The GLF Integrated Power design team has a proven track record of leading in power and analog design.

When the IoT, ultra-portable, and wearable revolution was beginning, they saw the need for a new generation of even more efficient power switch devices.

They developed new IP and enabled efficient and differentiated power management solutions that are both cost-effective and simple to design with.

 “As a trusted global supplier of electronic components and a key resource for design engineers and supply chain managers, the Digi-Key Marketplace is a great fit for GLF load switches, power deep sleep protection components, battery protection ICs and power multiplexers,” said Eileen Sun, CEO of GLF Integrated Power, Inc. “We are very excited to be a part of this distribution program.”

GLF launched their first IQSmart, ultra-efficient load switch device in 2016 at APEC in Los Angeles, and achieved design wins at major wearable, SSD and portable device manufacturers. Their portfolio has been rapidly expanding ever since, with a mission to make wearables, mobile devices, smart computing, and IoT products live longer, more efficient lives.
