Arrow Electronics has launched software support services to help customers accelerate their journey to production.
Areas covered include artificial intelligence, application software, security software, operating system integration and cloud software.
Margit Tischler, Vice President of Engineering in Arrow’s EMEA components business, said, “With the ever-increasing complexity of system design, Arrow recognizes the growing importance of software development, integration and validation as a critical path to successful product launches. Our software competence center in Gdansk, Poland, where we continue to invest, will help customers de-risk project schedules and accelerate design cycles, to gain faster time to revenue. With the launch of Arrow software support services, we help with complex hardware technology selection and design but also stay engaged in the project through the vital software development stage.”
Leveraging Arrow’s Software Competence Centre in Gdansk, the services will be accessible via all local Arrow branch offices in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
These new services complement the existing hardware and software design capabilities offered globally by eInfochips, Arrow’s professional engineering services arm.
Arrow has invested in its engineering teams, developing the expertise to support customers through the software development process.
Arrow’s professional software support services follow a structured menu for customers to select from. Some initial services, such as assistance getting development tools from the hardware supplier up and running with the standard supported software, are complimentary. Other, more involved tasks are fee-based, with Arrow’s key goal being to help the customer get their product to market as quickly as possible.
Arrow’s new software support services aim to bring complex projects to the pre-production level more rapidly. Following this stage, customers have the opportunity to industrialize their designs with Arrow’s professional engineering services arm, eInfochips, to assist in development, verification and test.
