STMicroelectronics NV (ADR) (NYSE:STM), a world semiconductor leader in electronics applications is expanding its eDesignSuite Online Design Environment by incorporating Smart Transformer Selector features of Wurth Elektronik, a major transformer manufacturer.
This will supply consumers with new product designs with chips that make them complete their projects faster and cost-effectively. The move will help the company to solve its common problems by ordering custom parts, thereby saving material costs and turnaround time.
The newly linked eDesignSuite to web-based Smart Transformer of Wurth Elektronik will enable ST to power-supply designers that automatically select a suitable off-the-shelf transformer while still working in its eDesignSuite environment.
ST’s eDesignSuite can assist to hasten the design of many circuits and systems such as Switched-Mode Power Supplies (SMPS), LED lighting, filters, motor drives, among others. The company is committed to endlessly enhance the available tools and equipments to make their system designs easier and faster for their consumers.
Alessandro Cremonesi, Group Vice President, General Manager, Central Labs, STMicroelectronics comments that “Our initiative with Wurth Elektronik now solves the final part of the power-design process, enabling engineers to get a prototype up and running on the bench in a couple of days, instead of waiting several days or weeks to procure a custom transformer.” He said that the new feature will pace for online tools, allowing the users to co-design effectively and efficiently thus reducing the material costs of the final product.
Dean Huumala, Product Marketing & Development Manager for Wurth Elektronik added, “Smart Transformer Selector (STS) helps designers search our portfolio to find the right transformer quickly and efficiently. Bringing STS together with ST’s eDesignSuite now enables our mutual customers to complete their bill of materials with transformers that have already been designed, tested, released to production, and stocked both at us and our catalog distribution partners.”
