Designed for the simulation, training and visualisation markets, the F35 features the Texas Instruments® WQXGA DLP® chip, has 78% more pixels than WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200) and offers more than five times the resolution of a standard XGA display. The result is incredibly high pixel-density displays that require fewer projectors to produce ultra-realistic images.
Among the many key technologies that Arrow supplies for the manufacture of the F35 at projectiondesign’s facility in Fredrikstad in South East Norway are FPGAs, microprocessors, memory, very high-speed connectors and a variety of discrete semiconductor and passive components. During the development of the new projector Arrow field application engineers (FAEs) worked extensively with the projectiondesign team providing design-in support, advice and guidance.
“Developing and manufacturing a projector such as the F35 requires high levels of electronic content, many high-performance components and optimal design and layout,” says company president Jørn Eriksen. “Arrow’s combination of broad product portfolio, engineering support capabilities and supply chain services all had a role to play in allowing us to bring this industry-leading product to market.”
Christian Brusdal, the Technical Sales Manager at Arrow Norway AS adds: “From helping with component identification and selection to intelligent management of the supply chain Arrow’s support for the F35 began at initial product concept and continues now with the management of inventory and logistics to support manufacture.”
