Melville, NY (May 4, 2022) – Micross Components, Inc. (“Micross”), a leading global provider of mission-critical microelectronic components and services for high-reliability aerospace, defense, space, medical, energy, industrial, and other applications announced the expansion of its Hi-Rel Components business with the acquisition of the High-Reliability Discrete Diodes and Assemblies business of Semtech Corporation (NASDAQ: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors.

High-Reliability Discrete Diodes and Assemblies related to this acquired business have served Military & Space applications for more than 60 years. Product types include Qualified Products List (QPL) and non-QPL rectifiers, transient voltage suppression (TVS) and Zener diodes in axial and surface-mount packages, as well as assemblies in catalog and custom configurations, and a new range of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) diodes and power management devices, all engineered for the harshest environments. Solutions range from single- to multi-phase devices in high-current/high-voltage configurations. The designs are rugged and the packages are hermetic and varied in their overall function and construction. Current applications include power supplies, base stations, motor drives, medical equipment, and have the potential to expand much further.

Micross is a portfolio company of Behrman Capital. Simon P. Lonergan, Managing Partner of Behrman Capital, said, “This acquisition represents an extremely strong strategic fit for Micross, as the Company continues to build out its product portfolio to better serve its customer base. Adding Semtech’s high-reliability discrete products to Micross’ platform further differentiates the Company’s leading position as a one-stop source of supply for one of the broadest portfolios of high-reliability electronic services and products. We look forward to continuing to work with management to identify additional opportunities to drive growth at Micross.”

Vince Buffa, Chairman and CEO of Micross, said, “We are delighted to partner with the High-Reliability Discrete Diodes and Assemblies (HRDDA) team through this acquisition, which further expands Micross’ capabilities.
