Avnet Launches Self-Service Design Hub for Engineers

The tool aims to help engineers create designs faster by giving them visibility into available products and the knowledge to put them to use.

Electronic components distributor Avnet announced Nov. 13 that it has launched a new self-service online tool that makes reference designs more approachable for engineers.

The tool, called Design Hub, includes a vast reference design library that helps designers quickly develop system-level solutions 24/7. Powered by AVAIL, Design Hub leverages more than 70,000 solutions to common design problems, which are automatically loaded into the engineer’s design based on their specific requirements.

“Research shows that 80% of engineers use datasheets, application notes, reference designs and block diagrams to begin their new designs,” said Art Leitherer, Avnet Vice President of Global Technology and Solutions in a news release. “All of that research takes time, and if what they are looking for is new to them, asking the right questions to find the data can be challenging as well. Now they can leverage the Design Hub to take advantage of the community of designers that have assembled current and available content that is applicable to the need.”

Ultimately, Avnet said, Design Hub helps engineers create their designs faster by giving them visibility to products that are actually available and the knowledge to put them to use.

The Design Hub news came less than a week after Avnet announced the opening of a new technology campus in southern Germany.

Avnet was No. 2 on MDM’s 2023 Top Electronic Components Distributors List.
