Plessey Semiconductors expands distribution network in Asia
19 March 2013
Plymouth based Plessey Semiconductors and Supreme Components Inc (SCI), an electronics distributor, have signed a distribution agreement for the Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam markets.
The cooperation will market Plessey's award-winning EPIC sensors (electronic potential integrated circuit) in synergy with Supreme Components system solutions for applications in the fields of ehealth, automotive, sports, fitness and smart lighting.
EPIC technology enables the sensor to capture minimal changes of the electric field using a high-precision, non-contact voltmeter within the millivolt region to detect bio-electrical signals (ECG, EMG, EOG, EEG) and changes in electric fields. Plessey is already pioneering the use of EPIC technology, which is used in its recently launched, heart beat monitors, imPulse and inCite.
"We are glad to be associated with a legend in the semiconductor industry, which is well known in the market place for its innovative products in emerging technologies," said Vick Aggarwala, President of Supreme Components, Inc. "SCI, being a leading market creator in the Asian region, is very excited about this great opportunity."
David Owen, Plessey's Global Sales Director, added, "We believe the SE Asia market will be an important one for the design of advanced healthcare applications that are ideally suited for the Plessey EPIC technology and we are very pleased to be working with Supreme Components who have a unique position in this region."
