Digi-Key Electronics signs sensing specialist, Aceinna

Sensor, autonomous vehicle guidance and power management by Aceinna are now available from Digi-Key Electronics, following a global distribution agreement.

The partnership is part of Digi-Key’s Marketplace initiative, broadening what it claims to be the world’s largest selection of electronic components and making the distributor more of a one-stop-shop than ever before, says the company.

Amongst the Aceinna products available are real time kinematic (RTK), inertial navigation system (INS) tilt and inertial measurement unit (IMU) products, including the OpenIMU300RI IMU (pictured). Digi-Key will also supply Aceinna’s current sensing products used for power supply and management in data centres, server farms, electric vehicles and lorries, large industrial machines, and commercial appliances.

David Stein, vice president, global supplier management at Digi-Key. “Aceinna’s latest generation of IMUs feature a triple-redundant architecture, all wrapped in small, low-cost packaging that, when combined, meet the challenging performance, reliability and cost requirements of the robotic and autonomous market.”

Aceinna’s integrated, anisotropic magneto resistive (AMR) -based isolated current sensor family is a single chip solution with one of the industry’s highest bandwidths, fastest response times and highest accuracy, says Digi-Key. It is suitable for high power conversions including those using fast switching wide bandgap silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power switches.

Aceinna provides sensing solutions for automotive, industrial, telecomms, data centre and cloud infrastructure, consumer appliances, agricultural and construction market sectors. Its precise positioning products MEMS-based, open-source, inertial sensing systems that enable centimetre-accurate navigation systems for autonomous systems.

Aceinna’s isolated current sensor product family is based on an AMR technology that enables industry leading accuracy, bandwidth and step response in a simple, cost effective single chip form factor.

Aceinna has R&D facilities in San Jose, California, Andover, Massachusetts and Chicago, USA and manufacturing facilities in Wuxi, China.
