STMicroelectronics has signed a deal with Rochester electronics to support the long term supply of its devices.
The Rochester has a substantial bank of die that are end of life, and has the masks from semiconductor makers to make more. The deal will see active and end of life support for ST’s microprocessors as well as analog, mixed signal and discrete devices.
This is particularly important for extended product lifecycle management and safety inventory during times of constrained supply, says Rochester.
The company is a licensed semiconductor manufacturer that has made over 20,000 different types of older components. It has over 12 billion die in stock with the capability to manufacture over 70,000 device types. Manufacturing services including design, wafer processing, assembly, test, reliability, and IP archiving.
