"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."
