Hardware Integration & Software Configuration

You envision it and we’ll build it

We’ve shown you how to make your vision into a product the market will demand, now we’ll build it so you won’t keep your customers waiting. Avnet will take the work you’ve done with our system engineers (SE) and engage our integration engineering team to create and execute a build plan to your specifications. We’ll integrate the hardware, configure the software, put it together and package it up for delivery to your customers or channel.

Avnet owns and operates ISO 9001 and 13485 (medical device) certified integration centers in every global region. You’ll never have to worry about inconsistent quality or build instructions with Avnet. All of our centers operate on the same manufacturing control system and bill of materials (BOM) management system. Instructions created in one region are instantly accessible in all of the others. BOM changes or order specific instructions are consistent everywhere. You’ll also appreciate being in control, no changes to revision, BOM or build instructions go into the system without your review and approval.  You’ll also appreciate our first article process, showing you we can create exactly what you want the first time and every time after.

We’re also fanatical about keeping your system secure through every step of the integration process. Our access control system ensures no unauthorized individual ever gets near your equipment, our technicians are all A Plus certified and go through extensive background checks and we provide you with VPN access to your products on the line so you can remotely test or install proprietary Intellectual Property (IP).

We’ve worked with every type of embedded system and integrated solution on the market today. From customized nursing carts, to handheld scanners to fully converged servers, we’ve built them all. We couple our integration capabilities with world class supply-chain services to make sure everything is in place in time, so your deliveries are on time. 

We specialize in both giving you scale and flexibility through the mix of products we support. We ship nearly half a million integrated systems each year which represents more than half of our entire Avnet Embedded business. We serve over 2,500 customers through our integration centers including the most recognized brands in healthcare, communications, data center, industrial and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Our ability to support both established OEMS looking to create custom embedded appliances and innovative startups who need servers to run their software IP sets us apart as the partner of choice. The greatest testimony to our ability are the awards we’ve been presented for quality and partner of the year by our customers. We’re grateful for the recognition and humbled by the fact some of the largest companies in the world have presented these awards to us multiple years in a row. We’re not living on yesterday’s success, we excited to engage with you and build the concept you’ve created into a successful application.
