Nexar Adds Industry Demand Index to Electronic Design to Delivery Index Report


Reading time ( words)

Nexar, a business unit of Altium LLC, has announced the addition of the Industry Demand Index to the Spectra Electronic Design to Delivery Index (EDDI) report. Published monthly as a free subscription, EDDI gives in-depth analysis and actionable data intelligence into what is happening in the electronics component industry by comparing current insights with information sourced from more than two years of component history of tens of millions of parts.

Spectra is Nexar’s suite of electronic industry data intelligence offerings and products that helps businesses better anticipate supply chain challenges and opportunities. Spectra’s inaugural EDDI report, released in February 2022, offered the Industry Supply Index, which provides insights into the supply chain industry. With the addition of the Industry Demand Index to the latest EDDI, the data provides a clear look into component interest and how that will affect supply trends. These combined signals give a clear picture of the current supply and demand landscape that businesses can use to make smarter component selection decisions.

“The Altium ecosystem meets at the intersection of the design, supply chain and manufacturing domains. Our unique industry viewpoint positions our Nexar business unit to provide actionable insights on electronic component trends,” says Daniel Schoenfelder, Head of Nexar Sales and Octopart. “We are proud that EDDI is now the best free source of supply and demand business intelligence for stakeholders across the electronic component industry.”

A recent global survey conducted by IPC found that electronics manufacturers continue to be impacted by global shortages in semiconductors and other components and parts, which is contributing to production delays and uncertainty in the industry. As a result of the uncertainties, stakeholders need business intelligence to make better decisions across the design, supply chain, and manufacturing spectrum. Businesses can utilize EDDI in their engineering and business workflows to navigate issues they encounter with their bill of materials (BOM).

The EDDI is the only free industry report that provides comprehensive business intelligence on market conditions that can be leveraged by all stakeholders in the electronic component space. Spectra’s business intelligence offerings will continue to provide unparalleled transformational insights to the electronics industry.

The latest EDDI containing both supply and demand indices is now available on nexar.com/spectra/eddi, with new reports released each month. Subscribing to the EDDI guarantees to receive the most accurate supply chain insights sent directly to your inbox on a monthly basis.

Altium’s EDDI Report Tracks Components’ Availability—Today and Historically

09/15/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
There’s one lesson that all designers have learned over the past few years: Components might be here today and gone tomorrow, so tracking your parts is more important than ever. Any resources that help you keep tabs on your required parts are invaluable in these days of 40-week lead times. Earlier this year, Altium released one such resource: the Electronic Design to Delivery Index (EDDI) report. Assembled from millions of bytes of data gleaned from the Octopart search engineer and the Nexar platform, the monthly EDDI report provides part availability histories going back years, as well as a real-time snapshot of global inventories.

John Watson Wants You—to Sign Up for His PCB Design Class

08/11/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
I-Connect007 columnist John Watson is teaching an introductory class on PCB design at Palomar College this fall, but this is much more than a basic design class. But John has hit a slight snafu: He needs a few more students to sign up before Aug. 23, or the class will be cancelled. It’s an online class, so you don’t have to live in San Diego to attend. In this interview, John talks about the genesis for the class and its benefits.

The Survey Said: Why Don’t You Know Your Fabricator?

When we want to find out what challenges our readers are facing, we just ask. And they don’t mind sharing—the good, the bad, and the ugly. In a recent survey, we asked our PCB designer readers, “Why don’t you know who is going to manufacture your boards?” Here are some of more interesting replies we received, edited slightly for clarity. Do you see yourself in these replies?
