Avnet Embedded has designed compute, display and software solutions for a large number of household brands for their market leading luxury devices, including:
Not so long ago, most domestic appliances only contained simple micro-controllers. Today, the rise of the Internet of Things and smart functionality has driven the shift from microcontrollers to microprocessors, and the shift from simple circuitry to full-scale computing. Something as simple as a desktop fan is now capable of being connected to the internet and controllable via a smartphone or even connected to a home control system and controlled via AI. This requires a big step forward in computing power and complexity, all while keeping the size of the device and its design as clean and simple as possible.
In many of these products, the original manufacturer wanted to include display or compute technology in their traditional appliance, but did not want to take on the risk of building such complex technologies in-house. By working with Avnet Embedded they tapped into a world class design, manufacturing, and integration resource that specialises in complex display and compute products and solutions. The result was that they were able to get their product to market faster, better and stronger than the competition with compelling new features and functionality that make their product stand out from the competition.
If you are designing a high-end consumer device or domestic appliance and need help embedding a display, smart computing, functionality, connectivity, software or other complex elements, get in contact with us today and we can work with you on your product.
Avnet Embedded can design, source, manufacture and assemble embedded displays and compute for your product design, as well as helping with software design, IoT infrastructure and other component sourcing. Avnet Embedded’s wide range of expertise, combined with unparalleled partner and supplier relationships and a global logistics platform, makes Avnet Embedded the perfect partner for multinational OEMs of high-end appliances.
Avnet Embedded designs and manufactures its own range of embedded compute modules designed for longevity and reliability. These modules can be combined with carrier boards or customized to fit the shape or other engineering requirements of the product. We manufacture the modules in-house in our state-of-the-art technology campuses in Europe, for the highest possible assurance of quality at a competitive price.
Avnet Embedded also partners with a wide range of other compute manufacturers to provide off-the-shelf or semi-customized compute solutions at any scale, as well as the connectivity and back-end systems required to make Internet-of-Things (IoT) enabled devices work fluidly.
Avnet Embedded’s Display Innovation experts lead the world in design and integration of displays and touchscreens. Exclusive relationships with the world’s leading display component manufacturers means we can provide the most appropriate solution for OEM customers looking for a display that sets their product apart from the competition.
Displays are critical in conveying the ‘luxury’ feel of a high end smart device, and we have developed displays for many household brand names’ flagship appliances. From simple segment LCD displays to advanced OLED touchscreens, Avnet Embedded can design and supply the best display for any situation.
Our Display Innovation team helps OEMs to overcome challenges in electromagnetic interference, water and heat resistance and ruggedization, and more.
Avnet Embedded’s Software Lab builds the software that makes the compute, displays, and cloud connectivity work perfectly. BIOS, drivers, firmware, operating system customization, IoT-connectivity and reporting, sensor calibration, and even GUI design – the software team can support you in taking your appliance to the next level.
Avnet Embedded brings together compute, displays, software and connectivity solutions to build powerful ‘full-stack’ HMI solutions for consumer and professional appliances.
We design the whole interface, from the front cover to the back panel. We test, source, manufacture and assemble in our own technology campuses and ship the unit to you ready to be incorporated into your product – or we can build the whole product for you too.
We reduce your development time and get your product to market faster than the competition.
Our rapid development platforms like SimplePlus and SimpleFlex can help you develop compute and display solutions in less than half the time it would normally take.
We make sure you’re taking advantage of the latest technological advances, making your product better.
Close relationships with chip and display manufacturers, and software companies, ensure you’re ahead of the curve on exciting new possibilities. A broad network of off-the-shelf hardware partners means you’ll always get the right solution for your scale and budget requirements.
