Avnet and Partners to Showcase Latest Innovations in Battery Management Systems and Industrial IoT at South Asia Tech Days 2022 | Taiwan News

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – April 18, 2021 – Leading global technology distributor and solutions provider Avnet Asia will host a series of virtual expos and conferences for its Korean and South Asian customers, focusing on the two dynamic systems growth areas battery management (BMS) and industrial IoT (IIoT). Building on the success of last year’s “Avnet AI Cloud Exhibition and Conference”, the second installment is aimed at engineers, product managers and R&D specialists, and will span more than a month, from April 18 to May 20.

The event will showcase cutting-edge technology trends in the fields of BMS and IIoT, highlighting the prospects of smart manufacturing systems and the massive use of alternative energy. Visitors will be able to visit interactive booths and watch how-to videos of the latest products and solutions from Avnet and its partners. Two conferences on the BMS and the IIoT will be held on April 21 and April 28, respectively, during which the partners will host live webinars followed by Q&A sessions.

“Avnet is committed to collaborating with like-minded partners to contribute to the development and sustainability of smart manufacturing and energy ecosystems,” said Tan Aik Hoon, regional president of Avnet South Asia, Korea and Avnet United. “For example, the regional electric vehicle (EV) market is growing exponentially. We fuel its growth with innovative, safe and cost-effective solutions that will help developers overcome key barriers to EV adoption.
