New franchise gives Premier Farnell's customers access to Adesto’s range


Adesto Technologies (NASDAQ: IOTS), a leading provider of innovative application-specific semiconductors for the IoT era, and Premier Farnell, the Development Distributor, have signed a new distribution agreement. The franchise provides OEM customers with access to Adesto’s complete portfolio of feature-rich, ultra-low power non-volatile memory (NVM) products, with support provided through Premier Farnell’s sales, technical and product management resources.

Adesto’s memories are optimized for IoT applications across industrial, consumer, medical and communications markets. The company’s portfolio of innovative memories includes DataFlash for data-logging applications, Fusion Flash for battery-operated devices, EcoXiP for enhanced system performance in execute-in-place applications, and the Moneta family for energy harvesting and extreme low-power systems. Collectively, Adesto’s portfolio of memory technologies offers designers a wide variety of solutions for low-energy storage.
