Future Electronics has been appointed by Agilent Technologies as a franchised distributor throughout Europe.
This agreement extends a partnership with Future that exists for north America, and primarily covers the Agilent range of transceivers and ICs for fibre optic communications.
It includes Agilent's storage area network products, chipsets for wireless applications, imaging solutions and a broad range of optoelectronic components.
Derek Tibbitts, director of the European distribution channel for Agilent, said: "The appointment of Future Electronics throughout Europe builds on the very successful track record established over a number of years in the Americas as well as on our strategy to ensure a balanced and efficient network of partners."
Graeme McGrory, Future Europe vice-president and MD, added: "The broad Agilent portfolio of high-performance semiconductor packages represents an excellent fit with the needs of our customer base and fully complements our existing stock lines."
