When searching for a mature or end of life semiconductor, turn to Rochester Electronics. Headquartered in Newburyport, MA Rochester has distribution offices around the world. There are locations in the UK, Germany, China, and Japan. They work with customers worldwide to extend the life of products that are End-of-Life guaranteeing a supply of long-life cycle semiconductor solutions. Rochester is the only dedicated manufacturer that supports the ongoing need of critical semiconductors for their entire life-cycle.

Rochester products are manufacture to the exact specifications of the original and guaranteed to be identical to the original in every way. All manufacturing is done with the full support and authorization of the original equipment manufacturer. Once a semiconductor has been added to the Rochester family they never reach the end of their life. Rochester has four comprehensive levels of capabilities to guarantee that there is always a solution for end-of-life products. First, Rochester purchases the die and wafer from the OEM and continues production. If the supply of wafer and die is exhausted new wafer and die are manufactured using the existing tooling supplied by the original manufacturer. If the tooling is no longer available then Rochester can re-create the tooling from existing intellectual property provide by the OEM. When the previous options are unavailable Rochester can re-create parts from the last working sample. Rochester has the capability of producing over 300,000 different part numbers. Over 60 of the world’s leading manufacturers of semiconductors turn to Rochester to extend the life of devices no longer in production. Product lines supported by Rochester include semiconductors from Agilent, Altera, Amd, Burr-Brown, Conexant, Freescale, Harris, Honeywell, IBM, Micron, Motorla, NXP, Renesas, Texas Instruments, and many, many more. From AMD Rochester features microcontrollers from the AMD E86 family. The Am186ED/EDLV based on the x86 architecture are the ideal upgrade for 80C186/188 designs requiring increased performance and more than 64K of memory. Rochester also features several products from the Altera Classic device family. Fabricated on advanced CMOS technology the EP1810GC-35 and EP610DC-25 offer high-speed, low-power logic integration and can be erased with ultra-violet light, allowing for fast changes to the design.
