Arrow adds ConnectBlue wireless solutions

LONDON — Arrow Electronics has signed an agreement to distribute connectBlue’s products and services in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic countries, together with the U.K. and Ireland.

ConnectBlue (Malmö, Sweden) is a provider of wireless solutions for industrial automation, medical, instrumentation, diagnostics, logistics/transportation and point of sales. Based on Bluetooth technology, WLAN and IEEE 802.15.4 (ZigBee), it supplies off-the-shelf products and modules as well as custom design solutions in both hardware and software.

“ConnectBlue has a close relationship with NXP, as does Arrow. This new agreement means that our customers will be able to develop wireless-enabled products using connectBlue modules based on NXP semiconductors knowing that, should they move into high volume production, they can migrate to discrete NXP semiconductor solutions with Arrow. Similarly, customers who are intending to develop using discrete ICs will have the ability to prototype using connectBlue modules,” said Mats Andersson, Arrow Nordic subsystems marketing and engineering director.
