Commenting, David Pearson, Technical Director of Anglia said, “We have expanded our range of discrete semiconductors and it is now more extensive than ever before. We’ve created this guide to show the breadth of product now available and to help customers locate the right part for their design quickly and easily, and then take them straight to the website for comprehensive data and to order samples. This is the latest in a series of Guides published by Anglia to support customers designing with our products.”

Published in PDF and paper form, the Guide lists all the industry standard discrete and small signal semiconductors available from Anglia and the leading manufacturers it represents. It provides a quick and easy to use overview of the extensive range of industry standard part numbers from the wide variety of manufacturers available from Anglia. Products covered include small signal diodes, standard rectifier diodes, Zener diodes, Schottky diodes, fast recovery diodes, bridge rectifiers and transistors all available in a selection of industry standard packages to suit a wide range of designs.

Many of the devices included in the Guide are supported through Ezysample, a free online sampling service. Anglia has made many products including discrete semiconductors more accessible to design engineers working on prototypes with price breaks and smaller pack quantities to support customers in the design and prototype phases of a project.

The guide is designed to be used in conjunction with Anglia Live where customers can view all the options, brands, full data sheets, stock and pricing all in one place. Each page offers a Website Data Reference Code, which links direct to the relevant page on Anglia Live in the interactive PDF version of the Guide. Users of the print edition can simply enter this code into the search box on Anglia live.
