For the first time at electronica, Avnet EMEA will present its European business units at one consolidated exhibition space. In addition to the expertise of its individual business units, Avnet will also demonstrate the capabilities of its ecosystem. Avnet EMEA, its business units Avnet Silica, EBV Elektronik and Avnet Abacus; and Farnell element14, the European business of Premier Farnell, are located in Hall C5, Stand 101.
“We can design, make, supply and deliver for customers of every size in every corner of the world – whether your product is still a notion on a napkin, in mass production, or at any point in between,” says Georg Steinberger, vice president of communications, Avnet EMEA. “At this year’s electronica we want to demonstrate to attendees – regardless if they are a start-up, already our customer, or a visitor new to us -- Avnet’s extensive ecosystem.”
The four major Avnet business units will each host a dedicated area of the booth, enabling visitors to gain a wider and deeper insight into Avnet’s ecosystem and broad range of capabilities. Avnet’s electronica presence in Hall C5 will be accompanied by participation in the show’s start-up initiative electronica Fast Forward, the young professionals’ area called electronica Experience and by hosting a Community Developers Lounge.
Highlights of the dedicated areas for each of the four business units include:
Avnet Abacus, an interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical and power distributor, will showcase six demo stations highlighting its broad mix of technology and expertise to provide design solutions for a range of customer applications. One example will be Hanhaa’s parcel-tracking system, which perfectly demonstrates the close engagement between Avnet Abacus and its strategic franchise partners to offer engineering solutions to support customers in turning an idea into a commercial success and reducing time to market.
To ‘experience smart future’ Avnet Silica will focus on showing technology that they have developed in action. A variety of solutions, applications and systems will visualise how current and future technologies will influence our work and life in areas like smart cities, smart industry, artificial intelligence, vision, automotive, lighting and communication. From choosing the right hardware and software through to finalised projects the Avnet Silica corner will provide a complete overview of its capabilities at electronica.
EBV Elektronik, a specialist in EMEA semiconductor distribution, will have its main focus on IoT, artificial intelligence, its vertical segments and the latest EBV chips. With its technical experts on the booth, customers will have the possibility to talk about the latest technology and the constantly changing market conditions.
Farnell element14 will be presenting its range of intelligent technology for intelligent solutions. Visitors to the stand will follow the journey from research and design through to production and maintenance, supported by demonstrations of the latest technologies available for embedded applications, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, machine learning and 3D printing. Technical experts will be on stand to talk about new ways that customers can accelerate their time to market by deploying intelligent technology at every stage of design.
