    Ideal Power Inc. announced an agreement with Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (RELL) for the global distribution of Ideal Power’s products including the discrete B-TRAN™ device and SymCool™ power module.

    “We are excited to announce Richardson Electronics as the first distributor for our products. They have strong technical sales capability, expertise in demand creation and securing sales for new technologies, robust customer support, and global reach. Our products are a perfect fit for Richardson Electronics’ existing customer base needing medium and high voltage power semiconductors,” said Dan Brdar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ideal Power.

    “We are very excited to work with Ideal Power to bring their products to market worldwide. For years, Richardson has developed an excellent portfolio of Technology Partners for power management components and engineered solutions,” said Greg Peloquin, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Power & Microwave Technologies and Green Energy Solutions groups.

    “Ideal Power’s products are an innovative and complementary addition to this portfolio, providing low loss and inherently bidirectional power semiconductors to customers globally for use in a wide variety of industrial applications.”

    Ideal Power recently commenced shipment of its SymCool™ power modules to fulfill customer orders. The SymCool™ power module delivers clear advantages for several applications, including solid-state switchgear and circuit protection, renewable energy inverters for solar and wind, industrial inverters, hybrid and electric vehicles (“EVs”), and EV charging.

    Ideal Power looks forward to industrial markets, particularly the solid-state circuit breaker market served by our SymCool™ power module, to be the earliest source of our sales ramp beginning in the second half of 2024, as expected.

    Ideal Power utilizes an asset-light business model leveraging the large investment already made in the silicon processing, distribution, demand creation and support infrastructure. This business model allows the Company to focus on the further development of its disruptive B-TRAN™ technology while minimizing capital requirements.
