Avnet Silica partners with Digi International for IoT technologies

Avnet Silica, an Avnet company, has been appointed as a franchised distributor for the EMEA region for products from Digi International, the Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services provider.

Recently, Avnet was appointed one of Digi International’s global distribution partners. Avnet Silica has therefore become a major channel in the EMEA region to service the fast-growing market for Digi International’s wireless products and technologies.

“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 recognised for its advanced wireless and system on modules (SOMs) for industrial markets and with Digi XBee RF modems and cellular modems. In addition, Digi International is a preferred partner for NXP, which further augments   Avnet Silica’s wireless portfolio, based around NXP’s semiconductor technologies. All of Digi International’s products and technologies will be available via Avnet Silica, yet RF and embedded SOMs for industrial IoT markets and applications will remain a key focus for the distributor.

“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. He added that the Digi International product portfolio complements the distributor’s industrial IoT solutions.
