EBV Elektronik and Taoglas sign Europe-wide agreement
Effective immediately, EBV Elektronik, an Avnet company has signed a Europe-wide distribution agreement with Taoglas.
The manufacturer provides SMD, external and embedded antennae for M2M and IoT applications. According to Oliver Kanzler, director Vertical Segment RF & Wireless at EBV the portfolio is “a great addition to our portfolio enabling our customers to get access to leading technology and solutions as well as benefitting from in-depth application know-how and industry expertise.” He adds “Besides the performance of the RF communication IC or wireless module, the efficiency and reliability of the antenna in conjunction with its mounting position in a system is crucial to achieve the best possible link range”. Taoglas also offers cable assemblies and RF connectors, allowing the distributor to provide a complete ecosystem, including services like pre-certification testing, layout review and customised antennae, with various mounting options.
Ronan Quinlan, joint CEO and co-founder, Taoglas believes the agreement marks a partnership that will benefit customers and IoT development. “The challenges in the wireless market are that the applications become ever more complex and varied, the range of products increase, whilst time to development shortens. No one company can provide the answer. So partnerships between the leaders in IoT are needed more than ever to find the ‘signal in the noise’! We provide the . . . antenna. . . , and EBV’s logistical capabilities will provide products at shortest delivery times to customers large and small. The most important differentiator for us is that EBV has offices and real FAE engineering support in nearly every European country. All are backed up by a core team of wireless specialists, meaning our mutual customers receive real in person support with the solution to their needs.”
