Thursday, June 23, 2011 - THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn., and Fremont, Calif. USA, Electronic components  distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industryâ??s broadest selection of electronic components  available for immediate shipment, has signed a global distribution agreement with Intematix Corporation , a leading innovator of patented remote phosphor components for high-quality LED lighting.
Mark Zack, Digi-Key's vice president, semiconductors said, â??Digi-Key is proud to welcome Intematix to our Solid State Lighting product base. Intematixâ??s unique ChromaLit remote phosphor products enhance efficacy and smooth radiation patterns required by designers.â?
Intematix develops innovative LED lighting solutions that are grounded in the companyâ??s patented phosphor technology. Compared to conventional LED designs, where blue chips are coated with a phosphor compound, the ChromaLit Collection, now available through Digi-Key, leverages a phosphor composite separated from the blue LED energy source. This architecture provides unparalleled design freedom, more efficient manufacturing processes, exceptional light quality and up to 30 percent higher system efficacy.
â??Intematixâ??s global distribution with Digi-Key is a crucial step to better serving our customers,â? said Julian Carey, Intematixâ??s director of marketing. â??The range of the ChromaLit remote phosphor product family, coupled with the blue LEDs, drivers and other key components that Digi-Key offers, provides luminaire designers and manufacturers rapid access to innovative solutions.â?
