Our database of component details gives complete control of production.
Complete control of costs, environmental footprint, service life and lead times.
300 million components
A massive, well-proven database gives a complete technical description, datasheet, RoHS and REACH compatibility and protection against conflict minerals for over 300 million components.
Longer lead time means delays
One of the biggest problems poor accessibility to components causes is longer lead time. When the period between ordering a component and it being delivered grows, a single component can disrupt an entire production plan.
The price of a component fluctuates in a predictable pattern throughout its service life. When the component is new, it will be expensive. After a few years on the market, it becomes cheaper before approaching the time when it goes out of production. It then becomes rarer, and thus more expensive.
Predictability and control are essential for the production of electronics. Having full control of components avoids nasty surprises with lead time, service life, availability, conflict minerals, eco-friendliness, recyclability and price.
To follow are some of the options and benefits of component tracking:
- BOM analysis
A BOM (Bill Of Material) analysis provides a complete risk analysis for your components.
- Service life analysis
Gives a precise prognosis of a component’s life on the market – and thus an indication of when you ought to look for new ones.
- Environmental requirements
Identifies which components fail to fulfil existing environmental legislation
- Risk monitoring
If a component is approaching its final years on the market, we will let you know, and advise you of equivalent components.
- Equivalent components
Find components that can replace others towards the end of their service life, or cut production costs throughout the production period.
- Risk analysis – service life
Find out whether components you have breach RoHS, the REACH regulation, Frank Dodd Act or contain conflict minerals before the first prototype is produced.
