Helix signs Digi-Key as worldwide distributor

Helix Semiconductors, a fabless power semiconductor company, has signed a global distribution agreement with Digi-Key.

Under the terms of the agreement Digi-Key will distribute the company's MxC 200 family of configurable, 15W DC-DC power ICs and evaluation boards worldwide.

The MxC 200 family consists of five monolithic, configurable, high-voltage switch capacitor ICs targeted for use in both non-isolated and isolated, buck or boost DC-DC converter applications.

The MxC 200 takes voltage input ranging from 12-48V and converts it to selectable lower voltages, enabling it to stay nearly flat from full load down to 5% load.

Target applications for the MxC 200 include a wide variety of products such as machine vision and security cameras, wireless access points, IoT gateways, and VoIP phones – as well as 24V to 48V intermediate bus converter applications and 48V input telecom and other Power-over-Ethernet applications.

The MxC 200 also targets products with 24V inputs, such as HVAC systems and industrial controllers.
