Nexar Releases Latest Edition of the Electronic Design to Delivery Index

Reading time ( words)

Nexar - a business unit of Altium LLC - released the latest edition of the Electronic Design to Delivery Index (EDDI). Featuring both the Industry Supply Index (ISI) and the recently added Industry Demand Index (IDI), the April 2022 edition of EDDI contains the best free source of supply and demand business intelligence for stakeholders across the electronic component industry.

In this edition of the EDDI, we call attention to a number of important trends:

  • The Industry Supply Index reversed trends in April, posting a decrease for the first time in nearly a year.
  • This decrease in the Industry Supply Index is largely due to lower supply in key categories including Connectors and Discrete Semiconductors
  • Despite this drop, other categories did see an increase in available supply, with Power Products seeing the largest increase.
  • The Industry Demand Index retreated somewhat month over month, with sourcing activity cooling for several categories including connectors and sensors.
  • Demand activity for Integrated Circuits remains extremely high despite a slight dip in activity from the previous month.

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

06/23/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
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?

The Survey Said: Designing Around Missing Data

06/09/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
One of the best tools we have for keeping our fingers on the pulse of the industry is the reader survey. When we want to find out what’s going on, we just ask. Fortunately, our readers are not a shy bunch of folks. They don’t mind sharing—the good, the bad, and the ugly. In a recent survey, we asked our PCB designer readers, “What missing information or data (impedance requirements, library data, etc.) do you find yourself having to ‘design around’?”

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

04/08/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Spring has definitely sprung, and the trade show season continues to roll right along. Managing Editor Nolan Johnson just returned from DesignCon 2022, and as he says in his review, the attendance was up from last year’s event, which had been at the McEnery Convention Center in the waning days of the pandemic. I hope we’re getting back to normal, whatever that means. This week, we have a few articles about Industry 4.0, as well as a column on setting your priorities. We have a cool article about methods for measuring the breakdown of resins during multiple thermal laminations, and a conversation with an EMS company president who realized that he was actually running a data collection firm that happened to make circuit boards. Can you say the same about your own company?
