Sales infrastructure underpins RF connectivity

Arrow Electronics has signed an agreement with Sunway Communication that will see it offering and supporting Sunway’s portfolio of RF connectivity components and modules throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa.


The initial focus will be Sunway Ultra-Wideband solutions including modules and development kits based on NXP Semiconductors’ Trimension UWB portfolio for applications including device tracking, real-time locating systems and access control. The devices use time-of-flight and angle-of-arrival measurements to determine relative positions in three dimensions.


Sunway Communication’s VP, Robert Berg, said: “Arrow’s extensive engineering and sales infrastructure is perfectly suited to support new customers in the adoption of our expanding standard product portfolio, as well as for customized products.”


NXP Semiconductors’ senior marketing manager for UWB mobile and IoT solutions, Peter Pirc, added: “This agreement with Arrow, with whom NXP has a strong and well-established relationship, is a welcome development that will enhance the choice and possibilities available to the market.”
