Premier Farnell signs worldwide stocking distribution deal with SemiSouth

Multi-channel electronics distributor Premier Farnell plc has announced a worldwide stocking distribution agreement with SemiSouth Laboratories Inc of Starkville, MS, USA, which designs and manufactures silicon carbide (SiC) diodes and transistor technology for high-power, high-efficiency, harsh-environment power management and conversion applications.

SemiSouth’s SiC diodes and junction field-effect transistors (JFETs) will be made available via Premier Farnell’s operating brands Farnell (in Europe), Newark (in the USA, Canada and Mexico) and element14 (in Asia Pacific), and will be stocked at all of its warehouses worldwide. Further product information documents are also made available via the element14 online community, and the new agreement will also be supported via the element14 knode, Premier Farnell’s online design platform that is exclusively focused on the needs of electronic design engineers.

“This is our first major catalogue outlet and we are excited about the new project opportunities it will drive,” says SemiSouth’s director of sales Dieter Liesabeths.

Through Premier Farnell’s global distribution network and element14, Semisouth’s products can be ordered in bulk and are available for next-day delivery. Local language websites and regional offices ensure that Premier Farnell’s customers receive sales and technical support on all its product lines.

“Our vast customer base will benefit from the leading performance of the SemiSouth products," comments David Shen, group senior VP & global head of technical marketing of Premier Farnell. “These diodes and JFETs are a perfect fit for applications such as solar inverters, hybrid electric vehicles, industrial motors, computing and defence, and we will be able to introduce them to design engineers working in these applications,” he adds.
