Digi-Key and Radiocrafts enter global disty agreement

Radiocrafts Wireless Radio Modules available globally with very short lead-time to electronic design engineers


Digi-Key Electronics has entered a global distribution agreement with Radiocrafts AS, a leading provider of RF modules, specializing in short lead-times on its RF modules and design tools.  

Radiocrafts provides surface mount RF modules for wireless networking in the ISM bands world-wide. The modules support industry standard protocols such as Wireless M-Bus, Sigfox and KNX-RF, and the proprietary protocols; RC232 for point to point and simple networks, TinyMesh, a lightweight mesh for all ISM bands and ZNM, a 2.4 GHz mesh protocol.

“Given the profile of Radiocrafts as a supplier of modules and tools that supports very short time to market, the next logical step for Radiocrafts was to sign a distribution agreement with a true global distributor with short lead-time, such as Digi-Key”, says Anders Oldebäck, sales and marketing director of Radiocrafts. “We see Digi-Key’s customer focus, great user experience and efficient product fulfilment as a great complement to ensure a short and risk-free development when using high quality products from Radiocrafts”. 

“Enabling customers’ access to easy-to-use, quality products is key to their success, whether it’s a simple cable replacement device or full-scale IoT deployments,” adds David Stein, VP global semiconductors at Digi-Key. “Radiocrafts’ offering across many wireless protocols including Zigbee, Sigfox, KNX and others in a very small sized module brings with it broad support for a large number of applications. The software tools are easy to use, the documentation is well done, and the mutual customer-first user experience makes this relationship a perfect fit.”
