Electronic component shortages have been a huge obstacle on booming electronic marketplaces since 2018. While new orders keep on rolling in and manufacturing remains steady, there simply has not been enough capacitors, resistors, and other parts available.
Traceability (or TCC – Track, Trace, and Control) is a phrase that is being brought up more often when it comes to choosing the right EMS provider. Traceability involves tracking the flow of products and materials as well as their location. It is important that an EMS provider has a traceable system implemented within their ranks.

Following the UK’s exit from the European Union (EU) and ending of the transition period on 31 December 2020, Northern Ireland continues to have access to Great Britain (GB) and the EU markets for goods.
As we enter the first quarter of 2021, we reflect on 2020 and see the impact it has had on our supply chain and business models. Inevitably, 2020 caused widespread difficulties in the marketplace, with all areas of the economy feeling the pressure. This left many electronic manufacturers with an ambiguous vision of what the future may look like.
