Reading time ( words)

Nexar, a business unit of Altium LLC, has announced the launch of Spectra, a suite of electronics industry data intelligence offerings and products to help businesses better anticipate supply chain challenges and opportunities, and respond strategically to changing market conditions. Never before has the electronics industry had access to this level of transformational insights from a single source.

“Spectra is the only source of electronics industry business intelligence that is combining end-to-end data from supply chain, design, and manufacturing sectors,” says Ted Pawela, Chief Ecosystem Officer at Altium and Head of the Nexar business unit. “Our unique position in the industry allows us to provide our customers and partners a cohesive view of the electronics industry market conditions that is unrivaled by competitors."

Spectra empowers companies to make smarter and proactive design and purchasing decisions with in-depth, actionable insights and intelligence. The Electronic Design to Delivery Index (EDDI) is the first product from the Spectra suite being released. The EDDI will consist of three indicators: supply, demand and design. The inaugural report features the Industry Supply Index.

Published monthly and available at no cost, the EDDI is a robust and accurate report that identifies industry trends and changes. The Spectra Industry Supply Index provides insights into the supply chain industry, offering a detailed picture of global part availability and stock over time. Future iterations of the EDDI will include design and manufacturing data.

Along with EDDI, additional Spectra products will soon be launched, including Supply Chain Resilience, a custom report with in-depth data on your bill of materials (BOM) that allows companies to view detailed trends for specific sets of components. Daily Inventory History, a historical record of part-level inventory availability, will also be launched in the near future.

Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

Hard to believe that a year ago, I was getting ready to attend DesignCon and IPC APEX EXPO and wondering if this Novel Coronavirus was going to cut into attendance from the Pacific Rim. Now, we’re accustomed to virtual trade shows. They’re not ideal, but they’re the best we can do while meeting in person is not possible. We’ve learned to adapt.
