As part of an effort to reach electronic designers outside of the United States, programmable logic supplier MathStar Inc. has tapped Arrow Electronics Inc. as its second global distributor.
MathStar in January launched an all-out sales and marketing campaign that included assembling networks of manufacturers representatives throughout Europe and Asia, and bringing on Mouser Electronics as a worldwide distribution partner.
In Arrow (Melville, N.Y.), MathStar gets a vast resource of design-in and sales support along with the capability to handle high-volume fulfillment and supply chain management.
"With the addition of Arrow, we now have a fully deployed global sales channel
to support our customers from the design and prototyping stage to production in the Americas, Europe, or Asia Pacific," said Glen Wiley, vice president of sales for MathStar (Hillsboro, Ore.).
MathStar's Arrix line of field-programmable object arrays adds breadth to Arrow's programmable logic portfolio, which includes leading suppliers Altera and Lattice Semiconductor.
