Newburyport, Mass. – Rochester Electronics has re-introduced the AMD 7968 transmitter devices, part of the semiconductor maker's 7968/7969 transmitter/receiver TAXIchip set, under its Extension-of-Life Solutions program to support customers that require authorized, long-term supply.
Rochester Electronics was transferred the remaining inventory of AMD's 7968 devices after the end-of-life (EOL) announcement. Now that the original stock has been depleted, the company is continuing to manufacture the product family in several package styles including the 28-pin ceramic dip, 28-pin plastic dip, 28-pin LCCs, and 28-pin PLCC.
At this time, the maximum serial encoded transmission rate available includes 125 MHz and 175 MHz, in commercial operating temperatures, said Rochester. Military temperature ranges are currently being added. The AM7968 transmitter consists of an input latch, an encoder, a parallel-to-serial shift register, a multiplying phase locked loop (PLL), and some control logic, which makes it a good fit for communication-based applications, said the company.
Rochester recently expanded its state-of-the-art, climate-controlled warehouse storage facilities in Newburyport from 170,000-sq. ft. to nearly 250,000-sq. ft., which includes more than 7,800 cubic feet for bonded, secure inventory.
"Rochester Electronics understands that proper storage is critical if components are to retain peak functionality while in inventory. Our warehouse facilities are equipped with the most up-to-date, redundant systems for ESD protection, as well as careful climate, humidity and temperature control," said George Karalias, director of marketing & communications at Rochester Electronics, in a statement.
"Customers can be confident that their inventory is stored under the most optimum conditions available in the industry today," he further stated. "Rochester provides 100% guarantee traceability and performance for every part it sells. To maintain quality, Rochester maintains the highest standards when it comes to storing our inventory."
