Rochester Electronics today announced it has expanded its relationship with Altera Corporation to include selective members of its mature FPGAs and CPLDs product families. As a result of this agreement, Rochester is now able to provide users of Altera products with a flexible, long-term supply pipeline of devices for applications with extended lifespans. Under the partnership, Rochester will market selective Altera products with the manufacturer’s full support.
Devices covered by the agreement include select MAX® 7000 CPLDs and FLEX®, APEX® and Stratix® GX FPGAs. These devices are widely used in military/aerospace, transportation, medical, industrial and communications applications, all of which are characterized by long installed product lifetimes and the need for extended availability of component parts. Users of these FPGAs and CPLDs will have continued access to a secure and reliable source of parts for maintenance and replacement purposes. With this deal, Rochester is also able to support demand of small quantities from customers.
Rochester customers will benefit from its extensive relationships with other semiconductor manufacturers and its ability to act as a single vendor of choice for a wide range of devices.
Explaining the background to the new project, Chris Gerrish, President, Rochester Electronics said: “We are pleased to expand our partnership with Altera to include selective members of its mature parts. By entering into this agreement, we are able to enrich our product catalog and further support our customers’ supply requirements.”
