|The world of electronics moves so quickly that it can be difficult to find an electronic component distributor that deals with parts you need, even if they aren’t the latest technology. Just because your electronic devices are a year or two old doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to repair them, yet many distributors don’t stock obsolete components because it isn’t worth their while or they simply can’t be bothered to source them. In many cases, the distributor has a contract with one particular manufacturer and cannot source items from other companies.
In order to find parts that might not be readily available in today’s fast moving marketplace, it’s necessary to have good connections. We have wholesale distribution connections with a large number of electronic manufacturers around the world, which means there are more options to choose from. When one company discontinues a part, others continue to provide it, yet many retailers don’t have access to these providers. Often, these are smaller companies and may be located in another country, making it even more difficult to find them.
An electronic component line card lets the client see exactly where the pieces are coming from, which brand names are available and which parts are being sourced from these companies. In today’s global market, it’s not uncommon to have dozens of companies able to provide what would usually be considered obsolete components, it’s just a matter of finding them. Some of the manufacturers aren’t as well known as the big names, yet they continue to turn out quality products.
Despite this, there are still some electronic parts that are not necessarily being made anymore and these are particularly difficult to find. Another problem is counterfirt components. It isn’t uncommon for retailers to find themselves being asked for specific components that are not being manufactured anymore and they are usually required to repair an older device. Just because something is no longer being built, however, does not mean it no longer exists. Having access to manufacturers around the world and the ability to find truly obsolete components is the sign of a good electronic component distributor.
We are able to offer wholesale distribution of many different quality semiconductors and electronic components because we have the connections necessary to source the more difficult parts. Maintaining relationships with manufacturers and electronics companies worldwide makes it far easier to provide the necessary products as needed.
