Society today relies increasingly on electronic devices. The industry is experiencing rapid growth, and constant change. When a manufacturer buys components (sometimes through a distributor) they must base their decisions on accurate information. The electronics produced are used by consumers in many market segments. In some of these segments (for example, in the medical sector) it can be critical that the products be reliable solutions. The value of the components and products is high, and consumers who invest in quality need to know they are getting that quality. With a manufacturer's brand and reputation on the line, it is vitally important that components be authentic. An efficient, stable supply chain supports everyone in the industry.
