Farnell Adds 1300 New Products
Farnell, the leading multi-channel distributor, is placing additional focus on multimedia technology with addition of over 1300 new products specifically for use in this pervasive, exciting and rapidly developing area of technology.
Mobile multimedia devices have become affordable mainstream products for the mass market as have technologies such as LCD and plasma television and video servers. Recognising the need to give designers easy access to the very latest technology in this fast moving sector, Farnell now offers a total of 3200 products from over 112 suppliers including industry leading names such as Freescale, Maxim, Texas Instruments and Atmel.
Multimedia also provides the focus for the latest issue of Farnell’s Technology First journal which contains a range of informative articles that aim to help demystify some of the aspects of designing for multimedia applications. Popular regular features such as RoadTest and MarketWatch can also be found in the publication. Downloadable PDF and interactive online versions of the journal are available and can be accessed via the homepage of the Farnell website.
Commenting on the company’s focus on multimedia, Jamie Furness, Technology Development Manager, Farnell said: “Multimedia is perhaps the most rapidly evolving sector of the electronics industry. Consumer driven demand is leading designers to face tough challenges to integrate previously separate functionality into what are often small and portable form factors. Our focus on multimedia is timely and underlines our dedication to giving designers fast access to the very latest multimedia technologies from the most innovative suppliers.”
