NXP and Digi-Key co-operate on production-volume supplies

January 14, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Joining Digi-Key's Hybrid Distribution Model, NXP is using the channel to support supply of production quantities of its semiconductor devices, in addition to development levels. Digi-Key has previously announced its move to supply higher-volume quantities as designs move from development to production.

Pierre Laboisse, Senior Vice President at NXP Semiconductors, comments, “We see tremendous value in Digi-Key’s hybrid model as a means of reaching a more diverse production audience.” As trends in distribution have necessitated on-demand resources, as well as greater speed and flexibility in the supply chain, NXP saw value in positioning Digi-Key as a key partner in accelerating global growth.

Mark Zack, Vice President, Global Semiconductor Product at Digi-Key, confirms the intention to, “...enable component suppliers such as NXP to offer a more complete, ‘Prototype to Production,’ supply-chain solution.”
