element14 signs to distribute ARM across Asia-Pacific region element14 claims it has become the largest global distributor of ARM development tools, software, evaluation boards and debug hardware thanks to a new franchise agreement with global semiconductor IP vendor ARM, to distribute its broad suite of development tool solutions for ARM processor-based system design in the Asia-Pacific region. The new agreement extends an existing Americas and EMEA franchise agreement between the two companies. In addition to hardware, element14 provides ARM-certified technical support and is the only global distributor offering the industry’s first electronic delivery of software, which can be downloaded and used immediately. This includes, the industry-leading ARM IDE/Compiler software, used globally by programmers. This agreement marks the next phase of element14’s successful relationship with ARM. Farnell element14 http://uk.farnell.com/ Arrow’s SmartEverything IoT board now at RS Components RS Components is now stocking the SmartEverything IoT development kit from Arrow Electronics. Measuring only 68.8x53.3mm, the SmartEverything ‘Fox’ board is an Arduinoform factor IoT system-on-module that comes with a multitude of factory bundled I/O ports and sensors and with a highly energy-efficient wireless connectivity technology. Key elements of the SmartEverything system board are the Atmel D21 ultra-low-power MCU, based on the 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ processor, and a Sigfox communications module for IoT connectivity. The Sigfox standard is energy efficient and wide-transmission-range technology that uses UNB (Ultra Narrow Band) based radio technology and offers low data-transfer speeds of 10 to 1000 bits per second. RS Components www.rs-online.com Digi-Key to provide symbols and footprints for 7.2M components Digi-Key Electronics has struck an exclusive, global agreement to distribute software and design data from Accelerated Designs and provide engineers and electronics manufacturers symbols and footprints for 7.2M components. The flagship product of Accelerated Designs is Ultra Librarian, which is used to create and export symbols and footprints in a format that is compatible with nearly any EDA tool depending on one’s license. This enables organizations or teams to maintain a central repository of common components or approved parts lists/ libraries (APLs) and allow individual engineers to use nearly any EDA tool they want to create their designs.
