(NAPSI)—A cross-country drive is shining a light on innovative people and products in the electronics industry.

The “Drive for Innovation” is a yearlong road trip made in a General Motors Chevrolet Volt. The electric vehicle was selected by the program sponsor, Avnet Express, as it exemplifies innovation.

Avnet Express, the e-commerce engine for Avnet Electronics Marketing, provides engineers with access to the world’s largest catalog of electronic component products. Many of the Volt’s components can be found in this catalog.

Driver Brian Fuller, editorial director, EE Life, UBM Electronics, is making periodic stops throughout the country to interview engineers, entrepreneurs, innovators, students and teachers.
