Mouser Electronics has kicked off its latest Engineering Big Ideas series of eBooks with a free volume in which electronics industry experts look at how innovators move from the first spark of inspiration to product design to the first steps of production.
Designing an Idea begins with a foreword by Skullcandy Chief Product Officer Jeffrey L Hutchings, who examines how the path from idea to product is changing, with expanded access to tools and resources presenting organisations and individuals with new, more affordable routes to production.
Special contributors to the new eBook include Bob Martin, “Wizard of Make” and Senior Staff Engineer at Microchip Technology; Josh Lifton, PhD graduate of the MIT Media Lab and cofounder and president of Crowd Supply; and Dr Andy Stanford-Clark, CTO of IBM in UK and Ireland.
The book also includes an innovation-to-productisation model that can help technology creators improve their chances of success. The Engineering Big Ideas series is supported by Mouser suppliers Analog Devices, Intel, Microchip Technology and Molex.
“The road from idea to product can be arduous and filled with obstacles, but new technologies are opening up new and quicker paths,” said Kevin Hess, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Mouser Electronics. “The Engineering Big Ideas series begins with a look at how innovators develop their concepts and where they go from there.”
The Designing an Idea eBook is available now from Mouser.
