A globally preferred, leading supplier of frequency control and magnetic components, Abracon Corporation has expanded its online technical support content for the engineering community with the addition of a Component Reference Design Tool on its website.
"Engineers searching for supporting components within reference designs for semiconductors will find this tool of great value," explains Syed Raza, Director of Engineering at Abracon. "This comprehensive and growing tool provides the user with the ability to search for semiconductor reference designs by part number or manufacturer. It identifies the associated Abracon part number and links to the corresponding page for this component, providing the engineer with a host of supporting data, including specifications, environmental compliance documents, 3D models, step files and inventory within Abracon and its distribution partners," continues Raza.
Users will also gain quick access from the component’s landing page to the semiconductor reference documents, including application notes, BOMS, schematics, data sheets and evaluation boards. This gives the user a point of reference for the Abracon part, as well as other needed components in their design.
For enhanced value, Abracon has identified additional and fully compatible crosses to reference design components, identifying these clearly should engineers choose to use the Abracon alternatives.
“Sometimes semiconductor manufacturers select an Abracon component, for example a 32.768 KHz crystal, as a reference design, but then opt for another supplier’s 8MHz crystal to use with the same semiconductor. In this instance, Abracon has made a 100% cross to the other supplier’s component and indicated it as an alternative cross to the reference design,” concludes Raza.
The Component Reference Design Tool is password protected, requiring first-time users to register online. For assistance with this tool, users may contact RefDesign@abracon.com.
