Global Power Technologies Group (GPTG), a full service, silicon carbide semiconductor manufacturer for the commercial power market, has reached an exclusive global distribution agreement with Digi-Key Corp.
As part of the agreement, GPTG’s product line will be extended to Digi-Key’s global customer base of 550,000 design engineers. GPTG specializes in 100MM and 150MM epi-wafers, SiC discrete diodes, SiC discrete MOSFETs, SiC modules and sub-systems for multiple market sectors.
“This deal becomes part of our global growth strategy to reach a broader set of customers,” says Michael DiGangi director of business development at GPTG. “Increasing demand for our low cost semiconductors has influenced our decision to align with a highly respected global distributor. Having proven their success with design engineers around the world, Digi-Key is a great fit for our product line.”
GPTG is a vertically integrated company and, under this structure, SiC technology is expected to be fully and economically deployed to meet the market demand by industry segments that desperately seek power system efficiency improvements. Due to vertical integration, GPTG cost for SiC products will reach silicon price points in the near future.
