Rochester Electronics and SkyHigh Memory have entered into an agreement to provide continued support for mature NAND chips.
SkyHigh Memory specializes in NAND storage solutions in SLC and eMMC, while Rochester provides 100% authorized legacy and end-of-life (EOL) semiconductor technologies.
EOL microprocessors in existing designs may continue to require storage solutions with low-density capabilities, which complements SkyHigh Memory’s SLC NAND products ranging from 1Gb to 8Gb and 4GB eMMC. These mature densities can be supported by Rochester’s core microprocessor components’ lifecycles. Rochester Electronics stocks an extensive portfolio of processors, including continued production of numerous legacy and EOL processors through licensing, die banks, and die product replications.

Founded in 2019 as a NAND chip joint venture between Cypress Semiconductor (now part of Infineon Technologies) and sk Hynix, SkyHigh Memory supplies high reliability NAND memory storage for automotive, industrial, home automation and appliances, consumer electronics and medical products and so needs to ensure long term supply.
“Our partnership with SkyHigh Memory bolsters Rochester Electronics’ customer base and offerings with a continuity of supply in low-density mature NAND storage solutions. Memory longevity is achieved alongside legacy microprocessor technology.” – Paul Mason, Global Director Memory Technology Rochester Electronics.
“Rochester Electronics’ strengths in managing and supporting legacy and EOL devices, particularly in the realm of microprocessors align with SkyHigh Memory’s mature SLC NAND and eMMC storage solutions. By partnering together, we can offer our customers seamless continuity for their NAND storage needs,” said Alexander Stempfle, Director, Supplier Development EMEA at Rochester Electronics.
“We are looking forward to a strong partnership with Rochester Electronics in order to increase the service provided to our customers globally,” said Yildirim Vural, Sales Director for Central & Eastern Europe at SkyHIgh.
Rochester stocks over 15 billion devices in stock encompassing more than 200,000-part numbers for EOL devices and has also manufactured over 20,000 device types under license, with the capability to manufacture over 70,000 device types. Rochester oﬀers manufacturing services including design, wafer processing, assembly, test, reliability, and IP archiving to provide long term supply of mature and legacy technologies.
