Arrow Electronics Inc has announced an expanded agreement with the Wolfspeed division of Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA, positioning it as the largest global distributor for Wolfspeed’s silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) product portfolio.

“We are pleased to build upon and expand our franchise to include both Wolfspeed’s power and RF solutions,” says David West, senior VP of global marketing and engineering at Arrow. “This agreement offers our customers a greater range of technology options that will enable continuous product innovation,” he adds.

“Wolfspeed’s heritage as a pioneer of GaN-on-SiC technology for RF applications is well established and offers an attractive value proposition to our customers who are evolving the technology marketplace,” comments Rafael R. Salmi Ph.D., president of Richardson RFPD (an Arrow Electronics company that specializes in the RF and wireless communications, power conversion and renewable energy markets). “This agreement offers a strategic advantage in that we can now provide the optimal RF power solutions to meet our customers’ diverse needs,” he adds.

“Arrow’s global sales force enables us to reach more markets and customers quicker and more efficiently through a proven partner solution,” says Thomas Wessel, senior VP of global sales & marketing.

In its booth #412 at electronica 2018 in Munich, Germany (13-16 November), Arrow is featuring an Internet of Things (IoT)-connected 150kW off-board charging station that relies upon Wolfspeed’s SiC technology.
