Robotics hub reduces time-to-market

Arrow Electronics and eInfochips have established a Robotics Center of Excellence to help customers accelerate time-to-market for the development of automation solutions for manufacturing, digital factories and other industries. Arrow has teamed with Analog Devices, NVIDIA and Onsemi image sensors to develop reference designs and proof-of-concepts that robotics customers can leverage.

Arrow Electronics’ senior VP of global marketing and engineering, Aiden Mitchell, said: “The rapid adoption of artificial intelligence at the edge as well as applications such as autonomous machines will revolutionize the digital factory to enable the deployment and growth of Industry 4.0. Arrow Electronics is proud to work together with ADI to create a center of excellence to empower the intelligent edge through design services capabilities, reduce technology complexities and accelerate time-to-market.”

According to the International Federation of Robotics, robots and cobots in industrial manufacturing have doubled in the last five years.
