THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability and delivery, and American Technical Ceramics (ATC), today announced the two companies have signed a global distribution agreement.
“ATC is very excited to have our leading edge RF components available to the customer base served by Digi-Key,” said Steve Rabe, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ATC. “Our products will now be available to provide solutions to the fast growing RF market.”
For over 40 years, ATC has designed, developed, manufactured and marketed Multilayer Capacitors, Single Layer Capacitors, Resistive Products, Inductors and Custom Thin Film Products for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave applications.

The global distribution agreement with Digi-Key includes products from ATC’s 800, 550, and 600 series capacitor lines.
