u-blox Signs Global Distribution Agreement with Digi-Key

u‑blox has extended its distribution agreement with Digi-Key for global sales. In 2016, u-blox partnered with Digi-Key for exclusive distribution of their products in the United States. Under the new agreement, u‑blox will now appear on all Digi‑Key websites worldwide, including 80 country websites that together trade in 28 different currencies.

The collaborative partnership will extend the availability of u‑blox technology to regions that the company has not yet reached, as well as making it more accessible to designers working in mid-sized companies and startups. Digi‑Key’s global footprint will make it easier to ensure that customers get fast access to evaluation kits, development boards and product samples. u‑blox should also get enhanced insights into it where its customers are based, what they want, and how they prefer to access it.

The extended new partnership aligns with u-blox’s global strategy and together, the companies will be able to support customer designs worldwide and provide fast  access to development tools, evaluation boards, modules and silicon, making customers’ lives easier and u-blox’s business relationships more effective.

With this agreement in place, Digi-Key will provide a one-stop shop for customers who need any type of cellular, timing, positioning or short range communications products. The strong portfolio of u‑blox products in these areas will also map well to Digi‑Key’s technical marketing and services offering.
