Vanguard has won a contract to sell Cyrix processors in the UK.
The news, which leaked out from customers and distributors this week, means that the UK based firm will initially sell products from the Natsemi subsidiary to UK distributors Flashpoint and Karma.
Vanguard's joint managing director Roy Taylor previously founded Blue Chip, a UK company that acted as an agent to sell IBM microprocessors. In the past few years, Vanguard has operated as a channel for selling memory chips from the Taiwanese firm of the same name into the north European market.
Taylor confirmed that a deal had been struck with Natsemi-Cyrix. "It has appointed us to support them in their efforts to promote and sell the Cyrix microprocessor range as their representative in the UK," he said. "We're also looking to do the same for them in Scandinavia."
NatSemi could not be contacted for comment at press time.
