element14, a distributor of electronic components, products and solutions has today announced the launch of its new Industrial Embedded Computers online hub. This dedicated online resource will provide design engineers with the information on cutting-edge industrial single board computers (SBCs) used in IoT and edge computing environments.
The 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 element14’s innovative range of online calculators, conversion charts and component selection tools available from the Technical Resource Centre.
A recent global survey from the company 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.
“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,” says Romain Soreau, head of single board computing at element14.
element14 provides customers with fast access to easy-to-use products for professional use with a broad range of core SBC platforms and toolkits from leading brands including Raspberry Pi, Intel (NUC range), Industrial Shields, KUNBUS and more.
