Anadigics chooses Rochester as distributor for ‘end-of-life’ products

Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA, which manufactures GaAs-based wireless and broadband communications components and modules, has selected Rochester Electronics of Newburyport, MA, USA as its authorized distributor of discontinued products. Rochester Electronics already works with 30 semiconductor manufacturers to provide an aftermarket source for such ‘end-of-life’ products.

Rochester will continue to fill orders from Anadigics customers when products reach end-of-life status and beyond. All Anadigics products distributed by Rochester Electronics are 100% factory direct.

“Long program life cycles tend to have two schedules, one for the manufacturer and another for the customer,” says Jennifer Palella, Anadigics’ senior director of worldwide distribution. “Partnering with Rochester will enhance our end-of-life strategy, allowing Anadigics to better serve its customers,” she adds.

“Anadigics brings us the ability to provide a more complete package of discontinued semiconductors. Customers can now fill most requirements with one call,” says Rochester’s founder and CEO, Curt Gerrish.
