The initial engagement started in 1968 when Avnet added Signetics as one of its first franchises. Signetics was subsequently bought by Philips and became NXP in 2006. More recently, the standard products division of NXP emerged as a separate company, Nexperia.
“Throughout the years, the Nexperia product range of discretes, logic and MOSFET devices has led the way with their performance, size and quality innovations," Avnet CEO Bill Amelio added. "Avnet is delighted to be able to offer Nexperia’s full product portfolio to our broad customer base, and we look forward to the next half century of serving the industry together.”
