Arrow signs global deal to carry Bosch MEMS sensors

Arrow Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement to supply Bosch Sensortec products. The two companies say they will pursue opportunities for inertial, environmental and smart sensors in applications including wearables, smart home, building automation, industry 4.0, domestic robots, toys, augmented and virtual reality and drones.

Stefan Finkbeiner, Bosch Sensortec’s CEO, said: “This agreement brings together two of the most dynamic companies addressing the IoT, whose combined offerings can help many companies accelerating their product development, deployment and long term management. We look forward to a successful relationship.”

Aiden Mitchell, global vice president of IoT sales at Arrow, added: “Bosch Sensortec has created an excellent portfolio that is well-positioned to address the proliferation of sensory edge intelligence within today’s and future IoT applications. Bosch’s highly integrated products and software solutions complement Arrow’s Sensor-to-Sunset strategy perfectly.”

Bosch is a leading supplier of MEMS sensors and has manufactured more than 8billion such devices since 1995.

The recently released BME680 environmental sensor is now available for order at Arrow. The device integrates temperature, humidity, pressure and indoor air quality measurement sensors and is said to be suited to IoT applications.
