Cree Inc. and Digi-Key Corp. have signed an agreement for the distribution of Cree's high-performance LEDs. Digi-Key has been distributing Cree's energy-saving power components since 2007.

The global agreement covers the Cree LED portfolio, including the award-winning lighting-class XLamp LEDs and the broad high-brightness portfolio, which includes round, oval, SMD and P4 LEDs. Cree LEDs are available through Digi-Key's Website and will be added to future print catalogs.

"The addition of Digi-Key widens Cree's ability to reach growth markets for our LEDs," said Mark Despotes, Cree VP of global channels. "Digi-Key has the expertise and the commitment to help accelerate the adoption of LEDs, including the fast-growing lighting-class and high-brightness markets."

"By expanding our extensive catalog of products to now include Cree LEDs, we are able to offer customers access to this industry-leading technology," said Mark Larson, Digi-Key president and COO. "We're seeing increasing market demand for high-quality LEDs, and the Cree LED products are a key addition to our portfolio."
