SAN JOSE, Calif.--Semiconductor company NXP has had its engineering workbench iPad app approved by Apple and launched in the App store.
The app, in beta since early February of this year, follows hot on the heels of NXP’s smartphone product inventory app, which was designed to help engineers find relevant parts for their projects, including product specs, datasheets and application diagrams.
The latest iteration iPad app, however, goes a step further, allowing engineers to put together full projects using available components, store and easily share them via social networking sites.
Other features of the app include being able to buy products via distributors, drag and drop favorite documents and pages into projects, share entire projects and details via email and social media, find sales offices and lists of distributors and read product news, press releases and see videos.
“Our new NXP Tech bench allows engineers to create a personalized workbench to search, cluster and store NXP design information in self defined project sections,” said NXP’s VP of marketing and communications, Sander Arts, noting that over 10.000 products, applications and documents were available.
The NXP Tech Bench was developed by NXP’s mobile marketing and web solutions team and BETA tested with more than 35 engineers.
