Bangalore: Global tech solutions provider Arrow Electronics announced it has provided engineering support to Bharat Pi, an India-based tech startup. Arrow Electronics enabled Bharat Pi to design and build enterprise-grade IoT development boards that deliver benefits of reliability, quality and scalability to millions of smart and connected devices.

The demand in India is expected to increase at a 34% CAGR over the next ten years, as per Future Market Insights‘ IoT device management platform analysis. The adoption of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) in the manufacturing industry and the increasing usage of technologies such as 5G, AI, and Big Data are expected to continue fueling this demand.

Founded in 2020 by Prabhu Stavarmath, Savitri Patil, and Naveen Gopalkrishna, Bharat Pi has set out on a mission to accelerate IoT development by building cost-effective IoT development boards to help developers, startups, and innovators to convert their ideas into a quick pre-sales demo in hours.

Bharat Pi is also one of the incubates at IoT Open Lab in Bangalore, a collaboration between Arrow Electronics and the Software Technology Park of India (STPI). With the help of Arrow and its global technology suppliers, Bharat Pi has recently launched the RedPill STM32G0 series-based development board.

“Todays’ enterprise IoT applications like industry 4.0, remote asset monitoring, healthcare, connected automobiles, and smart cities require a massive network of robust and connected edge devices which can handle large amount of data collection and processing and deliver real-time responses. Some of the IoT development boards in the market are not designed to handle diverse AI or machine learning workflows and often require custom design efforts to build a prototype,” said Prabhu Stavarmath, Chief Business Officer, Bharat Pi.

“Arrow’s engineering team has provided us with everything we need, from product knowledge, technical insights, to evaluation. Their technical expertise and supply chain experience have enabled us to jump-start and scale up the design and manufacturing of IoT development tools, so that we can in turn to extend our plug-and-play offerings to the broader IoT developer community,” added Stavarmath.

“Today’s IoT ecosystem requires ample technology competencies which span from product idea, design and engineering to supply-chain and manufacturing. With our global network of technology suppliers and world-class technology capabilities, we are well positioned to extend best possible support and help Bharat Pi as well as many other technology companies as they strive to simplify and scale up IoT deployment,” said Bhartendu Mishra, Arrow Electronics’ MD of India.
