Digi-Key has strengthened its Design & Integration Service Program by signing up Dresden, Germany-based A.N. Solutions, a leading Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) design house.
The design company will offer its professional engineering services to Digi-Key’s developer community, focusing on complex industrial IoT product development, challenging RF antenna design, monitoring and control wireless networking, sensor data integration, and more.
A.N. Solutions experts can guide designers and engineers through every stage of a wireless product development – from a thorough review of the current architecture and the need assessment to mapping out of a migration plan and creating a proof of concept.
Applications areas cover industrial monitoring and control systems, smart buildings, smart energy systems and automated metering, transportation, smart cities, and more.
Designers and engineers will receive step-by-step guidance accessing in-depth knowledge of wireless protocols, such as IEEE 802.15.4/Zigbee,6LowPAN, and LoRa, and their compatibility, with all aspects of connectivity and device management, network security, and sensor data acquisition,
“Recent proliferation of wireless standards created new challenges for developers trying to build robust yet adaptable products and solutions,” said Thomas Lerm, CEO of A.N. Solutions. “How to choose from the maze of technologies? We can help select the wireless protocols and components that are just right, and future-proof the system. By finding the right balance between edge-computing and the cloud, we will ensure a secure and reliable sensor data acquisition and storage process. We are very excited to join Digi-Key’s Design & Integration Services Program and be able to share our expertise with one of the leading developer communities in the world.”
”People are identifying more problems to solve than there are people to solve them. We are delighted that A.N. Solutions has joined us to help those people with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) challenges ranging from device selection to engineering assistance,” said Randall Restle, vice president of applications engineering at Digi-Key Electronics.
A.N. Solutions offers a wide range of hardware design, software and application development, and support services for the developers building innovative IoT products and systems using cutting edge A.N. Solutions’ @ANY components, as well as Microchip and other platforms.
Drawing on its in-house expertise and leveraging its ecosystem partners’ capabilities, A.N. Solutions’ dedicated team of engineers will answer any questions, troubleshoot the issues, and offer professional consulting, freeing up the customer’s resources and accelerating time-to-market of their products.
