Ideal Power signs deal with Richardson Electronics


Discrete B-TRAN devices and SymCool power modules to be distributed globally

Ideal Power, developer of the patented B-TRAN bidirectional semiconductor power switch, has announced an agreement with Richardson Electronics for the global distribution of Ideal Power's products including the discrete B-TRAN device and SymCool power module

"We are excited to announce Richardson Electronics as the first distributor for our products. They have strong technical sales capability, expertise in demand creation and securing sales for new technologies, robust customer support, and global reach. Our products are a perfect fit for Richardson Electronics' existing customer base needing medium and high voltage power semiconductors," said Dan Brdar, president and CEO of Ideal Power.

"We are very excited to work with Ideal Power to bring their products to market worldwide. For years, Richardson has developed an excellent portfolio of Technology Partners for power management components and engineered solutions," said Greg Peloquin, executive VP and general manager of Power & Microwave Technologies and Green Energy Solutions groups. "Ideal Power's products are an innovative and complementary addition to this portfolio, providing low loss and inherently bidirectional power semiconductors to customers globally for use in a wide variety of industrial applications."

Ideal Power recently commenced shipment of its SymCool power modules to fulfill customer orders. The SymCool power module delivers advantages for several applications, including solid-state switchgear and circuit protection, renewable energy inverters for solar and wind, industrial inverters, hybrid and electric vehicles ("EVs"), and EV charging.

Ideal Power says it looks forward to industrial markets, particularly the solid-state circuit breaker market served by the SymCool power module, to be the earliest source of the company's sales ramp beginning in the second half of 2024.
