Surface mount devices

Chip Central Semiconductor is committed to manufacturing the finest quality and most innovative surface mount discrete devices. Central's broad range of SMD product families is constantly expanding, reflecting the ever-changing requirements of the electronics industry.

Central's surface mount devices are packaged in the leading miniature, ultra miniature, and low profile surface mount packages designed to suit design engineers' needs.

Through-hole devices

Chip Central Semiconductor continues to manufacture a wide array of through-hole discrete semiconductors in industry standard metal, plastic, and glass packages.

Diminishing source devices discontinued by other manufacturers remain in Central's program as long as there is customer demand. Central's commitment to supporting Diminishing Source products helps to ensure product viability by extending end product life cycles and eliminating costly redesigns.

Bare die devices

Chip Central Semiconductor has been in the business of manufacturing through-hole discrete semiconductors since 1974; surface mounted devices were added to the product portfolio in 1987. In 1996, Central entered the hybrid market to fill the void left by the departure of several other manufacturers.

Central's bare die devices are available in a variety of packing options including waffle pack, full unsawn wafer, sawn wafer on metal frame, and sawn wafer on plastic ring. In addition to standard processes, other devices may also be available in bare die form.

Supporting the community
Winter/Spring 2014

Central is a supporter of the Girls Scouts 2014 Operation Cookie at the “Airborne Thunder” level. 


Operation Cookie is a Gift of Caring project that allows buyers to purchase cookies to share with service personnel, local veterans' facilities, and other organizations.

Central is a proud sponsor of the Kosciuszko Foundation’s Annual Dinner and Ball, held in NYC.  Founded in 1925, the Kosciuszko Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that promotes closer ties between Poland and the United States through educational, scientific and cultural exchanges. It awards up to $1 million annually in fellowships and grants to graduate students, scholars, scientists, professionals, and artists, and promotes Polish culture in America.

Supporting America’s troops was the first mission of the USO. Over time, the USO has evolved, developing new programs and services to meet the ever-changing needs of the troops and their families, while holding fast to the original mission.  Central continues to support the USO in their Mission:

The USO lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families.” 

Central is also a financial supporter to many other local organizations and charities, including the local volunteer ambulance and St. Jude’s Children’s research, either directly or through its matching gift benefit program.
