Premier Farnell stocking over 2,500 Embedded Development Kits and Accessories for same day dispatch

Premier Farnell highlights the latest embedded devices to learn, innovate and bring products to market


Premier Farnell, the Development Distributor, is committed to providing the latest in embedded solutions; stocking an extensive range of products from leading suppliers such as Cypress, Xilinx and NXP as well as an exclusive range of development kits created by its technology brand, element14.

With over 2,500 development kits and accessories in stock, customers can access daughter boards and modules, primary platform development kits, single board computers and development kit accessories such as adaptors, circuit racks, enclosures and sensor kits, all with same day dispatch.

Premier Farnell also works with partners to bring exclusive development kits to customers, helping them get started with new technologies, reduce design time and accelerate time to market.

Premier Farnell's top picks for embedded solutions include:

  • Cypress PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit: The perfect way for engineers to get started with next-generation IoT Designs using the new PSoC 6 MCU, which is purpose-built for the IoT. The PSoC 6 MCU is an IoT game changer which eliminates the need for designers to choose between high performance and low power in their IoT project development. The PSoC 6 delivers both, plus the security that next-generation IoT devices demand - all on the famous PSoC programmable fabric.

  • Xilinx® All Programmable Devices: Xilinx All Programmable devices provide the designer with a flexible route to system implementation. The blank canvas of the device can quickly be configured by using advanced development tools and libraries to produce a product that does exactly what is needed, providing a faster time to market. By integrating multiple functions in a single device there is a reduced Bill of Materials, making savings in both purchasing and manufacturing.

  • Raspberry Pi IoT Learner Kit:  Developed in collaboration with IBM, the kit provides an end-to-end learning solution for makers, hardware and software developers and students looking to get started with IoT development. Built around the Raspberry Pi3 and Raspberry Pi sense hat, the kit can be used in conjunction with IBM’s Coursera course: “A Developer`s Guide to Internet of Things (IoT)” to learn the skills required for IoT development, create projects and bring innovative projects into commercial application.

Premier Farnell is joining Avnet Silica on stand at Embedded World 2018, 27th February to 1st March. Visitors to the Premier Farnell booth at the Avnet Silica stand will be able to demo the Raspberry Pi IoT Learner Kit and preview the element14 Development Kit for the Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ Sub-1 GHz Sensor to Cloud Linux® Gateway.

  • Development Kit for TI SimpleLink Sub- GHz sensor to Cloud Linux® Gateway: Exclusive to Premier Farnell, the kit provides an end-to-end tool to enable a Sub-1 GHz sensor network with an Internet of Things (IoT) gateway and cloud connectivity. The element14 SimpleLink™ Sub-1GHz Sensor to Cloud Linux Industrial Gateway development kit allows developers to get to market faster with an out-of-the-box, end-to-end solution enabling an easy cloud connection for sending and receiving long-range sensor data while maintaining a robust link. The kit contains all the components needed to create a full sensor network, including a gateway design based on the BeagleBone® Black, the BeagleBone Wireless Connectivity Cape, and the TI SimpleLink™ dual-band CC1350 wireless MCU LaunchPad™ development kit acting as the MAC co-processor.

Simon Meadmore, Global Head of Semiconductors and SBC at Premier Farnell said: “As the Development Distributor, we are focussed on providing our customers with the support they need to get their products to market quickly. One way in which we do this is by providing access to the latest embedded devices, all in stock and all available for same day dispatch, supporting design engineers wherever they are on their journey, as they learn, innovate, optimise and bring their products to market.”
