NXP’s mobile app, ‘Tech Bench’, will help engineers more easily browse, store and link products to projects. Tech bench is an intuitive, feature-rich iPad app allowing engineers to access NXP’s full product portfolio; to collect datasheets, application notes and quality information; and to ‘drag and drop’ product or application data in self-defined project sections. The app allows users to create a personalised workbench to cluster their engineering projects which can then be shared via email or social media channels. iPhone, Android and Windows apps are also available. 
“NXP’s mobile apps are an outstanding example of a highly creative use of new technologies to enable open innovation. In our industry it’s critical to stay ahead of the curve, not only with the products we create but in the way we create them,” said Richard Dasher, director of the US-Asia Technology Management Center at Stanford University.
