Development kits: identifying and supporting market needs

Development kits: identifying and supporting market needs
The age of the development kit is very much upon us. According to Farnell element14 research conducted with more than 1,500 designers of electronic prototypes, on average development kits were used in 45% of all designs in the 12 months up to March 2014. By utilising readymade, low cost boards engineers can test their design ideas with a variety of components. By Richard Curtin, Global Director of Strategic Alliance, element14.
