CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - May 21, 2019
SiliconExpert, a world leader in electronic component databases and parts information have joined forces with EMA Design Automation®, an innovator in the development of electronic product design solutions and methodologies, to eliminate unnecessary re-designs due to component sourcing issues.
The two companies are combining forces to enable engineers to stay one step ahead of obsolescence, compliance and inventory risk during the design stage. Equipping engineers with data early in the design process will enable companies to avoid costly redesigns and time-to-market delays later.
Through advanced partner integrations, SiliconExpert and EMA Design Automation will feed real-time component information, drawn from over a billion components, straight to a design engineer's desktop. This integrated CAD tool intelligence allows a design engineer to make the right component selection the first time based on component availability, compliance, risk, and obsolescence criteria. Enabling engineers to make these critical decisions at the start of the design process ensures uninterrupted delivery schedules with an accurate supply-chain-ready BOM.
"Obsolete parts, RoHS / REACH compliance issues, inadequate stock—almost every engineer has been bitten by one of these issues at some point within their supply chain," says Manny Marcano, president, EMA Design Automation. "Too often we hear from customers that their BOMs are being rejected by supply chain due to component sourcing issues that were not identified at the design phase. This adds weeks if not months to overall time-to-market. By joining of forces with SiliconExpert we can enable engineers to define pertinent parts at the conceptual design phase, which has become a cornerstone of a successful design methodology. "
"SiliconExpert provides dynamic commerce data which reinforces the engineer's CAD library data," says Martin Chatterton, director and general manager of SiliconExpert. "This dynamic data gives every company the ability to build better, budget-conscious products faster."
This new collaboration will provide design teams with the supply chain optimized tools and data they need to avoid unnecessary component sourcing issues and re-designs, so they can bring their products to market successfully.
