  1. Beyond the Chip: Why Value-Added Solutions Are a Win-Win

    Beyond the Chip: Why Value-Added Solutions Are a Win-Win

    So you’ve finally procured your desired electronic component. Now what? With the global semiconductor shortage significantly changing the way companies do business, it’s no surprise that some distributors are offering more than just the actual product. So instead of providing only the electronic component, some distributors will include value-added services such as connector assemblies, kitting, special packaging, device programming, and custom design capabilities like enclosure modifications. Other distributors might also offer supply chain solutions in addition to the product, like just-in-time (JIT) deliveries, consignment, and forecast management.

    AEM Components Offers Innovative SMD Fuses Designed for Automotive Applications

    Electric and hybrid vehicle use is rapidly on the rise. According to a recent report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), electric cars could make up 57% of all passenger car sales worldwide. With that rise in electric vehicle (EV) use comes the need for advanced surface-mount fuse technology and highly reliable circuit protection for high-stress automotive applications. Enter AEM.

  3. How the Rise in Electric Vehicles Impacts the Semiconductor Industry

    How the Rise in Electric Vehicles Impacts the Semiconductor Industry

    Today about 7.2 million electric vehicles are on the world’s roads. Why is that? Let’s take a look at the US for example: tighter regulations on CO2 emissions, government incentives, and regulatory policies play a huge role in consumer demands and production of electric vehicles. Another factor that contributes to the growing number of electric vehicles on the road is better battery life—enabling drivers to travel longer distances. The ability to travel further makes these cars significantly more appealing to the general public.
