Thanks to Sylvie for bringing attention to the continuing mission of Speed2Design. As the world's leader in circuit protection, Littelfuse is committed to being the premier destination for solutions to even the most challenging CP applications.

I appreciate all the insightful and valuable comments. As we strive to provide meaningful value to our customers and design engineer stakeholders, feedback is critical in helping us understand how to structure Speed2Design.com to deliver the greatest benefit to those it was created for. I am encouraged that the interest shown in this concept is proof, as Chuck said, that the idea is a good one. The new LED Lighting Design Guide e-book is a shining example of the type of new content we'll be providing through Speed2Design.

Over the next several weeks, we will continue to add more content and interactive components, while evolving the site to make it easy-to-use and more focused on providing design solutions and support. Also, I'd like encourage the design engineering community to share feedback and ideas as we look to exceed your expectations. Feel free to email us at Speed2Design@littelfuse.com.

I can't speak for the execution of the website, TJ, but the idea's a good one. Today, design engineers typically leave circuit protection considerations to the last instant, and then they want to get it done fast.

Where's the Site?

I agree, Speed2Design is the wrong place to look.  littlefuse.com is a better choice, but the blogs and live chat seem to be missing.  It's one thing to say that you have changed your web site, but quite another thing to actually do it, apparently.

Sylvie, looking at the web site, the front page does not easily welcome someone looking for a fast answer as Littelfuse states.

Most of what can be seen on the front page ties into racing.  If one is looking for an industrial protection solution, it's going to take less than 10 seconds to bail out from the site.

Littelfuse needs to improve the interface, or the people looking for fast solutions will look elsewhere.  Links to the selection guide are on one of the five pages in the scrolling banner at the top.  You stand an 80% chance of not seeing the selection guide when looking at the page.

I use littelfuse products in my designs but I've not found speed2design to be helpful at this point.

If we are going to be creating a network that serves us, one of its most critical nodes will need to be ourselves. This is where wearable technology comes into play.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
