Avnet demonstrating the power of four and the complete development ecosystem at embedded world 2020

Avnet has announced details of its presence at embedded world 2020, which is being held at the Messe Nuremberg, Germany between 25–27 February 2020.

All the business units within Avnet’s EMEA components organisation – Avnet Abacus, Avnet Silica, EBV Elektronik, plus Farnell – will be present on the same 689m² stand in Hall 3A, Stand 221.

Integrating and building upon the expertise of the individual business units, Avnet offers a comprehensive product life cycle ecosystem that can help embedded customers wherever they are in their product lifecycle – from concept to design, from prototyping to mass production, and right through to end-of-life management.

“Bringing the power of four major Avnet organisations together at one space at Embedded World 2020 not only allows engineers very short ways to find their solutions, it also demonstrates the wealth of opportunities the Avnet ecosystem provides to its customers in the technology space” said Georg Steinberger, vice president of communications, Avnet EMEA. “Whether you are developing lowest-power “things” for IoT, complete edge-to-cloud solutions with full connectivity or machine-learning concepts for complex industrial manufacturing environments, Avnet has the know-how and resources to help you turn an idea into a use-case and ultimately into real solutions.”

Engineers and technical specialists from all the business units in Avnet EMEA will be on hand to discuss the current and future projects of customers. Highlights of the dedicated areas for each of the four business units include:
