Established in 1981, Rochester Electronics, LLC is a leading manufacturer and vendor of semiconductors. Headquartered in Newburyport, Massachusetts, the firm maintains offices in Britain, China, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and the United States.
Rochester has partnerships with more than 70 original component manufacturers, such as Texas Instruments, Analog Devices, Ampleon, and Infineon Technologies. Those relationships enable it to supply a wide range of standard, near, and end-of-life (EOL) semiconductors.
The company’s offerings are fabricated using data provided by their originating supplier. It has the capacity to make industrial, commercial, military specification, and space level integrated circuits (ICs). And since it has more than 12 billion die in stock, it can produce more than 70,000 device types.
Rochester works to ensure its equipment and facilities are up to the task of meeting all of its clients’ needs. To that end, it utilizes state-of-the-art die banking and wafer processing tools to fabricate components of the highest quality. The firm also maintains hermetic and plastic assembly, open cavity packaging, component lead finishing, and substrate replication capability to provide the quickest turnaround times possible.
In addition, the company offers its customers a range of testing services, including tier 2 automotive, component programming, up-screening, temperature profiling, and device burn-in.
Rochester recently added Ampleon’s CLF1G0035-100 and CLF1G0035S-100 100W broadband power amplifiers to its featured portfolio. As these products are gallium nitride high-electron-mobility-transistors (GAN HEMT), they offer a robust frequency range of DC to 3.5GHz. The lines also have an outstanding operational voltage tolerance of 50V and boast a voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) of 10:1.
Because of those characteristics, CLF1G0035-100 and CLF1G0035S are ideal for use in commercial wireless infrastructure, radar, public mobile radio, and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing projects. Both series also have defense, industrial, scientific, and medical industry applications.
Rochester prides itself on having the licenses and production resources necessary to meet its customers' continuing source component requirements.
