"In the past, obsolescence data was limited to available/not available stats provided directly by part manufacturers. Parts were selected with little to no insight into their obsolescence lifecycle, leaving the possibility of selecting a soon-to-be obsolete part dangerously high. We’ve seen some nice savings in man hours, rather than going to a bunch of different sources, which is very time consuming, we can often just go to SiliconExpert and get the data we need right away.”

Lenny Tosto | Engineer | Northrop Grumman

"Managing our component database and keeping it updated was a daunting task. Our engineers require the latest information on the electronic components selected for our products and any lapse in the availability or freshness of the data is simply not acceptable. If it weren’t for SiliconExpert’s tools, we would still be living in the stone age.”

John Starr | Component Engineer | Intermec, Inc.

SiliconExpert gives me leads on parts I might not otherwise know about,” said Stieg. “It opens up new possibilities and helps me verify the information I get from other sources.”
