Mouser Brings the Future In Touch with Launch of
New Touch Technology PKC Training Site

April 23, 2012Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, has unveiled its new Touch Technology Product Knowledge Center (PKC) application training site on The new site is engineered to help design engineers find the latest advancements in touch technology, trends and supporting product information in as few clicks as possible. The new site complements Mouser’s broad line card, which includes 3M, Atmel, Cypress Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, Microchip Technology, Azoteq, Amulet Technologies and Newhaven Display, plus many other leading suppliers in touch technology.

       Kevin Hess, Mouser Vice President of Technical Marketing, touched on the goal of the overall site design. “In our rushed, touch-and-go world, we wanted to create a new PKC that places the latest innovations and advancements in touch technology at the design engineer’s fingertips… allowing them to quickly find the solutions they need with a single click. At Mouser, we understand the one component that engineers can’t get enough of is time. And that’s why our Touch Technology PKC is as quick and intuitive as the latest touch screen.”

       Organized into four sectors: Technology, Featured Products, Articles, and Design Resources, Mouser’s Touch Technology PKC application training site is a comprehensive resource, covering all areas of touch, including touch buttons, sliders, and wheels that are beginning to replace traditional switches, as well as touch screen technology that is now common in portable consumer devices. Technology guides and product selection are grouped by touch displays, touch overlays, touch controllers ICs, and development kits, with the newest products available for design easily found under the featured products section. Therefore, engineers can quickly narrow in on a set universe of products based on defined parameters/engineering standards for their specific design needs.

       To view information by application or end equipment rather than product, the design engineer can quickly reference the Resource Guide. It contains applications information, tutorials and white papers, videos, plus other helpful design sources to help fast track the overall design process. Arranged neatly into defined categories, the information can be quickly referenced by supplier or topic. More importantly, the site is constantly being updated and refined as touch technology continues to evolve.
