Balancing Processing and Power to Fit Your Vision

You start by considering the trade-offs between the speed and functionality needed from your processor and the power it’ll take to operate. If this is out of balance, your system either underperforms or takes more power than is acceptable.

We take the time to cover the benefits and options between the major processor architectures, ARM® and x86, and how they will perform with your code. Since we offer single board computers (SBC) in both flavors you’re never limited when you work with us.

You want a partner who understands the environment where your product will operate. Our experience across all market segments means we know what it takes to be successful. We’ve assisted designers in getting the most out of a battery powered appliance as well as engineers leveraging streaming video for a highly interactive experience for their customers.

Making all the Right Connections

You know the experience you want your customers to have, the one that keeps them loyal to your product. To your customer, what’s happening behind the scenes in your product is not important, its results that matter. You know that results depend on the overall flow of the system. We get it and provide different combinations of input/output (I/O) and connectivity modes so everything flows smoothly.

Take Bluetooth™ for example. There are a number of Bluetooth standards and picking the right one is important to ensure interoperability and the best experience. Working with Avnet means you know which standard to choose and why. This is the same approach we take across all of the available standards. We don’t limit you, we empower you.

You can choose from among different video connections, general purpose I/O, USB and other interfaces. This opens the door for you to extend your offering with accessories or to create an innovative product to add into an established system such as a mobile medical device that can connect to the hospital infrastructure via a wireless connection.
