Digi-Key to distribute Seoul Semiconductor’s LEDs worldwide

Korean LED maker Seoul Semiconductor has entered into a global distribution agreement in which Digi-Key Corp (which claims to have the industry’s broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment) will distribute the full range of its products, from the smallest DC LED to Acriche (claimed to be the world’s first AC LED). The range will be available via Digi-Key’s websites (and will be featured in future print and online catalogs).

“With technology breakthroughs increasing brightness, or lumens per watt, at lower price points, the interest in LEDs continues to grow dramatically,” says Dave Doherty, Digi-Key’s VP of semiconductor product. “With products such as Seoul Semiconductor’s Acriche AC LED, we are confident a global partnership will benefit our customers,” he adds.

“We are pleased to partner with a distribution leader such as Digi-Key on a product opportunity where demand is growing with increasing intensity,” says Brian Wilcox, Seoul’s VP of North American sales. “The Digi-Key Lighting Partners Program will link our customers to the entire eco-system surrounding the LED, helping them get to market faster.”
