Element14 , part of the Premier Farnell Group, announces their global distribution partnership with Micrium – a leading supplier of embedded RTOS solutions in the engineering industry. In the agreement, Micrium will extend their product and marketing support to element14’s knode, an information board for engineering knowledge and electronic design solutions. The support will involve Mircrium’s range in OS, RTOS and Middleware products.
The global agreement also allows Micrium to collaborate on new product information with various users on the knode information board.
“This global distribution agreement with Micriµm is an integral part of our business strategy to enhance the element14 value proposition by continually developing and growing our already extensive line card of leading technology suppliers to satisfy the evolving requirements of our customers worldwide,” said David Shen, Group Senior Vice President and Global Head of EDE and Technical Marketing of Premier Farnell.
