Digi-Key Corporation and E Ink Sign Global Distribution Agreement
THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA – Global electronic components  distributor Digi-Key Corporation, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability and delivery, today announced a global distribution agreement with E Ink . This partnership allows Digi-Key to offer E-Ink’s innovative, standard segmented displays to their worldwide customer base.
Unique to the industry, the E Ink’s electronic paper displays (EPD) offer ultra-low power performance, a small form factor, and rugged operation. The reflective display technology used in EPDs allows display of an image even with no power connected. This enables engineers and designers to add displays to products where power and space limitations have made it impossible to do so in the past.
“The move towards implementing low-power has become ubiquitous within the electronics industry,” said Mark Zack , Vice President, Global Semiconductor Product at Digi-Key. “As the only manufacturer of this groundbreaking technology, E Ink’s products provide unmatched value for our customers, and we are delighted to add them to our expansive line card.”
"E Ink is very fortunate to have a partner like Digi-Key taking the lead in our distribution program for segmented displays," said Rob Williams, Director of North American Sales at E Ink. "The combination of Digi-Key's robust infrastructure and technical resources, along with E Ink's unique bi-stable display technology, will be instrumental as we scale this important part of our business."
