Cree expands LED components distribution network with Avnet

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has announced a strategic agreement with global technology distributor Avnet Inc that expands coverage in the Americas for the distribution of Cree's portfolio of LED components including high-power, chip-on-board (COB), high-brightness and LED modules.

"Adding Avnet to Cree's industry-leading distribution network demonstrates Cree's continued investment in and commitment to its LED business," says Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs. "Combining Cree's LED technology with Avnet's dedicated team of LED-focused Illumineers and state-of-the-art LightLab [in Chandler, AZ, USA] will accelerate the adoption of the next generation of LED solutions that combines lighting with IoT [the Internet of Things]."

Cree has a broad portfolio of application-optimized, lighting-class LED components. With more than 4000 patents, Cree offers high-power LEDs for applications such as street, outdoor area, stadium, retail spot and high-bay lighting.

"Avnet and Cree share a commitment to not only facilitate the transition from conventional filament and fluorescent lamps to LED lighting, but to also help our customers bring true intelligence to lighting," comments Alex Iuorio, senior VP, supplier development, Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. "With the support of Avnet's Illumineers and LightLab and Cree's portfolio of components and modules, we can provide designers who want to leverage the IoT to add more value to their products with easy-to-implement solutions that will reduce development time and cost, while fast-tracking time to market."
