Comchip Technology Corporation, a leader in the design and manufacture of SMD diodes

MANSFIELD, Tx. - Mouser Electronics, Inc., known for its rapid introduction of the newest products, today announced it has signed a global distribution agreement with Comchip Technology Corporation, a leader in the design and manufacture of SMD diodes.

Mouser's Comchip stock includes advanced technology diodes - switching, Schottky, Zener, and ESD - that are RoHS and Halogen-free in flat chip packages with gold-plated terminations instead of tin-plated. Comchip is the only manufacturer that offers RoHS and gold termination. These discrete semiconductors are used for voltage/current regulation and rectification, signal conditioning, and circuit protection. The diodes provide long-term reliability through the use of gold terminations rather than tin, eliminating their susceptibility to tin whiskers.

Mike Scott, Mouser Vice President of Active Products, stated, "Mouser is excited to be offering Comchip's products in their differentiated "flat pack" SOD packages. These diodes are manufactured with clean, simple substrate technology, not lead-frame, to cut costs and improve reliability."

Tony Yang, General Manager of Comchip Technology Corporation, says, "Comchip Technology is pleased to partner with Mouser Electronics and bring the latest in packaging technology to the diode marketplace. Our 'flat pack' SOD-323, SOD-523, SOD-723 and SOD-923 packages allow state of the art assembly of high quality diode products in a RoHS or leaded solder environment. We are a leader in providing RoHS solutions without tin whisker issues."

Known for its broad-based product line, unsurpassed customer service, and streamlined warehouse operations, Mouser continuously offers customers the most innovative products and latest technologies for their new design projects.
