4/29/2003 - XEMICS has appointed Future Electronics as pan-European distributor for their complete range of ultra low power semiconductors for wireless, sensing, GPS and BluetoothTM systems. This agreement extends the successful co-operation between the two companies started in 2001 in North America. Future's broad market coverage coupled with a high level of local technical support will provide XEMICS customers with a high quality local service.
