Akros Silicon Inc., Sunnyvale CA, supplier of leading-edge intelligent energy management ICs, announced a global distribution agreement with Digi-Key Corp.
Akros’ products help manufacturers of electronic equipment create more efficient and advanced products, which in turn enables end users to reduce their energy usage.
“With the growing number of Power over Ethernet applications and designs, Digi-Key is the perfect channel partner to make Akros’ integrated isolation technology available to a global network of design engineers,” said Pete Klessel, VP worldwide sales at Akros Silicon. “We are excited that this partnership will bring best-in-class product accessibility and service to our customers.”
Akros’ proprietary GreenEdge digital isolation technology enables integration by eliminating the traditional isolation barrier to create a Power System-on-a-Chip (Power SoC) solution. Each SoC replaces “bag of chips” designs with flexible and efficient platform solutions that shrink the design footprint and lower the bill-of-material costs—all while delivering enhanced end-to-end system capability.
“Power-over-Ethernet is in high demand with our customers seeking power integration solutions,” adds Mark Zack, Digi-Key’s VP, global semiconductor roduct. “The GreenEdge technology offered by Akros provides dynamic power-level adjustment, higher power conversion efficiency and reduced cost, all in a compact, flexible package.”
