Richardson RFPD Press Release - December 14, 2011
Richardson RFPD and RECOM Power Team-Up for Global Distribution
- Agreement includes DC/DC and AC/DC converter modules for energy and power markets.
December 14, 2011 – LaFox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today it has entered into a global
distribution agreement with RECOM Power, Inc., a leading provider of DC/DC and AC/DC converter modules, switching
regulators, and constant current LED drivers. A high-quality manufacturer for more than 35 years, RECOM’s DC/DC
converter modules are used by power electronics design engineers around the world.
“With this agreement, we
continue to expand our global reach with a distributor that is committed to the OEM design-in process in all
energy and power markets,” said Christoph Wolf, RECOM Power Senior Executive Vice-President. “The field sales
engineers at Richardson RFPD are considered to be among the best in the industry, with a key focus on high power
electronics applications. Richardson RFPD has a reputation for in-depth application knowledge, full design
support, and a bias toward action on behalf of their customers.”
Over the past two decades, it has become
common practice for OEMs to purchase DC/DC converters as a finished module, instead of designing each converter
circuit themselves. This trend also applies to all segments of the electronics industry, including industrial
automation, transportation engineering, telecommunications, data technology, measurement technology, and medical
Kevin Connor, Richardson RFPD vice president of the Energy, Power & Interconnect responded:
“Recently, our customers started requesting additional help with DC/DC converters, LED driver modules, and other
key building block solutions for high-power inverter applications. We sought a key addition to our already
substantial product offering in order to best meet these needs.” Connor further added, “RECOM’s dedication to
design excellence, product availability and quality manufacturing fills an important gap, improving time-to-market
and increasing system performance and reliability for our OEM customers.”
Richardson RFPD’s worldwide field
sales engineering teams are now assisting circuit designers in integrating RECOM converter modules into inverter
designs. For technical information or to buy RECOM products, please
