RS Components has signed a franchise agreement with Abracon, a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronisation, RF, connectivity and power components destined for deployment in markets such as industrial, communications and automotive, as well as the emerging generation of IoT applications.
The distribution deal covers the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions and provides RS customers with fast and easy access to Abracon’s diverse portfolio of products, which includes quartz timing crystals and MEMS oscillators, real-time clocks, RJ45 jacks with magnetics, power and RF inductors, wireless charging coils, antennas and other RF devices.
Key advanced technologies for Abracon include advanced design, simulation and testing of Pierce oscillators and RF antenna systems. Able to diagnose in-circuit performance of crystals in low-power IoT devices, the Pierce oscillator system (PAS) test service exposes design flaws before they impact the application’s reliability.
Antenna tuning services complement Abracon’s advanced electromagnetic simulation and design capabilities to provide customers with a fast track to market in complex RF and wireless designs.
