1/2/2003 - After several years of supporting two distributors in its North American distribution channel, AeroComm has ended its distribution contract with Future Electronics. The dissolution of this partnership designates Avnet RF & Microwave as Aerocomm's sole distributor in North America.
"By consolidating our distribution channel, we expect to increase our focus on design-in response and support for all levels of customers," said Chris Hutchison, Distribution Business Manager of AeroComm. "Avnet's newly formed Wavelength Design Solutions (WDS) business unit was one of the key factors in our decision."
Avnet's WDS business unit was created to help meet the growing demand from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), original design manufacturers (ODMs), and enterprises that plan to incorporate wireless technology into their end products, but do not necessarily have the technical expertise and or resources to do the job internally.
WDS will provide such customers with a total wireless integration solution by offering them AeroComm's leading edge wireless products and extensive design services to directly support their custom requirements. WDS serves many OEM markets, including, enterprise, medical, industrial equipment, automotive, POS and consumer.
Formed in 1990, AeroComm was the first manufacturer to gain FCC approval for 2.4 GHz direct sequence spread spectrum transceivers in 1994. Since then, the company has shipped hundreds of thousands of wireless connectivity devices for OEMS and SOHO OEM markets. In 1996, AeroComm's technical focus became frequency-hopping due to its reduced cost, lower power consumption, higher interference immunity and smaller size. Today its proprietary methods of implementing spread spectrum technology enable wireless applications that were previously cost-prohibitive. The ConnexRF line offers a variety of standard OEM RF transceivers as well as custom solutions for major OEMs. Visit AeroComm's web site for more information, www.aerocomm.com.
