Author:OMO Release Date: Sep 6, 2019


Digi-Key Electronics has expanded its product portfolio by signing a global distribution partnership with Directed Energy.

The partnership adds to Digi-Key’s existing range, which comprises over 8.7 million products available from more than 800 manufacturers.

Directed Energy provides ready-to-use modules for driving laser diodes as well as applications requiring a high-voltage pulse. The company says its modules allow users to focus on their end use or product with ready-made solutions to provide high current and high voltage pulses to scientific, industrial and commercial applications.

Directed Energy’s products are designed to cater to applications that require, for example, a high-current pulse designed to drive a laser diode, or high-voltage pulse designed for the operation of deflection grids or for beam steering.

The company has been designing and selling pulsers for over 30 years. This industry experience has seen it create a suite of standard products that it says designers look to when they need a high-quality, fast pulse of current and/or voltage.

“We are excited to partner with Directed Energy and offer their ready-to-use modules to our global customer base,” said David Stein, vice president of global supplier management for Digi-Key. “Directed Energy has an impressive lineup of off-the-shelf modules that provide high-quality pulses of high current and/or high voltage for a variety of applications, from LiDAR to ADAS, laser diode characterization, precision measurement, and physics and scientific experimentation.”
