For buyers and design engineers, few things are more frustrating than a delay caused by obsolete components or components not recommended for new design (NRND). Identifying product lifecycle and NRND products are two examples of value-added services from high service distributors like Mouser Electronics that go beyond simple component supply. Mouser gives suggestions for component alternatives, along with the risk level assessment for those potential replacements.
Having the most advanced technology to develop cost-efficient prototypes limits costly redesigns, manufacturing delays or even project termination. It also leads to a design edge in delivering more product features and capabilities, plus longer lifecycles. As an authorized global distributor, Mouser works with its 1,200-plus manufacturer partners to provide fast, easy access to industry’s newest components.
Mouser’s customers can be confident they’re designing with the most advanced, genuine electronics available and can subscribe to product notifications. The company offers real-time product availability through its website and customer service representatives, providing accurate product information for confident buying decisions.
Buyers can access technical data and application resources via Mouser’s Purchasing Resource Library. This features dozens of articles and videos that empower buyers with the insights needed to make informed purchasing decisions.
The Purchasing Resource Library contains instructional videos (developed in partnership with leading manufacturers) dedicated to some of the most important components in electronics design. The library also features articles addressing trending topics, such as vehicle charging infrastructure, chip shortages and supply chain challenges. It can help buyers choose the most suitable products for their design and engineering needs.
The site also offers links to the distributor’s services and tools, including the FORTE intelligent BoM tool, Price and Availability Assistant and API hub. Mouser is a one-stop shop for semiconductors and electronic components, making it easy for buyers to find and purchase the tools for innovative new designs.
Mouser launches more new products than any other global distributor and its website is updated many times per day with new information. The website features access to more than six million orderable part numbers.
For added service, buyers may also order and communicate with Mouser representatives via phone, email, fax and live chat. Orders are shipped directly from Mouser’s global distribution center in Texas, which features automation for expedited processing.
