CEL has sales offices in key locations around the world, plus a network of domestic and international distribution partners. They also stock inventory at locations close to their customers. With so many of them manufacturing offshore, CEL has found this to be the most efficient way to get product into their customers' hands, when and where they need it. You’ll find CEL's sales force and customer service staff highly trained, with the tools and infrastructure necessary to deliver innovative, competitive solutions.

The products that CEL offers include:

I. Optocouplers & SSRs

Offer a broad range of optocouplers and solid state relays with industry-leading performance and reliability. These series of products provide isolation and switching functions for various applications including power supply, motor control, data communications interface circuit, automated test equipment and telecommunication equipment.

Engineers tasked with miniaturizing their designs will appreciate the variety of package styles Renesas Electronics has to offer. From their DIP4,8, and 16 that are optionally available in two different gull wing surface mount lead forms, Renesas Electronics packaging is designed to address engineers’ space constraints. DIP4 and 8 are optionally available in an 8mm creepage distance package. Surface mount packages include; SOP4 and 5, SSOP4 and 16, as well as SO8, and 4 pin Mini Flat package.
