Farnell launches online Industrial Embedded Computers hub

Farnell has announced the launch of a new Industrial Embedded Computers online hub.

The hub is intended to provide design engineers with the latest information on cutting-edge industrial single board computers (SBCs) used in many demanding industrial Internet of the Things (IoT) and edge computing environments.

The Industrial Embedded Computers online hub features a comprehensive range of technical resources, including articles, application notes, guides, projects and training modules, videos and eBooks. Visitors can also access Farnell’s range of online calculators, conversion charts and component selection tools available from the Technical Resource Centre.

The hub also includes pages to highlight market-leading products from featured suppliers including Raspberry Pi, Intel, Xilinx, NXP, Ardunio, Beagleboard, Industrial Shields, KUNBUS and Wittra. Complementary application pages enable design engineers to drill deeper into specific areas covering industrial automation and control, and the IoT through to agriculture, automotive, maintenance, and edge computing.

A recent global survey from Farnell illustrates the widespread adoption of low-cost SBCs by engineers working in IoT and industrial environments, with about 50 per cent of respondents using SBCs in these two categories. According to the survey, SBCs are now a valuable building block used in all stages of product development and production from proof of concept and prototyping to production and test rigs.

Commenting Romain Soreau, Head of Single Board Computing at Farnell said, “Today’s industrial embedded computers offer a powerful combination of high performance, versatility, features and accessories. Combined with their low cost, and large active user community, these development platforms are very attractive to engineers looking to develop and deploy a broad range of industrial applications in the shortest possible time. Our new Industrial Embedded Computers online hub will help our customers keep pace with new technological advancements. It is a simple and easy to use platform which brings together all our best-selling products, technical resources and application examples in one place so engineers can focus on innovation and easily overcome design challenges.”
