Digi-Key and MEMSIC announce global distribution agreement
Press release [Friday 8 March 2013]

Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability, and delivery, recently announced the signing of a global distribution agreement with MEMSIC, a leading provider of MEMS sensor components, sophisticated inertial systems, and leading-edge wireless sensor networks.

"As technology tries to fit more and more functionality into smaller and smaller spaces, MEMS has grown exponentially in utilization," said Mark Zack, Digi-Key Vice President, Global Semiconductor Product. "By integrating IC and MEMS functionality, MEMSIC offers our customers a unique product to fill a growing need in their designs. We are pleased to partner with MEMSIC."

MEMSIC designs and manufactures integrated micro-electromechanical sensors (MEMS) using a standard integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing process. The company combines proprietary thermal-based MEMS technology and advanced analog mixed-signal processing circuitry into a single chip. This allows MEMSIC to produce high-performance accelerometers and other MEMS devices at substantially lower cost than most traditional processes.

"Digi-Key is recognized by design engineers worldwide for its excellent service, and for its access to readily available components they can count on for new designs," noted John Newton, MEMSIC Vice President of Marketing. "We are excited to be partnering with Digi-Key, and believe this agreement will significantly expand MEMSIC's global reach to design engineers looking for the latest in sensor technology."

MEMSIC's full line of MEMS products is available for purchase on Digi-Key's global websites: http://www.digikey.com/
