Arrow Electronics has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Infineon Technologies, to provide start-up businesses in South East Asia, India, Australia, and New Zealand with innovative products and engineering support to help them accelerate the idea-to-impact innovation journey.
The MoU was signed at Infineon Technologies‘ OktoberTech Asia event where industry players showcased solutions around the future of mobility, robotics, smart living, and smart cities.
Dr. Koh Poh Koon, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade & Industry and National Development and H.E. Dr. Ulrich A. Sante, German Ambassador to Singapore were among the officiating guests at the event held recently. The event featured keynote speeches, concurrent technical tracks and an innovation showcase of nearly 40 mobility, smart living, and robotic applications.
“Infineon offers a wide range of microelectronics that connects the digital world of data with the real world of things, from sensors to security chips,” said Chua Chee Seong, president, and managing director, Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. “Infineon’s collaboration with Arrow will offer start-ups the capabilities and innovations to develop the next generation of intelligent and intuitive devices.”
“With technologies rapidly evolving in the last few years, startups constantly face challenges to stay ahead of the game. They are often in need of engineering expertise, especially in areas such as wireless connectivity, sensing and controlling and system integration.
