3 reasons to visit Avnet Abacus at electronica 2018

Tomorrow electronica will open its doors once more as 2,725 exhibitors from across the electronics industry get ready to show over 75,000 visitors how they are enabling the latest technology. This year, Avnet Abacus will join Avnet Silica, Premier Farnell and EBV Elektronik on one stand to present the tools, support and solutions available to engineers to help them take their designs from idea all the way to market. Electronica 2018 will be an exciting event for Avnet Abacus, and here are three reasons you should stop by stand C5 101 this week:

Technology demos

The Avnet Abacus stand will play host to demos of six new and highly innovative products that have been developed with the advice and support of our technical experts. From Hanhaa’s live parcel-tracking device, to the HYPERVSN 3D holographic projection system, to Smart City System’s Parking Pilot smart-sensor-based parking system, these are some of the most exciting new technologies that Avnet has helped guide to market. Our team will be on hand to show you them in action and demonstrate how we helped them overcome their engineering and logistics challenges.

Tech talks

Technology demos aren’t the only new thing happening on our stand this year. We’ve got an exciting schedule of tech talks and Q&As with leading technical experts from Avnet Abacus and our suppliers. Catch up on the latest trends in power supply design with Artesyn Embedded Technologies, hear from Panasonic on why polymer capacitors are a viable replacement for MLCCs in your designs, or get advice from our resident battery expert, Tim Parker, on selecting lithium batteries. Whatever your area of interest, our talks are not to be missed!

The Avnet Plaza

This year all of Avnet’s European business units are under one roof. Drop into the central Avnet Plaza to experience daily talks and presentations. They’ll cover the many stages of the product development cycle and the tools and services that Avnet can provide to help engineers navigate the tricky road from idea to production. What’s more, the Plaza will play host to a party on Wednesday night, so bring your dancing shoes.

And if you’re not going to be at the fair, keep an eye on Engineers’ Insight as we’ll be posting daily blogs, or follow us on social media for live updates, videos and more:


See you in hall C5 on stand 101.
