Acquisition Further Expands and Differentiates Micross’ High-Reliability Product Manufacturing Capabilities
Melville, NY – May 3, 2022 – Micross Components, Inc. (“Micross” or the “Company”), a leading provider of high-reliability microelectronic product and service solutions for aerospace, defense, space, medical and industrial applications and a portfolio company of Behrman Capital, today announced the acquisition of the High-Reliability Discrete Diodes and Assemblies business of Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms.
Headquartered in Reynosa, Mexico, the business provides semiconductor solutions, including Qualified Product List (“QPL”) and non-QPL diodes, rectifiers and transient voltage suppression products to aerospace, defense, medical and other high-reliability customers. The business manufactures products designed to operate across a wide range of temperatures, vibrations and other harsh environments.
Micross’ acquisition – the fifth under Behrman Capital’s ownership and first since consummating a continuation fund transaction in February of 2022 – addresses a number of strategic priorities for the Company.

The acquisition also expands Micross’ footprint with a manufacturing presence in Mexico, offering a new beachhead for future growth and expansion opportunities.
Simon Lonergan, Managing Partner of Behrman Capital, said, “This acquisition represents an extremely strong strategic fit for Micross, as the Company continues to build out its product portfolio to better serve its customer base. Adding Semtech’s high-reliability discrete products to Micross’ platform further differentiates the Company’s leading position as a one-stop source of supply for high-reliability electronic products and services. We look forward to continuing to work with management to identify additional opportunities to drive growth at Micross.”
