What is Strategic Sourcing and Why Is It Important?

There are few industries more dependent on a reliable supply of components than electronics manufacturing. Here’s how strategic sourcing could help.

The MLCC Shortage: Will it Continue in 2020?

Because of the popularity of MLCCs, there has been an industry-wide shortage for the past two years. Currently, lead times are up to 50 weeks on new orders, some suppliers aren’t accepting new orders for MLCCs and others are cancelling existing orders.

In response to the shortage, some component manufacturers have imposed allocations on the amount of MLCCs that can be ordered by OEMs, and many have increased the price of their MLCCs, even applying this increase to orders that have already been placed. Due to this, many OEMs are struggling to complete their own productions and are reaching line-stops.
