Farnell adds Renesas Electronics to product portfolio
Distributor, Farnell, has expanded its embedded systems offering with the addition of the Renesas Electronics range. Engineers can now access Farnell’s widest range of analogue and embedded products, all in stock and available for same day dispatch, and delivery next day in many parts of Europe, says the company.
Farnell will stock over 1,500 products from Renesas, with 30 per cent available for re-reeling. Renesas supplies advanced microcontroller, analogue, mixed-signal, power, and system-on chip (SoC) products for markets as diverse as automotive, industrial, cloud computing and the internet of things (IoT) and for the smart factory and smart infrastructures.
Farnell will include Renesas products including the Renesas Synergy microcontrollers. The Synergy range integrates multiple series of software and pin-compatible Arm-based 32-bit microcontrollers that share a common set of Renesas peripherals to deliver the design scalability, power consumption, code-reusability, and performance needs for the embedded market.
Another product is the ISL9241 USB-C combo buck-boost battery charger which enables engineers to optimise mobile computing system performance. It can be used for products with USB-C power delivery functionality. It supports both narrow voltage direct charging (NVDC) and hybrid power buck-boost (HPBB) charging, and switches between the modes using firmware control.
There are also the RAA210xxxx digital power modules. The simple digital power modules eliminate power-supply design complexity, explains Farnell. The RAA210825 for instance, is a pin-strap configurable 25A step-down PMBus-compliant DC/DC power supply module that integrates a digital PWM controller, synchronous MOSFETs, power inductor, and passive components.
Farnell will also offer a wide range of complementary support devices including precision analogue, power management and mixed-signal interface products from Renesas and continue to supply industry leading RF, high performance timing, memory interface, real-time interconnect, optical interconnect, wireless power, and sensor solutions from IDT, a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics.
Farnell is part of Avnet, a global technology solutions company, and customers also benefit from the Avnet eco-system of support meaning that they no longer need to identify, review and take on board a new partner at every phase of their product production. Instead, they can have one partner throughout their product development cycle, saving time and money.
