If your favorite semiconductor products will be discontinued by the original manufacturer, you may be able to find supply at Rochester Electronics, a comprehensive and authorized source for these discontinued products. As part of its Extension-of-Life™ process, the company acquires the original manufacturer’s remaining inventory, including packaged devices, finished devices, die, intellectual property, tooling, test programs and test equipment, to provide continuous supply and extend the life of many semiconductor series.
This service will help you forecast last-time buy requirements, absorb the additional inventory and storage costs associated with last-time buys, or find an available drop-in replacement.
“Every product and technology has a life cycle, but the end-of-life schedule for the semiconductor manufacturer usually does not support the needs of all customers. With our Extension-of-Life process, end-of-life does not have to mean start-of-panic,” said George Karalias, Rochester Electronics. “More than 50 semiconductor manufacturers worldwide have authorized us to manufacture and supply many of the products they have discontinued. Partnering with Rochester further up the product life cycle curve means the semiconductor product never truly reaches end-of-life and can ease a customer’s end-of-life planning. Along with a strategic last time buy from the original manufacturer, plans can be made to have Rochester be the continuing source for their critical devices.”
