Digi-Key To Distribute GeneSiC Products

The electronic component distributor will supply the firm's silicon carbide power devices globally


Digi-Key Corporation has signed an agreement to distribute GeneSiC Semiconductor’s power electronic products based on SiC technologies.

Founded in 2004, GeneSiC Semiconductor's products play a key role in conserving energy in numerous high power systems, running faster, cooler, and more efficiently. This efficiency makes these cutting-edge SiC 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," says Michael DiGangi, Chief Business Development Officer at GeneSiC Semiconductor.

GeneSiC has one the largest portfolios of commercial SiC diodes, offering SiC switches and the Super Junction Transistor (SJT). These devices are aimed at revolutionising IGBT and FET designs for engineers who are looking for higher performance.

The company is also committed to a portfolio of silicon, high-voltage rectifier products with one of the best forward voltages 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," says 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's broad portfolio of efficient, high-performance products is available for purchase on the Digi-Key website.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
