Diodes Completes Licensing Agreement with Microsemi

December 19, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Diodes Inc. (Westlake Village, CA), a manufacturer and supplier of discrete semiconductors, announced that it has signed an agreement with Microsemi Corp. allowing Microsemi to license Diodes' newly released, patent-pending PowerDI™5 package.

"We are very excited about this reciprocal licensing agreement with Microsemi," said Diodes President and CEO C.H. Chen. "Our collaboration in the past has been mutually beneficial as the unique strength of Microsemi's proprietary technology in our products has allowed us to build on our existing range of industry-leading diode, rectifier and protection devices, while Microsemi has gained broadened industry acceptance of its advanced proprietary technology through having Diodes Inc. as a second source. We are therefore looking forward to continuing this productive collaboration for our new proprietary Power DI™5 Series."
