Avnet has launched a range of new embedded software services for its system builder partners across EMEA.
The services will be provided via Avnet Embedded, an autonomous subsidiary of the distribution giant's components-focused Electronics Marketing division. The unit is unveiling a septet of new services, including a development kit created by the distributor that allows users to build and test images for Windows embedded licensing.
A generic training offering for those wishing to gain an overview of Windows embedded image creation is also being launched, alongside programmes more geared towards specific topics or customer needs. An Image Solution Kit containing guides, drivers, sample images and other tools is also offered, as is an onsite audit service provided by an engineer. Avnet Embedded will also be providing an image creation offering, as well as installation and production services.
Director Nick Donaldson said: "Our clients can rest assured that when working with Avnet Embedded, it's not just about shifting boxes [and] licences. In order to leverage the really powerful embedded features in the Microsoft embedded software range and get maximum benefit, it is crucial to have the best technical support and knowledge.
"At Avnet Embedded we understand how to get the best from the available tools and recognise the potential pitfalls. With our software services portfolio we can help customers at any stage of the design lifecycle to build, manage and deploy Microsoft embedded."
