CISSOID signs franchise agreement with distributor SETRON


Strengthening Central- and Northern-Europe network

High-temperature semiconductor manufacturer CISSOID and German-based distributor SETRON have signed an extensive franchise agreement for the distribution of CISSOID products. With sales locations in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Poland and Ukraine (covering Russia), as well as Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, SETRON strengthens CISSOID's sales network in Central and Northern Europe. The portfolio includes power supply components and subsystems including DC-DC converters, voltage regulators, power drivers, isolated-gate drivers, electric-motor drivers, general-purpose ICs, discrete components, voltage references, clock generators & timers, ADCs, amplifiers, power switches, MOSFET transistors, and diodes. As an analog components specialist with strong design support, SETRON is expanding its portfolio with CISSOID focussing on ultimate reliability and extreme environment capabilities. "With CISSOID we are partnering with a manufacturer showing very strong ambitions, bringing over 25 years of successful R&D to our customers who have growing needs for high-temperature and high-reliability semiconductors. We are now in a position to handle the most demanding projects in terms of extreme environmental conditions, extended reliability, and lifetime" said Bernd Riemann, SETRON's director Application & Technical Marketing. "As the market leader for high temperature semiconductors, we have consciously opted for SETRON, as they are committed to a high level of customer support combined with a strong emphasis on design-in activity. It is imperative that in the high-temperature-semiconductor market where product performance and reliability is key, we work with the right partner who understands the relevant application areas for the Cissoid technology" says Andrew Barber, EMEA Sales director for CISSOID. CISSOID offers both standard and custom products for power management, power conversion, and signal conditioning in extreme temperature and harsh environments. CISSOID products are also used in lower temperature ranges enabling extended lifetime by one to two decades compared to standard semiconductors . With a guaranteed operating temperature range from -55°C to +225°C, CISSOID integrated circuits enable energy, weight, and cost savings in lighter, cooling-free, and more compact electronic systems in standard or extreme environments. They are used in mission-critical systems as well as in applications requiring long term reliability. CISSOID supplies leaders in the oil and gas, aeronautics, industrial and automotive markets.
