Distributor Digi-Key ships Tronics’ MEMS gyro sensors

Distributor, Digi-Key, is now shipping Tronics’ microelectromechiancal systems (MEMS) gyro sensors and Gypro evaluation boards, following a new distribution agreement between the two companies.

The agreement expands Tronics’ distribution network. According to Pascal Langlois, CEO at Tronics, the deal “will enhance the exposure of Tronics’ high performance inertial sensors through a responsive and reliable supply chain, while bringing value and differentiation to Digi-Key’s product portfolio.” He adds “This agreement demonstrates our willingness to continuously provide our targeted markets and customers with tailored solutions for their very demanding applications, including a leading-edge range of inertial devices as well as plug-and-play evaluation kits.”

Tronics’ products are used in applications that require precise measurement, such as precision instrumentation, platform stabilisation, guidance and navigation control, auto-pilot, inertial measurement unit (IMU), attitude and heading reference system (AHRS), flight control and back-up instrumentation, unmanned and autonomous vehicles, pipe inspection, three-dimensional mapping, and robotics.

“We are excited to partner with Tronics,” says Tom Busher, vice president, Global IP&E at Digi-Key, adding “The ability to offer Tronics’ MEMS gyro sensors and Gypro evaluation boards will assist our engineering customers in the design and prototype stages. . . We think they will find value in the accuracy provided by Tronics’ product portfolio that is required in their very demanding applications.”

Tronics was founded in 1997. The international MEMS manufacturer addresses growing markets, designing, manufacturing and selling custom and standard MEMS-based products to the industrial, aeronautics, security and medical markets. It holds 25 families of patents.

Tronics’ MEMS inertial products are a single chip, tailored for system manufacturers with high requirements for highly stable, high-performance inertial sensors.

Manufactured, packaged and calibrated in its own fab located in France, Tronics’ high performance inertial sensors bring significant value and differentiation for applications that are more demanding than automotive, while not requiring ‘tactical grade’ sensors.

Since January 2017, Epcos AG, a TDK Group company, holds 74 per cent of Tronics’ shares.

Digi-Key Electronics is headquartered in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA.
