher system level view. In addition, the site features a Resource Guide – containing videos, selection guides, white papers, application notes, key industry trends, plus other helpful design sources to help fast track the overall design process.
Arranged into defined categories, information can be quickly referenced by supplier or topic. The site is constantly being updated and refined as lighting technology moves further and further away from the Edison bulb.
