Avnet Abacus, one of Europe’s leading interconnect, passive, electromechanical and power distributors, has announced that it will make its debut at Embedded World in 2012, demonstrating embedded power solutions for diverse applications as Smart metering, LED lighting, energy harvesting, Information systems, digital imaging and wireless LAN systems. The company will also have CAN-bus interface and sensor products on display for the first time.
The emerging markets mentioned above require much more than single component approach. In solid state lighting, for example, it is important to support the LEDs with the latest, high reliability driver IC circuitry, passives and connectors in order to maximize the benefits of moving away from older, inefficient filament & fluorescent technology. Applications for energy harvesting, are so new that many approaches are currently under evaluation and designers need to see a complete systems picture before deciding on which technology is most appropriate.
Comments Alan Jermyn, VP European Marketing at Avnet Abacus: “We have paired exciting new, enabling technology from companies such as Cymbet and Enpirion with passive and electromechanical products from the industry’s leading names to ensure that designers looking to develop energy- and cost-efficient embedded systems can access a full package of parts designed to work perfectly together. Embedded World 2012 is the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our technical and applications capabilities, and we will also take the opportunity to feature products only recently launched.”
