Electrocomponent has launched OKdo, a global technology business to focus on single board computing (SBC) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The company’s goal is to provide end-to-end support for all SBC and IoT segments, spanning makers, entrepreneurs, industrial designers, educators and re-seller partners.
Under the banner 'Design the World,' it will combine hardware, software, development support, and manufacturing services. "OKdo is a testament to our passion for innovation," said Electrocomponents CEO, Lindsley Ruth. "It brings SBC and IoT customers the latest products, solutions and ideas to inspire and enable them to create technology that makes life better."
OKdo will build on existing relationships with SBC leaders including Arduino, BeagleBone and Raspberry Pi. Their website, www.okdo.com, is now live in seven countries: the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, U.S. and Japan. According to Claire Doyle, OKdo's Global SVP, Commercial, "SBC and IoT are demanding disruptive markets that expect imagination, creativity and technical expertise in abundance. OKdo brings a truly global proposition to deliver not just hardware, but the support and services that customers in these segments need to thrive and succeed."
