Mouser’s VP marketing EMEA, Graham Maggs, explains how the company helps its customers avoid component obsolescence. To discover more, visit Stand 32.

Staying ahead in the electronics market is not easy. Engineers and purchasing teams must continually adapt to evolving consumer or application requirements, while there
are also countless hidden challenges behind the scenes. Purchasing decisions can be impacted by budget/resource limitations and the rapid pace of component innovation adds another layer of difficulty.

An area of this evolution impacting design engineers and purchasing professionals is the development of new technology potentially leading to obsolescence. Therefore, it is vital to know when components have entered the final stages of the product life cycle so it can be planned into the design and production schedules for end devices.

Mouser believes that transparency is key to facilitating the design of cutting-edge technology and to creating and maintaining successful partnerships with customers and suppliers. The company supports this process by offering visibility of every stage of the component life cycle from preliminary, when engineering samples or pre-qualification samples are available, through to components being not recommended for new designs (NRND) when the components or products are likely to be reaching obsolescence.

Not having enough information about a product’s lifecycle can greatly impact any engineering product, potentially leading to lengthy redesign delays and additional costs. Mouser eliminates this by clearly labelling life cycle information on thousands of products to help avoid out-of-stock issues, project delays and costly redesigns.
