Connected devices are now a way of life: wearable technology that detects an oncoming seizure, street lamps that measure traffic patterns to improve energy efficiency and homes that creates the perfect environment of temperature, lighting, music, etc. before the owner arrives home. Common objects are now required to sense, capture and communicate data.

IDC estimates that by 2020 there will be 30 billion internet-connected, sensor-enabled objects and another 182 billion that could easily be enabled. When the term “Internet of Things” was coined a few years ago, it seems like a rather abstract,...Continue Reading >>

Relatively weak end-market demand and only a mildly positive economic outlook have created a basically flat market for connectors. The ongoing weakening demand that started in Q2 2015 and continued throughout the balance of last year has resulted in the leaning of the supply chains of both component manufacturers and OEMs. Most supply chain strategies are currently focused on cost reduction rather than dealing with excess inventory or capacity....Continue Reading >>

Suppliers, distributors and customers share forecasts, inventory data, order status and compliance information; they transact business in multiple languages and currencies; they monitor their partners and external inputs for potential disruptions and they keep abreast of their competitors. Yet the push for more data is on: Big Data will give corporations deeper and more “actionable” data and the IoT will capture and process information from billions of connected devices. The electronics supply chain has to capture and process the data most meaningful to its constituents and utilize it toward improving visibility, managing risk, reducing costs and a myriad of other tasks important to the OEM customer base....Continue Reading >>btnForward.png
