June 17, 2022 – KISTA, Sweden and GENEVA, Ill, US: Sivers Semiconductors AB and Richardson RFPD today announced that Sivers Wireless, the fully owned subsidiary of Sivers Semiconductors, has signed a global distribution agreement with Richardson RFPD to strengthen the growth of the 5G and SATCOM millimeter wave business on the global arena.
Richardson RFPD, an Arrow Electronics Company, is a specialized electronic component distributor providing design engineers with deep technical expertise and localized global design support for the latest new products from the world’s leading suppliers of RF, wireless, IoT and power technologies.
The distribution agreement will be a cornerstone of the overall go-to-market strategy of Sivers Wireless. It will create a substantially larger global footprint of personnel that can create, manage and drive demand for Sivers’ technology. This agreement continues the relationship between Richardson RFPD and MixComm, a company that was acquired by Sivers Semiconductors earlier in 2022.
“Richardson RFPD’s strength is the combination of its local presence in all major markets, deep technical engineering competence, and dedication to supporting end customer success. We believe will be a successful relationship and a key enabler for continued growth,” said Anders Storm, group CEO of Sivers Semiconductors.
“This is a natural progression of our prior successful relationship with MixComm. Sivers’ product capabilities and reputation in 5G and SATCOM markets, combined with our worldwide customer-facing sales engineers, will benefit our joint customers,” said Rafael R. Salmi, Ph.D., Richardson RFPD’s president.
There are no financial forecasts or commitments stated as part of this agreement.
