RS Components (RS) is now stocking low-power, high-performance analogue integrated circuit (IC) products developed by Touchstone Semiconductor and recently acquired by Silicon Labs to complement its embedded portfolio for the Internet of Things (IoT) market. RS will provide an inventory and logistics service for these analogue IC products in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific.
The Touchstone analogue products include operational amplifiers, analogue-to-digital converters, comparators, current sense amplifiers, power management ICs, timer ICs, voltage detectors and voltage references. These devices target a wide range of IoT, industrial control, consumer electronics and instrumentation applications and are all now available to purchase.
In addition to these core analogue IC products, Silicon Labs provides a selection of simple, affordable evaluation boards to expedite development time for design engineers using the range of Touchstone products. These evaluation boards too can be purchased from RS.
“Cost, performance, and fast availability are all key considerations for analogue designers,” said Jonathan Boxall, Global Head of Semiconductors at RS Components. “With its recent purchase of Touchstone’s assets, Silicon Labs now offers a broad portfolio of low-cost, high-performance analogue devices off-the shelf to help engineers achieve their design goals more quickly.”
