Mouser & Cymbet Sign Global Distribution Agreement

May 31, 2009 by Jeff Shepard

Mouser Electronics, Inc. announced that it has signed a global distribution agreement with Cymbet Corp., a thin film technology and energy harvesting power management solution provider.

Stock includes the self-contained Cymbet EnerChip™ EH CBC5300 energy harvesting module in a 24-pin configuration. Designed to enable quick development of solar energy harvesting applications, it accepts a wide range of energy transducer inputs, stores the harvested power, and delivers managed power to the target system.

Also in stock at Mouser is the CBC-EVAL-08 EnerChip EH Solar Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit which is used to create Zero-power designs for sensors, controllers, embedded systems, medical applications, environmental control systems and any "un-tethered" system to provide storage and starting power for the Cymbet Energy Harvesting Module. In addition, Mouser is stocking the EnerChip CC EVAL-05 Evaluation Kit that demonstrates the capabilities of both the EnerChip thin-film rechargeable batteries and the EnerChip CC with Integrated Battery management capabilities.

The EnerChip EH Solar Energy Harvesting EVAL-08 Evaluation Kit incorporates the Enerchip EH CBC5300 Energy Harvesting module. This is said to be the world’s first turnkey solar energy harvesting evaluation kit that enables electronics designers to quickly create "green" power solutions to be used in applications such as handheld electronics, medical devices, data loggers, and autonomous wireless sensors.

Mike Scott, Mouser Vice President of Active Products, said, "We are so pleased to add Cymbet to our linecard. Known as a green technology company, they are a leader in thin-film, solid-state storage devices and energy harvesting technology. Today, designers can find Cymbet’s evaluation tools in stock at Mouser, and soon we will have the thin-film battery products available for immediate shipment."

"We are thrilled that our customers can now purchase Cymbet EnerChip products from Mouser," said Blair Wilson, Cymbet Vice President of Sales. "Mouser is focused on the rapid introduction of new products and technologies and I know our customers will be well served."
