Effective immediately, Central Semiconductor’s entire line of discrete semiconductors will be available for purchase by customers in the Americas through Avnet’s broadline components Electronics Marketing group and Avnet USI, Avnet’s defense/aerospace specialty distribution business unit.

Central Semiconductor provides innovative discrete semiconductor solutions for the latest high-tech products, from Internet of Things applications and portable medical devices to smartphones, tablets and Bluetooth accessories. Central also specializes in the manufacture of legacy devices for defense/aerospace customers.

“This agreement with Central Semiconductor enhances Avnet’s ability to provide customers with a broad selection of standard and custom discrete semiconductor solutions to support development of high speed/high data rate applications that are energy-efficient and low-profile,” said Bryan Brady, vice president, defense/aerospace, Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “And, with more than 2,200 drop-in replacement devices to meet customers' demands for diminishing source and end of life (EOL) products, Central’s commitment to ‘trailing edge’ technology is a tremendous value to our customers, particularly in hi-rel sectors like military/aerospace.”
