source: EPS news There’s no short-term relief ahead for electronics manufacturers that are scrambling for components. Tight supplies of capacitors and resistors are expected to last into mid-2018—longer than industry experts expected. The dreaded words “allocation” and “double-ordering” are coming up more frequently, meaning OEMs and EMS providers are facing long-term sourcing challenges.
source: Alter Technology, ESA ESTEC, EPCI e-Symposium Abstract: During the last decade, a growing number of applications demanding higher power electrical consumption have emerged in some industrial sectors such as in the military, automotive or space ones. Consequently, electrical components with higher temperature range and rating voltage operation are needed. In addition, the good thermal […]
