THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - January 9, 2007

Digi-Key Corporation, one of the world's fastest growing distributors of electronic components, and Excelsys Technologies, Ltd. announced today the signing of a global distribution agreement.

Excelsys CEO Gary Duffy said, "Using the online configurator, engineers can design and order a custom, universal input, modulator and agency approved AC/DC supply in minutes with fast delivery.
