Determining Factors for choosing semiconductor suppliers
In the past several years one large issue seems to have crept into the supply chain of OEMs and EMS providers. Specifically, substandard or even re-marked semiconductor devices – imitations that do not meet the fit, form, and function of the part number. The volume of these substandard parts has increased due to EMS cost saving initiatives and quick-turn artists responding to spot shortages. Fly-by-night, ethically challenged Chinese suppliers are the primary sources of these goods. American/Canadian re-sellers then promote these parts at discounted prices. In many cases the smaller re-seller has no idea that these parts will not meet the product specification.

In today's fast-paced markets, all organizations are being forced to adapt and change as a result of global conditions. Most recently, the worldwide semiconductor distribution and manufacturing network has been impacted by RoHS, WEEE, and multiple other pending environmental regulations.

The Gray Market from the Perspective of an Independent Distributor
Gray market sales of IT and electronics products have been on the rise for several years now. Gray market refers to "the flow of new goods through distribution channels other than those authorized or intended by the manufacturer or producer". While this increase in gray market sales of IT and electronics products is viewed by many as problematic and requiring immediate attention, if one assumes a free market "where the price of an item is arranged by the mutual non-coerced consent of sellers and buyers, with the supply and demand of that item not being regulated by a government", clearly there are companies benefiting from this so an increase in activity is not surprising. As independent distributors ("independents") usually get lumped in with the gray market, the goal of this paper is to examine the role independents play in the electronic component distribution market as well as explore some reasons for why components are now more widely available outside the franchise distribution ("franchises") channel. ...continue
