Designing is stressful enough, you shouldn’t have to worry about procuring parts as well. Unfortunately, this is the reality for most of us, especially in today’s climate. Supplies and prices seem to change overnight, and with counterfeit components being so prevalent it sometimes seems that the most difficult part of a project is being able to obtain trusted supply chain sources for your components. You need to ask yourself.

  • Can you trust your supplier? 

  • Are they using counterfeit parts? 

  • Is there enough supply? 

  • Are you within budget?

These are all important questions to answer, as any delays can cost you a first-mover advantage, and using bad parts can completely wipe out your budget. Fortunately Altium Designer® has teamed up with industry leader IHS Markit to give designers powerful insight into their supply chain.
