Arrow Electronics and Bourns collaborate to accelerate electrification

Arrow and Bourns have announced their strategic collaboration to assist customers in the development of high-power solutions, a critical component in advancing electrification and sustainability initiatives.

High-power designs require an extensive amount of customised magnetic components from a knowledgeable supplier experienced in developing solutions for high-frequency applications. Arrow, as part of this collaboration, will leverage Bourns’ expertise in customised magnetic development.

High-power designs are increasingly being developed as it plays a pivotal role in achieving energy efficiency. These are essential for various net-zero projects such as electric vehicles, renewable energy, battery storage, grid infrastructure, and other applications. The adoption of high-power designs is further boosted by the development of Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFETs and Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Pseudomorphic High-Electron-Mobility Transistors (pHEMTs).

The complexities associated with high-power electronics design, including lack of power expertise, stringent functional safety and reliability requirements, intricate PCB layout, and the necessity for costly testing equipment, pose challenges for innovators. Arrow Electronics has recently opened its High-Power CoE in the UK to address these challenges.
