Arrow Electronics to Distribute Anaren

MELVILLE, N.Y. — Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW) has signed a global distribution agreement with Anaren, Inc., a leading supplier of microwave and RF technology for aerospace and defense, wireless infrastructure and consumer electronics applications.

“We’re working with Arrow on this initiative because they have tremendous experience with and an excellent reputation in supplying the broader electronics market.”

Under the agreement, Arrow customers in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions will now have access to Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules. Incorporating Texas Instruments’ low-power RF technology, these modules are used for industrial control, building automation, low-power sensor networks, lighting, and smart-grid equipment and appliances, among others.

“Anaren is a solid addition to Arrow’s linecard, enabling us to offer an RF solution focused on Texas Instruments (TI),” said Jeff Eastman, senior vice president global supplier marketing and asset management for Arrow Electronics. “We now offer a plug-and-play option for customers looking for a simple, low-cost, FCC-certified module based on TI's low-power RF radio chipsets.”

“Until now, the lion’s share of our components were targeted to manufacturers in the wireless infrastructure space, specifically companies that secure technology from distributors who specialize in RF technology,” says Mark Bowyer, the business development manager for AIR with Anaren’s Wireless Group. “We’re working with Arrow on this initiative because they have tremendous experience with and an excellent reputation in supplying the broader electronics market.”
