Supporting your whole design gets you to market faster

Working together from the start, we make sure there aren’t any blind spots across your entire board design. Our field applications engineers will use their experience and training to match passive components with the active devices enabling your application. Plus, we’ll be able to show you validated block diagrams to provide a complete picture, right from the start.

With our reference designs and application notes, the layout and prototyping phase has never been faster. We even have the Bill of Material (BOM) details for many of the development kits we’ve created with orderable part numbers ready so you can copy and paste them right into your drawings and other control documents.

When it’s time to release your product into the market, our broad, on-hand passives inventory helps get the process off the ground quickly. As your demand increases, Avnet will have the right mix of products available to keep your production lines flowing.

Our supply-chain services and deep supplier relationships allow for plenty of advanced warning if a change happens with one of your passive components. We do more than inform you about a product change notification (PCN) or end of life (EOL) notice—we come up with viable options to minimize any potential impact or risk.

When you partner with Avnet for your passive components requirements, you get a whole lot more than just parts. Get started today by contacting your local Avnet expert. Check the office locations of our EMEA business units.
