Arrow Electronics has announced it will offer development platforms for embedded computing based initially on Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processors.
Arrow will distribute a development platform and system-on-modules based on the Snapdragon 600 processor from Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm. This provides embedded and industrial customers with greater access to high-performing and low-power Snapdragon-based solutions and features to develop products and applications, including security systems, robotics, and motion control.
“Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are recognised as industry-leading products designed to provide high-performance features,” said David West, vice president for global marketing and engineering for Arrow’s global components business. “We are excited by the opportunity to distribute development platforms based on Qualcomm Snapdragon processors globally, and provide design services to customers to accelerate commercial deployment time.”
“Snapdragon-based development platforms and system-on-modules provide developers and commercial connected device makers a platform to create a wide range of embedded products,” said Tia Cassett, senior director of product management of Qualcomm Technologies. “We congratulate Arrow on bringing these platforms to global distribution.”
In addition to providing Snapdragon-powered solutions, hardware and software, Arrow will provide technical support for developers, accelerating deployment time for products.
