Digi-Key Corporation Announces Global Distribution Agreement with Cicoil
Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation signed a global distribution agreement with Cicoil, an industry leader in the manufacture of flexible flat cable used in numerous commercial and military applications.
“Cicoil is very excited about becoming a supplier and partner with Digi-Key,” said Howard Lind, president and CEO of Cicoil. “Due to Digi-Key’s worldwide reach and exposure, Cicoil’s flexible cables will now be readily available to purchase online, for immediate shipment anywhere in the world. Everyone at Cicoil is very excited about the new partnership, and we look forward to a long, successful future with Digi-Key.”
Cicoil’s hyper-flexible cable/wire products can withstand harsh environmental factors such as extreme cold and extreme heat (-65°C to +260°C) and remain soft to the touch. Cicoil cables can also withstand medical or industrial chemicals and meet NASA or ESA outgassing requirements. This will give design engineers a new choice when needing a cable for harsh environments that will retain its flexibility. Cicoil cables can also be custom configured to include tubing, power, signal, and video in one jacketed cable.
“The commercial and military aerospace industries are an expanding market, and Cicoil is ideally placed to serve this area of growth,” said Tom Busher, vice president, global interconnect, passives, and electromechanical product at Digi-Key. “Cicoil’s rugged product provides a unique dimension to our line card and we are pleased to enter into this partnership.”
Cicoil has extensive engineering experience in specifying and designing cable assemblies. The company’s engineers have custom-designed thousands of custom cable assemblies, for a wide variety of environments and applications. Cicoil cables are also used in medical equipment, and in automated robotic process equipment, specifically where cables needed to survive tens of millions of flexing, repetitive cycles.
