Avnet Bolsters Embedded Computing Offering with ADDC Line in the Americas
Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, today announced a distribution agreement with Arnouse Digital Devices Corp. (ADDC), a N.Y.-based manufacturer of high-performance, small form-factor x86 pluggable computers, servers and high security devices. Avnet will now offer Americas’ customers in markets including military, healthcare, security and cloud computing, a standard x86 pluggable computer platform that can help accelerate the design of mobile devices, wearables and a range of IoT-enabled systems.
Founded in 2002, ADDC’s flagship product is its BioDigitalPC®, a credit card-sized, pluggable computing card designed to give users an interchangeable compute platform with unprecedented levels of flexibility, compute capacity, miniaturization, power conservation and ultra-high security. The BioDigitalPC weighs less than two ounces, has the equivalent compute power of a traditional server and is both waterproof and shockproof. ADDC also recently introduced its patented Mobyl Data Center (MDC22), a suitcase-sized mobile data center that holds twenty-two x86 servers housed in a rugged case no bigger than an average carry-on suitcase.
“ADDC’s vision to solve the technology industry’s challenges around form factor, power consumption and even waste removal and infrastructure value with our hot swappable, rugged, credit card-sized x86 BiodigitalPC compute platform has been widely embraced in the defense, security and intelligence verticals,” said Michael Arnouse, CEO of ADDC. “With Avnet’s extensive supply chain experience and expertise in embedded and integrated technologies, we will be better positioned to expand our reach to new customers in additional markets, including enterprise and commercial.”
“The technology industry is continually challenged to do more with less, creating devices that are ever-smaller, more portable and energy efficient, yet capable of withstanding a range of environmental factors,” said Jeff Ittel, senior vice president, Avnet’s embedded organization. “Until ADDC came along, the majority of the progress in this miniaturization trend was made within ARM-based architectures. ADDC’s BioDigitalPC provides a powerful x86 computer the size of a credit card, so our customers can create nearly any system they desire while not having to worry about developing miniaturized computer components to support their designs.”
