Arrow's High-Power Center of Excellence in Swindon.

Arrow opens a high-power design center

  • Arrow Electronics and its engineering services company, eInfochips, have announced the creation of a center of excellence dedicated to the design of high-power electronic power solutions.
  • Located in Swindon, UK, the center’s mission will be to help companies develop the high-power solutions essential for electrification and sustainable development projects.

High-power electronic power systems are at the heart of various “net zero” projects, such as the development of electric vehicles and batteries, as well as renewable energy production.

However, according to Arrow, designers face a number of challenges, including a lack of power supply expertise, stringent functional safety and reliability requirements, complex PCB layouts and the need for expensive test equipment.

Arrow Electronics’ high-power center of excellence will help solve these problems, with a high-power test laboratory and a team of eInfochips engineers based in Swindon (130 km west of London).

This center will be able to offer turnkey design services and will design products for all Arrow customers and its subsidiaries, such as Richardson RFPD.
