Company Description
Microsemi Corp. is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of analog, mixed-signal, programmable logic, digital, and discrete semiconductors and complete systems. The company's products provide manage and regulate power, source and synchronize time, protect against transient voltage spikes, process, store, transmit, receive and amplify signals and data. It’s products serve the aerospace & defense, communications, data center and industrial markets by delivering power efficiency, reliability, security and performance.
Founded in 1983, Advantech is a leader in providing trusted innovative embedded and automation products and solutions. Advantech offers comprehensive system integration, hardware, software, customer-centric design services, and global logistics support; all backed by industry-leading front and back office e-business solutions.
Nordic Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ultra low power (ULP) short-range wireless communication. The company’s range of 2.4GHz transceiver and transmitter devices are employed by some of the world’s leading brands in a wide variety of applications like wireless keyboard and mouse, game Controllers, and intelligent sports equipment. Nordic is a member of the ANT+ Alliance and has successfully collaborated with ANT Wireless of Cochrane, Canada, since 2005. ANT devices– using Nordic 2.4GHz transceivers and the proven ANT protocol – have been used in millions of wireless sensor nodes across the world. ANT is perfectly suited for any kind of low data rate sensor network topologies in Personal Area Networks (PANs) and practical Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Nordic’s products are all manufactured in state of the art semiconductor process technologies through strong, long-term relationships with world-best manufacturing facilities. Nordic is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange. All operations are managed according to the ISO 9001:2000-approved quality Assurance system.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Limited (TSMC; Chinese: 台灣積體電路製造公司; pinyin: Táiwān Jītǐ Diànlù Zhìzào Gōngsī), also known as Taiwan Semiconductor, is the world's largest dedicated independent (pure-play) semiconductor foundry, with its headquarters and main operations located in the Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
PCTEL, Inc., a global provider of RF expertise, delivers Performance Critical Telecom solutions to the wireless industry. PCTEL benchmarks and optimizes wireless networks with its data tools, engineering services, and RF products. PCTEL's antennas and site solutions are vital elements for networks serving SCADA, fleet management, health care, public safety, and education.

Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Avnet, Inc. focuses exclusively on the unique needs of embedded OEMs, solution providers, and independent software vendors. Our broad range of product lifecycle management services provide flexible options that support you from solution development through delivery including concept design, engineering, manufacturing, systems integration, order management, warehousing and logistics.

IoT Solutions
Microsemi’s broad portfolio—including ICs, systems, software, IP and ecosystem solutions–is inherently optimized for IIoT Ethernet networking applications and needs.
Advantech has always been an innovator in the development and manufacture of high-quality, high-performance computing platforms. They cooperate closely with our partners to help provide complete solutions for a wide array of applications across a diverse range of industries. To realize our corporate vision of Enabling an Intelligent Planet, Advantech will continue collaborating and Partnering for Smart City & IoT Solutions.
Whilst still in its infancy, the Internet of Things (IoT) is in part evolving by using Bluetooth Smart as an underpinning technology. Bluetooth Smart is rapidly being adopted for short-range wireless connectivity between compact, coin cell-powered accessories using RF sensors and smartphone ‘hubs’ supporting associated software applications. The ARM mbed initiative is a collaborative industry project that plans to nurture the IoT. The initiative delivers tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks for the rapid development of ARM-based devices. The collaboration between Nordic Semiconductor and ARM has resulted in Nordic’s nRF51822 System-on-Chip (SoC) which combines a Bluetooth v4.1-compliant 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio with an ARM Cortex-M0 CPU core on a single chip optimized for ultra-low power operation. The nRF51822 Series offers developers the ideal platform for designing the wirelessly-connected sensors that will help turn the IoT from a technological concept into reality as the mechanisms to transfer IP data from sensor nodes begin to appear.

At Avnet Embedded, our customizable, off-the-shelf OEM server, storage and networking solutions from world-class manufacturers, coupled with our vertical industry knowledge, data center expertise and cloud know-how ensure your products and solutions are optimized for the future - regardless if you are deploying your solution physically, virtually or in the cloud. Pursuing a partnership with Avnet means shifting your focus back to what really matters. - Increasing your profitability - Scaling your operations - Accelerating your time-to-market - Fostering innovation By leveraging Avnet’s investments in those areas, you’ll spend less time worrying about inventory, operating and support and be free to direct more time and resources back into driving sales of new products that differentiate you from your competition.
