GLOBAL TECH­NOL­OGY SO­LU­TIONS provider Ar­row Elec­tron­ics, Inc. has signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with In­fi­neon Tech­nolo­gies, a Ger­man semi­con­duc­tor and sys­tem so­lu­tions provider, to pro­vide start- up busi­nesses in New Zea­land, Aus­tralia, South East Asia and In­dia, 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 Pte. Ltd. “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, star­tups con­stantly face chal­lenges to stay ahead of the game. 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,” said Natara­jan MM, vice pres­i­dent of sales for South Asia of Ar­row’s Asia- Pa­cific busi­ness. “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, in­clud­ing an­nounc­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tion with AIR­maker, a Sin­ga­pore- based In­ter­net of Things (IoT) ac­cel­er­a­tor. Ar­row has been help­ing the AIR­maker pro­gramme start- ups 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. They have great busi­ness ideas and the vi­sion to con­trib­ute to the na­tion,” said Kwai Seng Lee, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, AIR­maker. “Global tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies such as Ar­row bring tech­nol­ogy know- how and en­gi­neer­ing ex­per­tise that can help start- ups through­out their idea-toim­pact in­no­va­tion jour­ney.”
