November 10, 2010 -- RS Components has further strengthened its relationship with Vishay following the completion of a European distribution agreement. The new agreement means that RS now formally represents Vishay, one of the largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors, around the globe through three regional agreements.
RS holds a stock profile of over 11,000 products for next-day delivery. The range features a vast selection of passive components, including tantalum, aluminium and film capacitors, variable, power and thin-film resistors and magnetics, alongside a growing semiconductor portfolio. Vishay products are being supported by RS through a Brand microsite in the Electronics Centre on rswww.com/vishay, which brings together product, market and application guides as well as data for the full range of Vishay components.
Philippe Masson, Director Sales Distribution Europe from Vishay continued, "RS provides design engineers with a proven online technical resource and has a reputation for outstanding customer support making it an ideal partner for Vishay's portfolio of discrete semiconductors and passive components."
