The distributor has created a list of hardware and software products which are highly relevant for teachers and educators.

Items on Farnell element14’s education list are:

•Keysight N6705C Power Analyser: This power analyser combines one to four DC power supplies, DMM, oscilloscope, arbitrary waveform generator, and data logger in one integrated instrument.

•Robox 3D Printer:  The Robox 3D printer uses a FFF dual nozzle head and suitable filament material feed to create 3D printer models of any #d model in .stl format turning the educator’s lab into a micro-manufacturing plant.

•Autodesk Eagle:  Autodesk Eagle PCB software  is free to students of qualifying educational institutions, giving them early access to professional tools that wild help them develop skills required in the workplace.

•Raspberry Pi 3 Model B:  Building upon the features of its predecessors with a faster processor,  Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities.

•Mathworks MATLAB and Student Suite: MATLAB Student and MATLAB and Simulink Student Suite provide the same tools that professional engineers and scientists use every day to model, simulate and analyse projects.

•LabVIEW Home: A graphical programming platform used by millions of engineers and scientists for problem solving, data acquisition and analysis, instrument control, automated testing& validation and prototyping.

The element14 online community also includes classroom-based design projects within the electronics and digital space and a range of calculators and tools are offered through its education portal.

Peter Birks, president for Farnell element14 writes:

 “Supporting the education of engineers is vital to ensure that the next generation has the talent to drive our industry forward and it is our mission to provide the learning tools, resources and opportunities to help them achieve these goals.”
