Digi-Key to distribute Bridgelux’s LED products worldwide

LED lighting and chip making firm Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA has entered into an agreement in which electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corp of Thief River Falls, MN, USA will distribute its products to customers worldwide (available now via Digi-Key’s global websites, and to be featured in future print and online catalogs).

The agreement gives Digi-Key’s customers access to Bridgelux's entire portfolio of LED array products, including neutral-white color temperature (4100K) LED arrays (launched last month).

Bridgelux offers solid-state light sources delivering 240 to 4500 ‘hot’ lumens across a broad range of color temperatures. The portfolio of UL-recognized arrays provides wide-ranging options for developing replacement lamps and luminaires for a market rapidly transitioning to energy-efficient lighting, the firm adds.

“The demands of an emerging customer base vary greatly between discrete HB-LEDs, arrays to fully turn-key solutions,” says Dave Doherty, Digi-Key’s VP of semiconductor product.

“Digi-Key’s exceptionally broad range of products and its world-class customer service have made it an industry leader,” comments Bridgelux’s VP of worldwide sales Dave Barnby. “We are impressed with Digi-Key’s Lighting Solutions Technology Zone approach, consolidating solid-state lighting products on their website, simplifying component selection for lamp and luminaire design engineers.”
