Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry’s broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced the availability of electronic components from Parallax Semiconductor.
Parallax Incorporated’s new semiconductor division was created to provide support for OEMs with volume commercial applications using the company’s ICs. Initially the company’s chips, such as the innovative Propeller multicore MCU, were primarily used in their own products. Now the company is taking their IC strategy to the next level in response to growing interest from commercial OEMs.
“We believe the engineering community will be pleased with this new addition to Parallax’s product line,” said Mark Zack, vice president of semiconductor product. “Digi-Key supports this expansion from hobbyist focus to full OEM design and production supply chain focus.”
“As our chip sales to outside customers grow, we understand they benefit from our ability to tailor a technology and business relationship that uniquely meets their needs. We want to make it easy for commercial customers to exploit the advantages our chips have to offer. Parallax Semiconductor gives us an organization designed from the ground up to do just that,” said Ken Gracey, Parallax Inc.’s vice president.
The new division offers custom design services and turnkey product design and manufacturing, allowing OEMs to speed time to market and to reduce development costs.
Parallax Semiconductor’s products are available for purchase now on Digi-Key’s global websites.
