TechCast® from Farnell provides online training modules on the latest technologies
Farnell has launched an innovative new online technical training service. Known as TechCast®, the service has been launched in recognition of the increasing complexity of electronic solutions. It provides assistance and answers to customers seeking to understand the latest technology and obtain guidance in the selection of the most appropriate components for their designs.
Techcast® modules provide detailed information about a wide and diverse range of electronics technologies in a single, easy-to-use location. Accessed by a single click from the Farnell website homepage, TechCast® online training modules are adopted from suppliers and placed in standard format to ease familiarity. Constantly added to, the library currently contains over 100 modules from 31 suppliers. Leading companies such as Altera, Cree, Freescale, Molex and Murata Power Solutions are all featured providing information on devices and products ranging from FPGAs and Microprocessors, to LEDs, connectors and front-end power supplies.
An alphabetical search feature helps to speed up locating the required training module and users can select either narrated or silent formats. Adjacent to each training module indexed in the library is a ’Parts List’ button; this provides direct access to full technical and purchasing details for products referred to, or relevant to, that specific TechCast® module. With a single click customers can then purchase products with the next day delivery for just 5 Euros across Europe with no minimum order value. TechCast® compliments other innovative service initiatives recently introduced by Farnell aimed at providing industry-leading support to design engineers across the globe. These include the i-Buy free eprocurement management system and Live Technical Chat.
