Digi-Key & GeneSiC Sign Distribution Agreement

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation has signed an agreement to distribute GeneSiC Semiconductor’s industry-leading silicon-carbide technologies worldwide.

Founded in 2004, GeneSiC Semiconductor has grown into a world-leader in silicon-carbide technology. Many of their products are used in applications aimed at conserving energy in numerous high power systems, running faster, cooler, and more efficiently. This efficiency makes these silicon-carbide products ideal for increasing efficiency in energy harvesting applications.

”Digi-Key was the missing piece to our distribution program. This agreement enhances GeneSiC Semiconductor’s ability to seed the market with our brand of Silicon Carbide High Voltage, High Temperature, and first of their kind (1N8XX SiC Diode/2N76XX SiC Transistors) Mil-Standard products,” said Michael DiGangi, Chief Business Development Officer at GeneSiC Semiconductor. GeneSiC has the largest portfolio of commercial SiC diodes, offering a best in class SiC switch, the Super Junction Transistor (SJT), which will revolutionize IGBT and FET designs for engineers who have been looking for higher performance. GeneSiC Semiconductor is also committed to a portfolio of silicon, high-voltage rectifier products with the best forward voltage in the market today. While others have abandoned this market, GeneSiC Semiconductor has been investing in new and exciting products.

“We are excited to add GeneSiC Semiconductor to our expansive line card,” said Mark Zack, Vice President, Global Semiconductor Product at Digi-Key. “Adding suppliers as committed to innovation as GeneSiC Semiconductor affirms our commitment to providing the newest, state-of-the-art products to our customers.”

GeneSiC Semiconductor’s broad portfolio of efficient, high-performance products is available for purchase on the Digi-Key website.
