Renesas acquisition of Dialog strengthens Farnell’s semiconductor portfolio

Farnell has been able to extend its semiconductor portfolio following the acquisition of Dialog Semiconductor by Renesas Electronics.

Renesas has been a major supplier to Farnell and the recent integration of the Dialog product range means that customers will now have access to more advanced embedded solutions for Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial IoT (IIoT), infrastructure and automotive applications. Dialog’s product range complements Renesas across embedded processing, analogue, power, and connectivity.

Farnell’s customers will now have access to more than 35 Winning Combinations of compelling product packages featuring complementary products from Renesas and Dialog, which work together to deliver comprehensive solutions.

The new Winning Combinations options focus on vertical markets including IoT, IIoT, infrastructure, automotive and other consumer segments. With these engineering-vetted designs, engineers will be able to leverage an elevated platform for their design ideas, accelerating the product development cycle and lowering overall risk as they look to bring new designs to market.

According to Lee Turner, Global Head of Semiconductors and SBC at Farnell, “The completion of this acquisition builds on Renesas’ long-term strategy to offer leading-edge, complete solution sets that deliver both value and innovation to customers. We are excited to be able to offer our customers more than 35 new Winning Combinations which include compelling product combinations for embedded computing, analogue, power and connectivity. These complimentary products are now available from a single manufacturer, offering our customers faster time to market with cutting edge technologies.”
