Nexar Releases Latest Edition of the Electronic Design to Delivery IndexMay 27, 2022 | Nexar, a business unit of Altium LLC
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
Nexar - a business unit of Altium LLC - released the latest edition of the Electronic Design to Delivery Index (EDDI). Featuring both the Industry Supply Index (ISI) and the recently added Industry Demand Index (IDI), the April 2022 edition of EDDI contains the best free source of supply and demand business intelligence for stakeholders across the electronic component industry.
In this edition of the EDDI, we call attention to a number of important trends:
- The Industry Supply Index reversed trends in April, posting a decrease for the first time in nearly a year.
- This decrease in the Industry Supply Index is largely due to lower supply in key categories including Connectors and Discrete Semiconductors
- Despite this drop, other categories did see an increase in available supply, with Power Products seeing the largest increase.
- The Industry Demand Index retreated somewhat month over month, with sourcing activity cooling for several categories including connectors and sensors.
- Demand activity for Integrated Circuits remains extremely high despite a slight dip in activity from the previous month.

I-Connect007 has just released the latest episode of its podcast series, On the Line with..., which focuses on designing for reality in the electronics industry. In this episode, host Nolan Johnson talks with ASC Sunstone VP/Manager Matt Stevenson about CAD tool features and data formats that help designers make better decisions and transfer better designs to manufacturing.
On the cusp of another IPC APEX EXPO, we focus on how bare board fabricators can maximize their time and investment at the show. We visited with Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist, and Julia Gumminger, IPC professional development and events manager, as well as Udo Welzel and Stanton Rak, the chairs of the technical program committee, to discuss the technical depth and breadth that the 2024 show will bring to fabricators and professionals all along the supply chain.
