Electronic Component Distributors
Executive Summary By Alison Cole
Sandwiched between original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers, distributors of electronic components often find themselves in an awkward situation. Some, like Newark InOne of Canada, conduct testing to check if the component is compliant, and grade their suppliers accordingly. Customers will have to continue relying upon distributors to get assurance of compliance.
Among the top distributors of electronic components are Arrow Electronics, Avnet, Future Electronics, Bell Microproducts, Memec Insight, TTI, Newark InOne, Digi-key, All American and Nu Horizons. All of them distribute components like semiconductors, passives, electromechanical devices, connector products, computer equipment, embedded subsystems, crystals, test equipment, and active components, including analog, clock and timing devices, and so on.
Test Electronic Components
Executive Summary By Timothy Payn
To be able to test electronic components accurately is essential to identifying faults for any electronic repairer. Top quality electronic testing equipment is therefore much sought after.
Normally, however, this type of equipment to test electronic components can be relatively expensive, especially for do it yourself enthusiasts and people thinking about starting a small or part-time business.
There are some guides available to show beginners how to test electronic components and how to repair electronic devices and appliances. Good electronic test guides should include the following:
Secondly, make sure any guide not only explains how to make your own testing equipment but also explains which equipment to use for particular jobs, how you actually employ that equipment, what to test for and in what sequence. It's all very well to have superior testing equipment to hand but if there is no methodology to follow in testing, you will just be wasting your time.
Without doubt, working out how to test electronic components can become quite complex. Ensure any manual also covers testing for faults and shorts using an analogue meter and how to make such a meter.
