Arrow Electronics recently signed a global distribution agreement with Bosch Sensortec to supply Bosch Sensortec products. Bosch is a major supplier of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) sensors. The company has expanded its products based on automotive applications to the consumer electronics market and now offers a variety of MEMS device combinations for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Since 1995, Bosch has designed and manufactured more than 8 billion MEMS sensors and has more than 1,000 patents for MEMS technology. Its own expertise is driving product roadmaps, supporting software and reference designs to enable mobile and IoT devices to feel and perceive the world around them. Bosch Sensortec currently offers a wide range of highly integrated sensor products for IoT node requirements for applications such as Smart Home and Industry 4.0.

Arrow's IoT product portfolio includes a comprehensive range of hardware components, development platforms and software tools that are linked together by services to provide the broadest range of IoT products. Arrow and Bosch Sensortec will work together to find opportunities for inertial, environmental and smart sensors in applications including wearables, smart homes, building automation, industrial 4.0, home robots, toys, augmentation and virtual reality and drones. With the integration of multiple sensors in a single device, shrinking the package size to meet energy efficiency and space requirements, Bosch Sensortec's sensor data fusion software helps achieve optimal application performance. The software separates static and dynamic acceleration and 3D tilt compensation, eliminates magnetic distortion, and determines the sensor's calibrated resting position.

Stefan Finkbeiner, CEO of Bosch Sensortec, said: “This agreement brings together two of the most dynamic companies dedicated to the Internet of Things. Its product portfolio can help companies accelerate product development, deployment and long-term management. We look forward to cooperation. Success."

Aiden Mitchell, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Arrow Internet of Things, said: "Bosch Sensortec has created a great combination to meet the needs of the industrial Internet of Things. Bosch's highly integrated products and software solutions complement Arrow's innovation. The blueprint for the entire cycle of design and product termination."
