Success in the Americas region has led u-blox to name Digi-Key as a global distributor extending the partnership between the two companies. u-blox will now appear on all Digi‑Key websites worldwide.
“u-blox has always been a global provider and this partnership with Digi Key aligns with that strategy,” said Suresh Ram, President, u-blox Americas. “u-blox and Digi Key together will be better able to support customer designs worldwide and provide fast access to development tools, evaluation boards, modules and silicon, making our customers’ lives easier and our business relationships more effective.”
“We’re excited to take this next step with u-blox after seeing the success of their products with our customers in the Americas,” said David Stein, Vice President of Global Supplier Management at Digi Key. “This expansion brings a powerful and innovative cellular, short range radio and GNSS product offering to our customers in every region around the world.”
The collaborative partnership with Digi Key will extend the availability of u-blox technology to regions that the company alone has not yet reached, as well as making it more accessible to designers working in mid-sized companies and start ups.
Digi Key’s global footprint will give customers fast access to evaluation kits, development boards and product samples. u- blox should also get insights into it where its customers are based, what they want, and how they prefer to access it.
With this agreement in place, Digi Key will provide a one stop shop for customers who need any type of cellular, timing, positioning or short range communications products.
