The global electronics distributor Digi-Key is a longstanding distribution partner of Würth Elektronik eiSos. Digi-Key now distributes another product group from the Würth Elektronik eiSos range: wireless modules. The product range encompasses highly efficient wireless transmission solutions in the Bluetooth or Wireless M-Bus standard as well as proprietary wireless modules in the frequency ranges 169, 433, 868, 915 MHz and 2.4 GHz. Thanks to their low power consumption, these high-quality, compact components are ideal solutions for decentralised IoT and smart metering applications.
Digi-Key is supplied by the Würth Elektronik eiSos “Wireless Connectivity and Sensors” division. This strategic business unit was formed at the beginning of April 2018 through the integration of the previously autonomous subsidiary Amber wireless GmbH. This formation made Würth Elektronik eiSos, a manufacturer of components, also a dependable partner for low-power ISM/SRD wireless solutions worldwide. Here the Wireless Team contributes two decades of experience in the development of wireless solutions to the newly founded division.
New products for longstanding partner
“Digi-Key is excited to continue to expand the Würth Elektronik portfolio into the wireless modules space,” says David Stein, vice president, Global Supplier Management at Digi-Key. “These products will bolster our offering of Bluetooth products, radios and M-Bus technologies. We look forward to serving the global engineering community with this exciting technology.”
Lars Fahrbach, executive and responsible for the field of Global Distribution & New Markets, is convinced that Digi-Key, together with Würth Elektronik eiSos, will advance the new Wireless Connectivity product line: “Digi-Key’s global presence and excellent added values and services enable us to make our wireless modules accessible to an even broader audience.”
