Preventing Supply Chain Issues Upfront with Digi-Key and OrCAD

Component availability and lead time issues have always been a challenge and have only become more pronounced with the current global shortages. If you aren’t considering the supply chain early in the design process you are opening yourself up to late-stage delays and possible re-designs. Designers need to be able to ensure the parts they choose are available early and easily in order to keep projects on-time and on-budget.

 Join EMA and the supply chain experts at Digi-Key to discuss what to look for when selecting parts and how to embed supply chain intelligence directly into your PCB design flow. 

What you will learn:

  • How to check your existing design for part availability and lead time issues in real-time
  • How to quickly replace unavailable parts in your design
  • How to easily include supply chain criteria in your part selection process
  • How to build a supply chain ready BOM easily with Digi-Key
  • How to do this all without leaving your PCB CAD environment
