Keeping Cost-Savings at the Forefront in a Shortage Market

Posted by JOHN PALLAZOLA

Feb 14, 2018 11:14:03 AM

 

The electronic manufacturing industry is expected to remain in a shortage situation through the end of 2018. In an electronic component shortage market supply chain professionals are often pulled off of their core cost-savings and QC practices in order to procure an IC, FPGA, or even a passive component that is causing a potential line-down situation. When we analyze your entire BOM we look to fill your shortages but also to lower your overall COGS (Cost of Goods Sold) and we ALWAYS maintain the highest QC standards so you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.

 

To help our OEM and EMS customers increase their profitability and reduce component cost, Advanced MP Technology (AMPT) provides Cost Reduction Programs (CRP) customized to fit our individual customer’s needs.

 

This information allows our customers to make key decisions on:

  • Volume component buys
  • Performing life-cycle cost analysis
  • Benchmarking and cost optimization exercises
  • Direct negotiations to help drive down cost initiatives with OCM annually and/or quarterly
  • Solving issues in the supply chain process

 

Shortage, allocation, and obsolescence mitigation are all important, at different times, but the core of our supply chain value lies in our quality control and cost savings programs.

 Free Cost Savings Analysis
 

We continuously compare specific BOM(s) with our global database to offer potential savings to our customer’s TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Real examples of BOM savings:

  • We have been able to provide multiple customers with an annual savings of 10%
  • LTB and cost savings: Providing alternate options for placing LTB orders and being able to discover cost savings in the process. Product was procured, allocated, and scheduled monthly over a three-year period.
  • Obsolete parts: Brand new components in stock and available for a scheduled delivery. AMPT was able to save on our customers’ bottom line by being aware when components are about to become obsolete. If the component has already become obsolete, we find a good value or a suggested replacement, as soon as possible.
 
Send us your BOM with your standard pricing and we will analyze it and come back to you with a detailed quote on how our power buying status, consolidated QC, shipping, and VMI can be very effective in lowering your cost of goods sold (COGS).

The NOR & NAND Flash Shortage

Posted by JOHN PALLAZOLA

Feb 13, 2018 8:18:01 AM

The NAND flash memory shortage is affecting many different manufacturers and their products.
 
The $122 billion memory chip industry has enjoyed an unprecedented boom since mid-2016, expanding nearly 70% in 2017 alone thanks to the growth of smartphones and cloud services that require more powerful chips that can store more data. Apple and Samsung used the bulk of available flash memory for their phones, leading to shortages that affect a number of devices.
 
 
NAND flash and other embedded non-volatile solid-state memories will be a significant driver for IoT and other applications depending upon network edge connections as well as serving as primary storage for the Cloud.
 
These technologies will drive the development of automobile ADAS and autonomous vehicles as well as infotainment. They will also drive the growth of cloud primary storage, connected automated manufacturing and the devices we use every day.

Here are the details:
NRF51822-CFAC-R  Nordic Semiconductor
Quantity: 25,000 pieces
Date Code: 16+
Factory Sealed
Price: $1.52 USD Each
Description: IC RF TXRX+MCU BLUETOOTH 62WLCSP

Data Sheet

 

Products that use this chip: 

‘SAFE METER’ from Optex employs Nordic’s nRF51822 SoC to wirelessly download driver travel logs to the user’s iOS- or Android-compatible smartphone or tablet. The SAFE METER adheres to the dashboard of a vehicle and records sudden acceleration and braking, as well as irregular steering via the device’s built-in three-axis accelerometer. Optex explains that the device provides the driver with immediate feedback via alarms and icons in the event of potential accidents so they can take corrective action. SAFE METER also provides the driver with an easy to understand careful driving ‘count’ display, designed to promote safe driving awareness. The fewer logged ‘incidents’ during a trip, the higher the count, displayed numerically on the device’s display.

 
The 'Dolphin PTM 215B Pushbutton Transmitter Module' from EnOcean enables OEMs to develop self-powered smart lighting solutions.  The Dolphin sensor modules use a miniaturized electro-dynamic energy transducer that converts motion, light, or temperature differences into electrical energy. Together with an efficient energy management system, the energy harvesting technology ensures reliable communication between maintenance-free Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The maintenance-free wireless sensor solutions from EnOcean thus increase flexibility, usability, and energy efficiency in smart buildings, while also significantly saving time and money. Because of the ultra low power consumption of the nRF51822 the harvested energy is sufficient to power wireless control of Bluetooth low energy peripherals such as smart light bulbs. The modules also offer Near Field Communication (NFC) capability, making it easier to configure the switch upon initial set-up.
 
 
The ‘bong 3 HR’ bracelet from bong employs Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52832 SoC and displays incoming calls, SMS, and social media alerts in addition to exercise data. It also supports up to 20 days of operation and Bluetooth low energy connectivity between recharges of the bong 3 HR’s 60mAh Li-ion battery. It has been engineered to minimize power consumption with features such as the 2.4GHz radio’s modest 5.5mA peak RX/TX currents and a fully-automatic power management system that reduces power consumption by up to 80 percent compared with Nordic’s nRF51 Series SoCs. The result is a Bluetooth low energy solution which offers 90 CoreMark/mA, up to twice as power efficient as competing devices.
 
 

The ‘Beacool CarFit Band’ employs Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC to provide Bluetooth low energy wireless connectivity and support processor-intensive application. The Beacool CarFit Band employs Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC to provide Bluetooth low energy wireless connectivity between the device and Bluetooth 4.0 and later, smartphones and tablets, as well as other wireless gateways, and to handle the processor-intensive algorithms required for the device’s multifunction capabilities. The wristband has a standby time of more than one month between recharges, thanks in part to the ultra low power characteristics of the Nordic SoC.

 

The ‘Movesense’ platform from Suunto provides a programmable sensor, APIs, and software libraries and is designed for applications ranging from sports and health to logistics and gaming. A professionally-managed Application Programming Interface (API) and software libraries allow developers to build applications using the sensor and develop associated iOS and Android mobile apps. The nRF52832 SoC provides the Bluetooth low energy wireless connectivity between the sensor and Bluetooth 4.0 and later, smartphones and tablets. The nRF52832 SoC’s 64MHz, 32-bit ARM® Cortex® M4F processor feature ample performance to run both the Movesense platform’s application software and the Bluetooth low energy RF protocol software. 

 

The ‘BT5 Bi-Direction Audio Remote Module’ from RFsen employs Nordic’s Bluetooth 5-compatible nRF52832 SoC to enable ‘better than CD quality’ audio streaming between consumer electronic products. Due to the Nordic nRF52832 SoC’s support for Bluetooth 5’s 2 Mbps physical layer, RFsen’s module can support high-bandwidth audio streaming via Bluetooth low energy, offering a 48KHz audio sampling rate - superior to CD quality - with much lower power consumption than Bluetooth audio solutions based on Bluetooth Basic Rate/Enhanced Data Rate technology.

 

'4GHz RF and Bluetooth low energy solutions for gaming accessories' The nRF51822 is the only bluetooth low energy device for Gaming.  Nordic Semiconductor's ULP wireless solutions enable you to cater for the full range of wireless gaming devices – from mainstream gaming controllers through to more advanced devices with built-in gyros – while meeting or exceeding end users' expectations in terms of features and performance.  The nRF51 Series is based on the 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 CPU and Nordic's leading multiprotocol radio and supports Bluetooth low energy, ANT, and 2.4 GHz proprietary solutions.
