Parametrically search and cross reference 1 Billion electronic components, including: semiconductors, passives and electromechanical components using partial or complete part numbers search. Select relevant attributes on all product types for hundreds of categories. review historical datasheets and PCNs available on your components. Gain an in-depth look into electronic component lifecycle statuses, Compliance data, alternatives and proactively manage obsolescence, available, environmental compliance data, with future benefits by knowing the forecasted lifecycle for components. Obtain comprehensive data on current environmental regulations such as REACH and RoHS directives, including full material declarations. Years to end of life forecasts are calculated using advanced lifecycle algorithms, allowing users to make better component selection decisions. Certificates of Compliance (CoCs), Material Declarations and Product Change Notifications (PCNs) are also associated at the part number level.
How does BOM grading improve my BOM?
BOM Grading offers automated part recommendations to effectively improve BOM grades and increase productivity. Each part indicating a high risk is paired with recommendations for alternate parts to increase the health of the BOM. Users can enhance productivity by solving significant issues and showing multi-sourcing options in one single view, eliminating the need for multiple Excel sheets. Customizable to specific company needs, the Advanced Risk reporting feature creates easily shared and exportable risk reports.
How can I manage environmental and supply chain compliance obligations?
SiliconExperts’ Compliance Module enables users to manage environmental and supply chain compliance requirements. The module covers chemical regulations ranging from EU REACH and RoHS, Prop65 to conflict minerals and much more. Companies can leverage tools within the P⁵ Platform to automate their supply chain data collection efforts as well as build customer and regulatory reporting forms to meet customer requests. The solution is fully enterprise integrated, enabling transparent synchronization of BOM and material data and supports the major PLM/ERP systems on the market. SiliconExpert actively monitors more than 20 regulations to ensure the P⁵ Platform is always current to reflect today’s regulatory landscape and scales to meet tomorrow’s challenges and rule changes.
