Avnet covers each layer of the software stack with technologies and experts to match

  • A Full Suite of Operating System Platforms: There’s more than one way to approach a design and lots of factors that’ll influence your decision. Our team is well versed in all of the major operating systems and will help you determine which will enable the functionality you want to deliver.

    We’ll show you how your system will perform when the operating system is running on your processor architecture. We’ll also cover board support packages (BSP) so your board and operating system smoothly fit together.
  • Middleware: The Tie that Binds: There are lots of ‘moving parts’ in the layer between your operating system and the application layer with the user interface. The middleware in your system will include drivers and interfaces that connect with the different components of your design.

    Our team will walk you through the steps to achieve the required interoperability which is especially critical for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.
  • The Look and Feel that Keep Your Customers Coming Back: The best user interfaces are that ones that include eye catching graphics and intuitive navigation. You want the best and we know how to get you there.

    We’ll show you how to implement responsive designs to give your customers a consistent experience across their PC, tablet and mobile devices. We’ll share best practices for connecting data bases and other underlying applications to really make your application shine.
  • Development Tools Bring All the Pieces Together: To create bug free code and keep it fresh, you’ll need tools for writing your code, emulating it in your environment, debugging and other tasks.

    We’re your source for software development kits (SDK), emulators and the rest of the tool chain. Our experts will get you up and running quickly and answer any questions you have along the way.

We’re able to guide you through the software development process no matter how you deliver your application. We work with developers who design from the chip level up, use embedded hardware, a finished server or build apps to run in the cloud. Avnet has the complete stack and experts to help you get your software code up and running. We’ll make sure every part of your software image performs the way you want it to.

We cut the red tape when it comes to software licensing

The thought of working through contracts, licensing options and pricing models is probably not something you look forward to. We get it and have a team of licensing experts who’ll explain the different options and help you make the best selection.

You’ll really appreciate our ability to bring together multiple software vendors and show you how to streamline end user licensing agreements (EULA). Avnet even has services to take care of this on your behalf. Your customers won’t know that we’re handling the details and you’ll deliver a smooth engagement without taking on the work yourself.
