Arrow to distribute Cree’s SiC-based power electronic devices

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has announced a distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics Inc for its silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor components.

The agreement gives Arrow’s customers access to Cree’s latest commercially available SiC junction barrier Schottky (JBS) products. Among the products available through Arrow will be the recently released Z-REC Series of 600V Schottky diodes and the 1200V Schottky diode line.

“Expanding our Cree product offerings from [their] high-brightness and high-power LEDs to now include power products provides our customers even broader access to the products and support they need,” says Robert Behn, VP of supplier marketing for Arrow Electronics.

“Together, Cree and Arrow intend to accelerate the adoption of silicon carbide power semiconductors to create more efficient switching power supplies, alternative energy converters and motor drives,” says Bob Pollock, Cree senior VP, sales.
