Fairchild Semiconductor expands strategic partnership with Sichuan Changhong Electric Co

Fairchild Semiconductor has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd., manufacturers of consumer electronics devices in China. Changhong has committed to fulfilling purchasing target plans for Fairchild's power and mobile components through December 2015. Fairchild's range of Changhong products include: LED TVs, PDP TVs, LCD TVs, CRT TVs, set-top boxes, refrigerators and air conditioners.

The release states that the relationship between Fairchild and Changhong started in 2004 with the establishment of a joint product development laboratory. Fairchild's high voltage MOSFETs, Fairchild Power Switches (Green FPS), IGBTs, interface switches, diodes, logic devices and rectifiers are some of the products designed into Changhong's consumer devices.

"Since Changhong was established in 1958, we have grown to become a worldwide industry leader and the largest supplier of consumer electronics in Asia," said Liu Tibin, vice president and general manager of Changhong group. "We partnered with Fairchild in order to develop and differentiate our consumer electronic products and to solve difficult technical challenges. We look forward to building on this successful partnership in the future. The high quality and value of Fairchild's energy-efficient semiconductor solutions and the high level of customer service they provide were key factors in our decision to select them as a strategic supplier."

With its world-class manufacturing facilities, comprehensive product portfolio and leading-edge R&D capabilities, Changhong has deservedly built an excellent reputation, both domestically and globally, for providing high quality electronic products and services," said Benjamin Tan, Fairchild's regional vice president of Sales and Marketing, China and South East Asia.

"Fairchild has been a strong supporter of China's domestic electronics industry since we entered the market in 1997," Tan concluded. "We are delighted to be partnering with Changhong, particularly as this enables us to play a further part in boosting Sichuan's economic and social development."
