At embedded world 2023, Barrie Mullins, Vice President of Solutions, einfochips, an Arrow Electronics company and Dev Singh, Vice President, Business Development, Qualcomm Technologies to Electronic Specifier's Editor, Mick Elliott, about an extension of the agreement between Arrow, eInfochips and Qualcomm.
Arrow Electronics guides innovation forward for over 210,000 leading technology manufacturers and service providers.
eInfochips, an Arrow Electronics company, is a provider of digital transformation and product engineering services. With 500-plus products developed and 40 million deployments in 140 countries, eInfochips continues to fuel technological innovations in multiple verticals.
Qualcomm is enabling a world where everyone and everything can be intelligently connected.
Arrow Electronics and Qualcomm Technologies have expanded their strategic collaboration. The establishment of Edge Labs – an Arrow Centre of Excellence (CoE) - will help customers accelerate the development of connected intelligent edge devices based on solutions from Qualcomm Technologies.
Edge and AI solution development is becoming increasingly challenging to customers due to several factors such as lack of prior experience, limited access to high-performance edge and AI chipsets, supply chain complexity and fledgling ecosystem.
Edge Labs aims to help innovators navigate these challenges while increasing the adoption of Edge AI using solutions from Qualcomm Technologies across security, safety, healthcare, robotics, cameras, displays, optical inspection and other IoT applications.
Edge Labs will have a dedicated solution architect and engineering team to develop application-specific solutions, including training sales and field application engineers specifically on Qualcomm Technologies’ products. It will also offer design services to enable lower risk and faster time to market for customers through eInfochips, an Arrow company.
Customers can rely on Edge Labs to deliver innovative and leading-edge products, accelerate and de-risk design cycles, leverage the Aikri portfolio of SOMs and development kits, and get access to a world-class support team enabling them to plan and manage their product roadmap and lifecycles.
