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."
