With effect from August 01, 2015, Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH is also a franchise distributor for the product portfolio of International Rectifier (IR).

Following the acquisition by Infineon of International Rectifier (IR), Infineon and Rutronik have expanded their partnership to include the additional IR product portfolio. The franchise covers the EMEA region and includes the complete IR product range, with the exception of the HiRel products. "We are delighted with the expansion of our distribution network. This will further enhance our ability to support our customers with their system requirements in the future," explains Susanne Horn, Vice President Distribution & EMS Management EMEA at Infineon Technologies AG.

In particular, the IGBTs, motor control and gate drivers, as well as the LV PMOS transistors represent an ideal addition to Rutronik's existing power product range. These products will primarily cover Rutronik's target markets in the automotive, industrial, home appliance, motor control, and lighting industries. "As one of the leading distributors of power components, we are delighted that we can now offer our customers an even wider portfolio. As a result, they can source all the products they need for their power management solutions from a single source at Rutronik," says Thomas Rudel, CEO of Rutronik.
