August 04, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Mouser Electronics has added a Communications Application Site on Mouser.com, that includes Optical Line Card, Optical Module and IP Phone subsets, each with detailed block diagrams and easily accessible product links ranging from Amplifiers and AC Adaptors to Voltage Translators and Wireless LANs.

A Featured Products section allows designers to select from a broad portfolio of components and development tools. Each component provides a brief explanation of the device and its importance in an application. Links to additional components are provided where developers can view datasheets and product availability. Products include the Altera Arria V Family of Midrange FPGAs, Finisar QSFP+ Gen2 Transceiver Modules, the new Molex zQSFP+ High Speed I/O Connectors and many others, all with easily accessible specifications and features.

The Articles section includes papers written by experts in their fields on relevant topics, including Advances in Data Centre Network Technology, End-to-End Fibre Optic Communications, and New Fibre Optic Communications Applications. Each article is complete with diagrams, graphics and charts to further aid design engineers, and includes an area to post comments and questions.

The Resources Section is accessed by manufacturer or topic and includes articles on Circuit Protection, Connectors, High Speed Design Passives and Telecommunications. This allows engineers to easily find application notes useful for their projects. Links provide detailed explanations and specifications about products, including videos, educational diagrams, selection guides and system photographs useful to the design engineer.
