Rochester Electronics Selected as Authorized Source for NXP Semiconductor Mature & Discontinued Products

Newburyport, MA – March 3rd, 2014 – Rochester Electronics today announced that it has entered into a continuing solution agreement with NXP Semiconductors, a global leader in High Performance Mixed Signal electronics. This new agreement will provide customers a continuing supply of end-of-life products discontinued by NXP Semiconductors.

As products reach the end of their normal life cycle, there are many industries that still require extended support for mission-critical products and programs for up to 10 to 20 years, or even longer. With the average life cycle of a semiconductor being less than five years, customers could face massive re-design and re-qualification costs.

“We are pleased to appoint Rochester Electronics as our authorized global supplier for discontinued and mature products,” said Pierre LaBoisse, Senior Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, NXP Semiconductors. “Rochester is clearly the leading solution for end-of-life semiconductor support. Their long standing experience, capabilities and services provides our customers the most comprehensive support available.”

“This new agreement with NXP broadens our extensive product solution capabilities to a new level,” said Chris Gerrish, President, Rochester Electronics. “Being able to support NXP customers with critical ongoing requirements is a very significant addition to our product offering.”
