They offer Bluegiga’s customers strong expertise not only in our wireless communication technologies, but also with a great understanding of the computing, display and software technologies that surround them. We believe that they have the potential to take our OEM modules to a completely new market in Europe and we are excited to continue providing Avnet Embedded’s customers the best customer support available in the market.” Avnet Embedded will be supporting the recently added and exceptionally powerful WT41, the first truly long range Bluetooth module with1000m range.
