Digi-Key to distribute Global Power Technologies' SiC products worldwide

As part of its growth strategy to reach a broader set of customers, Global Power Technologies Group (GPTG) has announced an exclusive global distribution agreement with US-based Digi-Key Electronics, a provider of both prototype/design and production quantities of electronic components.

As a full-service silicon carbide (SiC) manufacturer for the commercial power market, GPTG produces 100mm and 150mm epitaxial wafers, SiC discrete diodes, SiC discrete MOSFETs, SiC modules and sub-systems for multiple market sectors.

Digi-Key is an online source for purchasing electronic components, featuring local websites, 24x7 technical support and multi-lingual customer service. As part of the agreement, GPTG's product line will be extended to Digi-Key's global customer base of 550,000 design engineers.

"Increasing demand for our low-cost semiconductors has influenced our decision to align with a highly respected global distributor," says Michael DiGangi director of business development at Global Power Technologies Group. "Having proven their success with design engineers around the world, Digi-Key is a great fit for our product line," he believes.  

GPTG is a vertically integrated company and, under this structure, it expects SiC technology to be fully and economically deployed to meet market demand from industry segments that are seeking improvements in power system efficiency. SiC product cost are hence expected to reach silicon price points in the near future.
