Farnell element14 presents a ‘World of Electronics’ at RTS Embedded 2017

Farnell element14 will be reinforcing its credentials as The Development Distributor at RTS Embedded 2017 in Paris later this month. On stand F13 it will showcase the products, tools and solutions that empower people and businesses to shape the future of electronics.

Visitors will be taken on a journey through the ‘World of Electronics’ where they will experience why Farnell element14 is the go-to partner for engineering customers in France.

Farnell element14 will display the latest single board computers and products for education and makers, recognising the importance of training and nurturing an interest in coding and engineering to support the engineers of the future. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, which features a new, faster processor to increase its speed, will be demonstrated for visitors.

Within the ‘World of Electronics’ Farnell element14 will also feature products from its market leading development kit range demonstrating its strength in the research and design phase. Visitors will be able to view a demonstration of the RIoTboard MCIMX6 SOLO development platform, an open source platform based on an ARM Cortex-A9 processor.

Highlighting its strength right through the design cycle, Farnell element14 will feature the Keysight Oscilloscope MDO4024C on the stand. The 6-in-1 integrated oscilloscope is one of the products making up the industry’s broadest range of test and measurement equipment, available from Farnell element14 as it supplies customers from bench to board.

As the Development Distributor, Farnell element14 is more than a traditional distributor. Working with the largest semi-conductor manufacturers to the newest start-ups, Farnell element14 provides a range of technical expertise and solutions to bring new products to market. Crucially, by working with Farnell element14 and therefore reducing the number of vendors they work with, customers can reduce their time to market significantly.
