At Embedded World, under the heading ‘Think. Create. Produce,’ Arrow Electronics is showcasing a range of products and services that can assist members of the maker community in transforming their innovative ideas into production. Start-ups and established companies can all benefit from a suite of online tools that enable time-to-market to be shortened. Arrow will also be introducing three new products in the 96Boards specification at the show.

Visitors can learn how to benefit from Arrow’s relationship with crowdfunding pioneer, Indiegogo. Working with Indiegogo, Arrow is able to put critical resources in the hands of entrepreneurs, such as components procurement and online design tools.

Arrow will also demonstrate a free, integrated, cloud-based version of the Cadence OrCAD Capture design solution that makes it easier for design engineers and makers to integrate component research and selection within their design environment.

With the Internet of Things becoming an essential element of so many embedded projects, Arrow has developed a range of IoT solutions from individual components through modules, system on module (SoM) units, and more sophisticated proofs of concept. The Embedded World booth will feature a range of community boards together with Arrow’s own development modules including the SmartEverything IoT board, a prototyping platform for M2M applications, and a new entry-level variant of the ARIS IoT hardware and software platform.

On display for the first time will be three new products in the 96Boards specification, which defines a series of standardised form factors and a choice of processors to meet different price points. The new boards are named Meerkat, Chameleon96 and Oxalis.
