Avnet to Distribute Micross Products

PHOENIX — Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas, a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), has signed a distribution agreement with high-reliability, memory producer Micross Components (formerly Austin Semiconductor). The agreement will enable both companies to bring Micross Components’ entire line of QML-certified (qualified manufacturers list) and ISO 9001/AS9100 registered semiconductor products to the military, aerospace, transportation, industrial, embedded and medical markets. The agreement encompasses all of North America.

Micross Components offers one of the broadest lines of high-reliability memory products in the industry, offering both standard and specialty memory products, including SRAM, SDRAM, DDR and EEPROM. Micross Components’ current product offering also includes I/C components, multi-chip modules and integrated product solutions. Along with their expansive line of high-reliability integrated plastic encapsulated microcircuits (iPEM), Micross also offers commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) up-screened products, as well as Solid State Disk on Chip (SSDoC) solutions.

“The addition of Micross Components allows Avnet customers unprecedented access to a significant array of memory products that are Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) registered, SMD (Standard Military Drawing) compliant and QML-certified,” said David Moore, director of defense/aerospace business development for Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “Not only will our customers be better served by their products, but Micross’ custom packaging will augment our existing semiconductor aftermarket capabilities and allow us to provide our customers long-term production for a wider range of end-of-life or obsolete components.”

“Micross Components is excited to bring our 22 years of experience in the military and aerospace marketplace to Avnet’s line card,” said Larry Wallace, general manager of Micross Components’ semiconductor operations. “We look forward to providing our competitive offerings and personalized service to the multitude of customers who depend on Avnet’s best in class distribution.”
