Accurate product information equals confident purchasing

Today’s world is powered in large part by semiconductors and electronic components. On top of recent shortages, few things are more frustrating to buyers and engineers than a delay caused by using obsolete components or components not recommended for new designs (NRND). 

Identifying product lifecycle and NRND products are just two examples of value-added services from high service distributors like Mouser that go beyond simple component supply. Mouser offers 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 offers 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 the newest components.

Mouser’s customers can subscribe to receive product notifications online. The company offers real-time product availability through its website and customer service representatives, providing accurate product information to make confident buying decisions.

In addition, Mouser delivers easy access for buyers to technical data and application resources with its Purchasing Resource Library. This online library 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 that address trending topics, such as vehicle charging infrastructure, chip shortages and supply chain challenges. It can help buyers choose the most suitable products for their needs. 

The site also offers convenient links to the distributor’s services and tools, including the FORTE intelligent BOM tool, Price and Availability Assistant and API hub.
