ERAI was established in 1995 to represent independent distributors in the electronic components supply chain. ERAI will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, and over the course of two decades, ERAI has established a network that monitors possible counterfeit and non-conforming electronic components and flags suspect vendors and customers.
Today, ERAI works as an informational source.
ERAI members have access to a database which allow them to track possible high-risk counterfeit electronic components. The database can be filtered by manufacturer, part number, and suspected defect. The user can also view pictures of the suspect parts.
ERAI members can also file complaints about possible parts, vendors, or customers. Real-time email messages will alert other members of the concern.
ERAI also hosts conferences or informational sessions, updating its members of developments within the industry.
EarthTron is active member of ERAI.
Last week, John and Claudia were in Florida and stopped by to visit Mark and Kristal Snider at ERAI.
