Arrow Electronics and its engineering services company, eInfochips, have announced the creation of a high-power Center of Excellence (CoE) in Swindon, United Kingdom. The purpose of this High Power CoE is to assist customers in the development of high power solutions, a critical component in advancing electrification and sustainability initiatives.

High-power designs play a critical role in achieving energy efficiency, making them essential for various net-zero emissions projects, such as electric vehicles, renewable energy, battery storage, grid infrastructure, and other applications. However, the complexities associated with high-power electronics design, including lack of power expertise, stringent functional safety and reliability requirements, intricate printed circuit board design, and the need for expensive test equipment, pose challenges for innovators.

Arrow Electronics' high-power CoE is strategically positioned to address these challenges. Drawing on its extensive experience in high voltage design, the CoE has a high power laboratory in Swindon and an experienced eInfochips engineering team. The goal is to empower innovators to navigate the complexities of high-power electronics design effectively.

“The increasing focus on decarbonization is driving electrification. “High voltage electronics is a key enabler and, in Arrow Electronics, customers have a trusted partner to help them navigate the energy transition effectively,” said Murdoch Fitzgerald, vice president of global engineering and design services at Arrow Electronics. . “The Swindon facility is known for its configurable power supply capabilities, and the CoE builds on its legacy by investing in new equipment and engineering talent. “We can now offer turnkey design services from the Swindon facility.”

The high-powered CoE will design innovative, cutting-edge products for all Arrow customers and its subsidiaries, such as Richardson RFPD. By accelerating and de-risking design cycles, leveraging power teams in Swindon and accessing world-class engineering talent, clients can effectively plan and manage the roadmap and lifecycles of their high power products.
