OSRAM's North American partnership for Nu Horizons

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Inc has announced a partnership agreement throughout the USA, Canada and Mexico for the distribution of its LEDs, silicon photo- detectors, optical sensors, infrared emitters, high-power laser diodes, organic LEDs (OLED) and intelligent display products via Nu Horizons Electronics Corp, a global distributor of semiconductor, display and system solutions. The aim is to "broaden our opto semiconductor products reach and allow greater penetration into our key target markets," says president and CEO Tom Shottes.

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors says it focuses its product offering on growing markets such as general illumination, projection, LCD display backlighting, automotive interior and exterior lighting, and mobile communications with
organic and classic light emitting diodes used as innovative light sources.

"This partnership provides Nu Horizons an entry into the lighting market and allows our company to synergistically work with multiple partners across our line card to satisfy diverse customer requirements," says Dave Bowers,
president of Nu Horizons Distribution Division. "We are particularly excited about OSRAM's innovative OLED offering. It's a great addition to our flat panel display business."
