Arrow and Infineon to support Australian start-ups

Global technology provider Arrow Electronics has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Infineon Technologies, a German semiconductor and system solutions provider, to provide start-up businesses in South-East Asia, India, Australia and New Zealand with innovative products and engineering support to help them accelerate the idea-to-impact innovation journey.

“Infineon offers a wide range of microelectronics that connects the digital world of data with the real world of things, from sensors to security chips,” said Chua Chee Seong, President and Managing Director, Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific. “Infineon’s collaboration with Arrow will offer start-ups the capabilities and innovations to develop the next generation of intelligent and intuitive devices.”

“With technologies rapidly evolving in the last few years, start-ups constantly face challenges to stay ahead of the game,” added Natarajan MM, Vice President of Sales for South Asia for Arrow’s Asia-Pacific business. “They are often in need of engineering expertise, especially in areas such as wireless connectivity, sensing and controlling and system integration. This is where Arrow can come in to bridge these knowledge gaps and accelerate turning innovative ideas to impactful inventions/businesses.

“We are excited to extend our longstanding collaboration with Infineon and put a wide range of Infineon innovative products in the hands of the innovators and engineers, especially in the areas of autonomous car, electrified low-speed vehicles, robotics, Industry 4.0, and smart home and city applications.”

Arrow is committed to supporting the start-up ecosystem in Singapore, recently announcing a collaboration with Singapore-based IoT accelerator AIRmaker. Arrow has been assisting with the AIRmaker start-up program, helping participants to become more effective and productive in their idea-to-impact product journey by overcoming technical challenges and gaining critical IoT technology know-how, to turn a design into a product ready to be manufactured.

“As a start-up accelerator, we have seen a lot of talented entrepreneurs and promising start-ups in Singapore who are ready to take off and thrive,” said AIRmaker Managing Director Kwai Seng Lee.

“Global technology companies such as Arrow bring technology know-how and engineering expertise that can help start-ups throughout their idea-to-impact innovation journey.”

The Arrow–Infineon MoU was signed at Infineon Technologies’ OktoberTech Asia event last month, where industry players showcased solutions around the future of mobility, robotics, smart living and smart cities. The event featured keynote speeches, concurrent technical tracks and an innovation showcase of nearly 40 mobility, smart living and robotic applications.
