Security and identification comes under the spotlight as Farnell adds new technologies and supports new designs via element14
Security and identification has become the latest market focus area for Farnell. The leading multi-channel, high service distributor has added over 1,900 new devices from industry-leading suppliers to its portfolio to give designers unrivalled choice in this rapid growth sector. Farnell has also made security and identification the focus for the latest issue of its Technology First magazine which includes a range of topical articles to keep the design engineering community up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies.
Farnell now offers a total of over 6,000 security and identification related products for applications such as CCTV and surveillance, identity and access control, network and data information security and RFID. Key suppliers in this sector include Analog Devices, Freescale, Microchip, Tyco and Molex.
As part of Farnell’s increased focus on security and identification, the element14 technology portal and e-community will feature a dedicated discussion group covering the topic at http://www.element-14.com/community/community/industries/security/ that will provide support and information for design engineers working on new projects.
PDFs and interactive online versions of the Technology First magazine can be accessed via the security link on the Technology First area of the Farnell website. This link also provides access to information on new product introductions, allows visitors to search products by category, and highlights the relevant ‘hotlinks’ to the technical collateral on element14.
“Security and more recently identification have become important sectors for the electronics industry,” said Jamie Furness, Global Head of eCommunity, Farnell. “Through our enhanced range of products from the leading industry names, the element14 technology portal, and our Technology First journal, we can provide the design engineer with the tools and products needed to help them successfully develop and implement their new designs.”
