Streamlining product development
Our versatile approach to product development can start with a blank sheet of paper or at any stage that you need design and development assistance. We follow through to the product’s end of life, as needed, helping with support, updates, certifications, patches, or whatever is required to boost profitability and extend your market reach. We specialize in:
- Embedded solutions: Design and integration for embedded solutions includes full embedded systems, embedded circuit boards, and display units, individual, or as part of a larger solution.
- Data center solutions: For software companies, we provide hardware and service expertise to bring appliances to market globally.
Avnet Integrated Solutions offers complete hardware and software integration to build the optimal solution that fulfills your all of your requirements. Depending on your needs, our solutions can be:
- Off-the-shelf: We’ll help you select the right technologies to build your solution quickly and effectively. Components are shipped to the destination of your choice and arrive right when you need them.
- Modified off-the-shelf: To provide maximum operational efficiencies for your organization, we can design and build the solution on your behalf. This includes assembly, configuration, testing and support until the solution is ready for market.
- Custom: When no existing technology components or systems meet your requirements, we’ll collaborate with you to build a custom solution that maps to your market goals. We specialize in designing and building custom solutions that meet rigorous design specifications, including ruggedized equipment with long lifecycles.
When the development stage is complete and your solution is ready for release, we work with you on production and manufacturing. We’ve structured our capabilities so that our flexibility is your business advantage. We provide the necessary engineering labs, tools, and processes so that you can focus on building market-ready products.
