Arrow to supply Peregrine Discontinued products
Discontinued products from RF SOI (silicon on insulator) company Peregrine Semiconductor will be available through the Arrow Electronics' Supply Assurance program. This will enable customers to order obsolete Peregrine products beyond the product's end-of-life process and last-time-buy event, according to the company.
"From the customer to the manufacturer, Arrow's Supply Assurance program has proven to be a win-win solution," says Tyler Moore, director of supply assurance at Arrow. "Arrow can support the customers' ongoing demand for parts after the component manufacturer has discontinued production. Peregrine's customers can now turn to Arrow to receive the obsolete Peregrine products they know and trust."
"Peregrine is pleased to extend its collaboration with Arrow," says Colin Hunt, vice president of worldwide sales at Peregrine Semiconductor. "By working with Arrow's supply assurance team, we are complementing the work currently undertaken with Richardson RFPD, an Arrow company and RF design-in specialist distributor. The new collaboration will extend the availability of our devices to our mutual customers beyond the end-of-life date."
Arrow procures inventory through its Supply Assurance program to extend factory-direct support. The program supports customers' ongoing demand for five to 10 years after manufacturing has been discontinued. Parts purchased from Arrow are shipped with full certificates of compliance, which removes the risk of counterfeit parts entering supply chains.
