ELECTRONICS: The Avnet Electronics Marketing operating group of Avnet Inc. has become the first distributor certified by Renesas Technology America, Inc. to program the company’s security IC product, Board ID™. In order to obtain the certification, Avnet’s programming centers had to meet the stringent programming, secure product handling, and key management procedures required for providing value-added support for this technology.
Renesas is a leading supplier of Board ID solutions, which enable machine-to-machine authentication to protect code and consumables, and authenticate access to the processor. Customers can now receive training directly from Avnet field application engineers (FAEs) that have been certified to deliver technical support for customers looking to adopt Renesas Board ID in order to protect their intellectual property against piracy and cloning.
