Animated scenarios of applications and maps to components

May 4, 2010-–Pulse Electronics, a worldwide leader in electronic component and subassembly design and manufacturing, announces a new feature on the Pulse website — interactive application support. Pulse’s Application Support subsite provides in-depth information about each application and a step-by-step process that enables the user to create a design and drill down to the specific parts to use for a particular application or requirement.

Applications represented include: Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Military/Aerospace, Switching Power Supply Devices, MoCA Network Interface Devices, Chip Inductors, Ethernet Switches, WiMax, Triple Play, NIC Servers, and Portable Navigation Devices. Each has a block diagram showing components needed to implement that application. By clicking on a highlighted block, a variety of part categories appear with photos and descriptions of products available, their functions, and the application to which they are best suited. When a particular part is identified, the user can access a datasheet of that part for viewing and download. Once a part is selected, users are just clicks away from obtaining price quotes or purchasing parts.

The application feature is prominently displayed on the Pulse home page, Basic information and definitions can be obtained by rolling the cursor over a category. Animated diagrams and photos make information easier to visualize and understand. Other features include:

  • animated and interactive presentations that shorten the learning curve
  • a look and feel similar to a presentation format
  • application pages that link to component maps
  • part descriptions, pictures, and summaries that are accessible and informative
  • direct part links to and from internal web pages which guide the user through a variety of applications

“Users can save time finding the best Pulse products for specific applications,” said Berta Creter, marketing/communications specialist at Pulse. “Scroll to the application that you want to investigate, click on a picture, and it will link to an application diagram. Then select the block in the diagram that links to the Pulse product you need. It’s very easy.”
