Digi-Key Electronics has expanded its product portfolio by signing an exclusive global distribution partnership with Helix Semiconductors.
Helix Semiconductors’ power management technology enables high power density and efficiency in a compact design by eliminating transformers in power conversion applications. The supplier holds more than 40 patents related to their MuxCapacitor technology, which allows for more compact and efficient solutions in power conversion. They are ideally suited for end applications that require high power density in a smaller space.
“Selecting Digi-Key as our global distribution partner was an obvious choice due to their size and reputation in the channel,” said Harold A. Blomquist, president and CEO of Helix Semiconductors. “Our goal is to make it easy for customers to get our parts quickly. Digi-Key is playing a critical role in our mission to make efficient, smaller, lighter, cooler power supplies and products possible. We’re pleased to partner with Digi-Key, an undisputed industry leader.”
The manufacturer currently offers six different types of development boards and kits, and 15 regulators through Digi-Key.
Specifically, Digi-Key will carry Helix Semiconductors’ MxC 200 family of configurable, high-efficiency 15W DC-DC power ICs – including board products, evaluation boards and parts.
“We are excited to partner with Helix Semiconductors and offer their wide range of high-performance products to our global customer base,” said David Stein, vice president of global supplier management for Digi-Key. “Helix Semiconductors has an impressive commitment to research and development, and continues to offer innovative products. Designers will benefit from the increased power density of Helix Semiconductors, which allows them to develop power supply applications without the traditional need for a transformer.”
