Phoenics to Carry Vitesse ICs

17 October 2014

Phoenics Electronics has signed a distribution agreement with Vitesse Semiconductor and will carry the company’s line of integrated circuits used in enterprise and Internet of Things networks.

Under the agreement, Phoenics, based in Acton, Mass., will handle demand creation and fulfillment of Vitesse’s full product portfolio in North America effective immediately.

“Vitesse’s products are highly complementary to Phoenics’ existing line card, which opens further opportunities even within our existing customer base,” said Peter Rooks, president of Phoenics Electronics. We look forward to leveraging our mutual synergies and strengths.”

Phil Richards, vice president of sales at Vitesse, said his company’s North American customer base is growing. “Our design win momentum continues at a record pace, up over 45 percent so far in 2014, with many of those wins coming from new customers.” He said Phoenics will boost Vitesse’s ability to serve an increasingly diversified customer set in North America.

Vitesse is headquartered in Camarillo, Calif.

In other distribution news, RS Components, the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, has launched an online Internet of Things design center that provides software design tools and resources for rapid prototyping and product development.

Hosted under Design Centres, the IoT page includes the latest blogs and a series of articles written by partners, DesignSpark community members and leading Industry experts to aid engineers designing IoT-enabled applications.

Pete Wood, DesignSpark community manager at RS Components, said by 2020 there could be as many as 26 billion devices connected to the Internet, each with its own unique ID.

“Together these connected devices create the Internet of Things (IoT), allowing us to control and monitor remote devices via the Internet,” he said.
