Rochester Electronics Receives Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems

Raytheon IDS recognizes Rochester Electronics for providing high-quality products and excellent customer service.

Newburyport, MA, August 03, 2011 --( Rochester Electronics, the world’s largest authorized manufacturer and distributor of end-of-life and mature semiconductors, recently received, for the second consecutive year, the Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. Rochester received the award at a recognition ceremony held at the Wyndham Hotel in Andover, Mass on April 13, 2011. Raytheon recognizes its suppliers based on three important factors: on-time delivery measures, sustained performance on quality, and commitment to continuous process and quality improvement.

“To be recognized as a high-quality semiconductor supplier with exceptional customer service by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems is an honor for Rochester Electronics,” said George Karalias, director of marketing and communications at Rochester Electronics. “Receiving the Supplier Excellence Award is further evidence of customer satisfaction resulting from dedication to delivering authorized, high-performance end-of-life and mature semiconductor products in a timely manner.”

Rochester’s combination of semiconductor re-creation and continuing manufacturing is a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to system re-design when critical semiconductors are no longer available from the original manufacturer. Rochester’s advanced re-creation process provides customers with a replicated device that matches the original semiconductor’s physical features, layer-by-layer and pin-for-pin, and is guaranteed to perform exactly as the original.

As an approved member of the Class V Qualified Manufacturer List (QML) by the Defense Supply Center of Columbus (DSCC), Rochester manufactures devices that meet MIL-PRF-38535 space-level certification requirements. This certification verifies Rochester Electronics’ capabilities in manufacturing processes, materials, and highly defined test flow to ensure the production of reliable parts that are electrically stable and can withstand harsh environmental stresses.

Rochester Electronics is also certified to IS0 9001:2008, AS9120, EN 9120:2002, JISQ 9120 standards; and is QSLD-certified to supply Federal Supply Class (FSC) 5962 microcircuits and electronic devices. In 2007, Rochester received the Chinese Reliable Electronic Component Supplier’s Classification (RECS) by China’s Ministry of Industry, a program jointly administered by the China Electronic Purchasing Association (CEPA) and the China Quality Association for the Electronics Industry (CQAE).
