LONDON -- Premier Farnell [LON:PFL], a leader in global electronics distribution and design solutions, has today announced it is to extend its relationship with ARM through the launch of the latest series of ARM Cortex™-M3 and Cortex–M4 processor-based STM32F2xx and STM32F4xx Development Kits across its distribution footprint in EMEA, China, and the Americas.
The deal will see the kits shipped with Keil™ MDK-Lite Development Tools and the ULINK-ME™ Debug Adapter. This follows the announcement of a franchise agreement with ARM in the Americas earlier this year. Developers will benefit from support by Premier Farnell’s ARM trained engineers, the element14 ARM development tools group and rich technical content, video support materials, and design examples on the Knode on element14. The new Development Kits will also be centre stage in element14’s benchmark RoadTest Group where design engineers test and review new products, posting their results and findings on the element14 Community.
The Cortex-M3 processor-based STM32F2xx and the Cortex-M4 processor-based STM32F4xx devices featured on the boards have the flexibility to reduce power consumption in applications requiring both high processing power and low-power performance when running at low voltage or on rechargeable batteries.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
