PSi Technologies today announced the signing of a long-term supply agreement with Royal Philips Electronics to provide outsourced power semiconductor assembly and test services through PSi's facility in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
The products to be packaged and tested for Philips are bipolar power products ranging from epitaxial diodes, deflection transistors, damper diodes, triacs and thyristors. The end applications for these products are consumer electronic devices, white goods, lighting, power supplies and industrials for the international and China markets.
As part of the agreement, Philips will progressively transfer its production of bipolar products, currently located in Philips' assembly and test facility in Cabuyao, Laguna Province, Philippines, to PSi in China. The transfer will commence in the first quarter of 2004 and extend to 2005. PSi currently provides assembly and test services to Philips in the Philippines, augmenting Philips' internal capacity to meet market demand for its products and packages.
