Dialog Semiconductor Signs a Global Distribution Agreement with Avnet

19 July 2016

Power management and solid state lighting house Dialog Semiconductor PLC has expanded its distribution agreement with Avnet, Inc. to include the Americas, EMEA and Japan regions.

Previously, Dialog had an agreement with Avnet for only distributing its products in China. Under the deal, Avnet will be able to distribute Dialog’s complete portfolio of semiconductor standard products worldwide. For Dialog, the expanded agreement will allow its power-saving standard product technology portfolio to be offered on a global scale, including its SmartBond Bluetooth low-energy system on chips, power management ICs and RapidCharge AC/DC power conversion solutions.

“By collaborating with Avnet, Dialog is dramatically increasing the exposure of our innovative mixed-signal products to a much broader set of customers,” said Tom Sandoval, senior VP of worldwide sales at Dialog. “Avnet's sales and expert technical support will enable us to capture business in fast-growing and emerging markets, aligning with Dialog's commitment to continued growth.”
