Digi-Key takes Energy Micro MCUs global
Digi-Key has added Energy Micro’s EFM32 Gecko microcontroller products to its distribution linecard in Europe and around the world.
Energy Micro has a range of 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers as well as supporting software tools and development kits for power critical applications including metering, alarm/security and portable medical.
“We’ve already seen, through our North American agreement with Energy Micro, that there is strong market interest in their low power microcontroller solution,” said Dave Doherty, Digi-Key’s v-p for semiconductors.
According to Geir Førre, Energy Micro’s president and CEO, the supplier is looking to reach design engineers with “some very real energy management problems to solve”.
The EFM32 microcontroller development kits feature a energy monitoring facility to provide designers with a graphical energy debugging tool enabling early identification and removal of adverse energy drains.
