Avnet Silica has started selling products from Digi International in the EMEA region. It follows the signing of a global distribution agreement between the two companies. Digi International is a supplier of advanced wireless and System-on-Module (SOM) solutions for industrial markets and with Digi XBee RF modems and cellular modems.

“It’s a privilege to announce an extended relationship with Avnet. As a leading EMEA distributor of electronic components, Avnet Silica allows Digi International to deepen its presence throughout the region,” says Chris Bowen, Digi International vice president, EMEA sales.

Digi International is also a preferred partner for NXP, which further augments and strengthens Avnet Silica’s portfolio of wireless solutions that are based around NXP’s advanced semiconductor technologies. While all of Digi International’s products and technologies will be available via Avnet Silica, a key focus for the distributor will be in the area of RF and embedded SOMs for industrial IoT markets and applications.

“Digi International is fast making itself into one of the world’s leading vendors of secure and highly reliable wireless components, technologies and solutions for a range of industrial markets, including food services, facilities monitoring, retail and healthcare, as well as the transportation and logistics sectors,” said Laurence Dellicott, Director Supplier Management at Avnet Silica. “The Digi International product portfolio is also an excellent complement to our existing industrial IoT solutions, and we look forward to bringing these innovative technologies to market.”
