@Cabe: Well a picture explains a lot more than anything else. Graphical description explains or gets through towards the human brain far more easier than anything else.

Some pictures or examples would be cool to see.

There are so many circuit design programs out there.

That is a great idea - simplifies the design process which is always a good thing. Hopefully some of the circuit design software folks will see the value and start incorporating it into their packages.

It would be great if iDesign or an equivalent could be incorporated into the boatloads of free circuit design and simulation platforms overflowing on the net. It would surely cut down on the amount of add-ons needed just for testing.

@Charles - it is amazing the amount of damage ESD can do. When doing failure analysis at the microscopic level - it leaves a definite explosive looking hallmark that has been the downfall of many a chip. I was folding clothes earlier today and I could not believe the size of the spark I generated just by pulling some clothes out of the dryer. The wise engineer considers circuit protection upfront...

I like it! This frees my time up and gives me one less thing to worry about - Littlefuse has created a way to eliminate digging through data sheets and product catalogs for a critical yet often under-utilized part of good circuit design - making it much easier to implement.

This is a great example of cloud design.

I agree. It's cool, Daniyal_Ali. In my past dealings with Littelfuse, I've been amazed at the stories they tell about over-voltages and over-currents caused by gym shoes, carpets, hosiery and distant lightning strikes. It's definitely a practical idea.

Wow. This is so cool. Being a design engineer, I know how important this software is for us. A lot of time is spent doing the calculations about fuses, and the iterations sometimes get quite annoying. This software does everything for you, and i loved the iteration part as that part is quite time consuming. I hope Littlefuse would come up with more software related to protection of electronics and help engineers in saving time as well as money.
