ACTIVE-SEMI INTERNATIONAL Inc., and INELTEK GmbH announced at Embedded World 2014 a new agreement for distribution of ACTIVE-SEMI‘s power management IC and digital motor drive IC portfolio. The pact covers the EMEA along with markets in Germany, UK/Ireland, Italy, Russia and Austria.
The diverse European market requires highly competitive power management solutions with high performance and flexibility. ACTIVE-SEMI offers analog and mixed signal SoC scalable core platforms used in charging, powering and embedded digital control systems for end applications such as industrial, commercial and consumer equipment. The portfolio includes Power Application Controllers™, PMU, DC/DC, AC/DC, and LED drivers that significantly reduce solution size and cost while improving system-level reliability.
At Embedded World 2014, ACTIVE-SEMI is showcasing live demonstrations at the INELTEK booth (Hall 1, Booth 420), including:
- Advanced Motor Control Platforms (BEMF sensorless, sensored, FOC) with Power Application Controllers
- Atmel SAMA5 XPLAINED evaluation kit PMICs (power management ICs), ACT8865 and ACT8945A, also shown in Atmel booth at Hall 4A-220
- Qi-Certified, Wireless Power Charger Solution with PAC5220WP IC
- PowerBank and Secondary Battery Charging SoC Solutions with ACT28xx
“We are happy adding ACTIVE-SEMI as a reliable partner to introduce our customers to a broad range of integrated power management products. Their Power Application Controller uniquely integrates into one complete system-on-a-chip what is traditionally served by an MCU plus several discrete analog components,” said Bernhard Sonnentag, CEO at INELTEK. “ACTIVE-SEMI‘s solutions will help us offer faster design time, decrease PCB area, and increase reliability while also reducing cost.“
“We are pleased to partner with INELTEK, who is a recognized specialized design-in distributor of electronic components,” said Mark Cieri, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ACTIVE-SEMI. Cieri continues, “INELTEK offers a high-level of localized customer focus and technical support necessary to accelerate our European growth.“
INELTEK GmbH was established over 25 years ago and is now one of the top-ranking distributors of electronic components in the European market place. The linecard includes leading suppliers of semiconductors, displays and passive as well as electromechanical components. A technical, design-orientated team focuses its engagement on their customers' demand. More information on INELTEK is available on www.ineltek.com
