Complete cloud-based ecosystem removes development obstacles for IoT device OEMs through trusted partners and state-of-the-art building blocks
PHOENIX, US - MediaOutReach - 8 February 2020 - Leadingglobal technology solutions provider Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT) and ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, havejoined forces to create a framework that helps OEMs more rapidlydevelop end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The collaboration simplifiesthe process of building IoT-enabled devices through rapid prototyping system solutionsfrom ON Semiconductor that are preconfigured to connect to IoT applicationdevelopers and service providers through the cloud. Avnet's IoTConnect® Platform,powered by Microsoft® Azure and the associated Avnet IoT Partner Programfacilitate this connection. The first supported solution from ON Semiconductoris the RSL10 Sensor Development Kit, which features the industry's lowest powerFlash-based Bluetooth® Low Energy radio and an array of advanced environmentalsensors.
Through this collaboration, Avnet andON Semiconductor remove as much complexity from the IoT development process aspossible. This allows OEMs to easily build products and experiences aroundthose products and bring them to market faster, while at the same time loweringrisk. Avnet and ON Semiconductor offer a selection of pre-integrated hardwareand software solutions with a range of connectivity options. Guidance onbuilding the solution is also provided for the purposes of simplifying andspeeding development and allowing the OEM to focus on buildingmarket-differentiated solutions.
"With innovative, low-power system solutionsfrom ON Semiconductor alongside the robust IoTConnect platform, Avnet and ONSemiconductor provide a secure development environment for jumpstarting any IoTinitiative," said Wiren Perera, who heads IoT at ON Semiconductor. "IoTpresents a huge opportunity for OEMs to add autonomy to their products viasensing, connectivity and actuation, which can create new revenue streams andimprove efficiencies. ON Semiconductor and Avnet can help OEMs drive innovationforward by building smarter devices that address their customers' needs."
In addition, an OEM may need many newskillsets just to get an IoT project started, making it challenging for onecompany to get all the pieces to work together seamlessly. This includesdealing with the complexity of a diverse and global supply chain required tobuild then deliver IoT solutions.
"Avnet and ON Semiconductor are offeringsolutions to meet the changing needs of OEMs and their customers," said LouLutostanski, vice president of IoT, Avnet. "We're providing ways to help OEMsstay competitive, maximize revenue potential, and design with the righttechnologies to create secure IoT solutions."
