Digi-Key Corporation has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with Power Integrations, a supplier of high-voltage analog integrated circuits (ICs) used in power conversion. A global distributor of electronic components, Digi-Key currently ships product in more than 140 countries.
Power Integrations' ICs enable manufacturers to produce small, simple, energy-efficient power supplies for an array of consumer and industrial electronic products. The company’s EcoSmart technology dramatically reduces the amount of energy wasted by power supplies, allowing manufacturers to meet all current and proposed energy efficiency regulations for electronic products.
"With growing customer interest in the cost savings offered by improved energy efficiency and more rigorous and widespread regulations for energy efficiency, we at Digi-Key are excited about offering our customers Power Integrations' EcoSmart solutions," said Mark Larson, president and COO of Digi-Key Corporation. "These innovative products will provide our customers with a cost-effective choice when designing energy-efficient power supplies."
"Digi-Key's expanding worldwide presence and high level of service make them an ideal distribution partner for Power Integrations," said Bruce Renouard, vice president of worldwide sales for Power Integrations. "We look forward to a highly productive partnership serving the global power supply market."
Power Integrations products will be featured in Digi-Key's print and online catalogs and will be available for purchase directly from Digi-Key. The new franchise agreement with Power Integrations will allow Digi-Key to fulfill the design and production needs of its global customer base.
