Arrow Electronics and its engineering services company, eInfochips to set up a High-Power Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Swindon, United Kingdom.
This CoE aims to assist customers in developing high-power solutions, a critical component in advancing electrification and sustainability initiatives.
High-power designs are quite important for getting energy efficiency and making them essential for various net-zero projects such as electric vehicles, renewable energy, battery storage, grid infrastructure, and other applications.
But there are some issues with high-power electronics design, which includes lack of power expertise, stringent functional safety and reliability requirements, intricate PCB layout, and the necessity for costly testing equipment, which pose challenges for innovators.
Arrow Electronics will help get rid of these issues. The CoE is equipped with a high-power lab in Swindon and an experienced engineering team from eInfochips. The goal is to empower innovators to navigate the complexities of high-power electronics design effectively.
“The ever-increasing focus on decarbonization is driving electrification. High-voltage electronics is a key enabler, and in Arrow Electronics, customers have a reliable team member to help them navigate this energy transition journey effectively,” said Murdoch Fitzgerald, vice president, global engineering and design services at Arrow Electronics. “The Swindon facility is known for its configurable power supply capabilities, and the CoE builds on its legacy by investing in new equipment and engineering talent. We can now offer turnkey design services from the Swindon facility.”
The High-Power CoE will design innovative and leading-edge products for all customers of Arrow and its subsidiaries, such as Richardson RFPD. By accelerating and de-risking design cycles, leveraging the power equipment in Swindon, and accessing a world-class engineering talent, customers can effectively plan and manage their high-power product roadmap and lifecycles.
