"The new NXP Tech bench is a must have app for engineers. I'm into a number of projects myself and for me it's the perfect solution for the job. Compliments for giving me my favorite tech app"

What a great tool for the system designer. Now, we need one for the IC chip designer. Oh wait, there is one! Our friends over at ChipEstimate calls it InCyte Chip Estimator. On a PC now, how much would it take to make it an iPad app?

Sharp remark......by offering app notes, user manuals and other specs as well I would say it qualifies as more then just our catalog. And yes it's about NXP parts right now, but we'll also open it up for you to work with your own documents in our app for sure. Integrating design (simulation) tools is up next. Getting there.... Always interested in any suggestions to make life more easy for engineers working with us....

I understand the product catalog app, but this new one just seems like an extension of that -- allowing you to put together a bill of materials for a complete system...as long as the system only requires parts from NXP. I think it's cool what NXP is doing with iOS and Android apps that make it easy for engineers to select NXP parts, but really these are just product catalogs. It's a bit of marketing stretch to call this an "engineering workbench."

This company lives in another world. I am jealous of Apple

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for todays commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
