Life in the Supply Chain Lane

Sometimes the (seemingly) simplest of projects come with the same problems you'd expect to find in the most complex projects. At various times in my 15 years here (That seems like a long time. I think I’d feel better calling... Read more

A look back on our Supply Chain challenges from the year 2031

Like most of us, I’ve been living in a start/stop, forward/backwards world for the last year and a few months. I can’t tell if the pandemic is closer to being over or if the light at the end of the... Read more

What Can You Do About Parts Shortages

I hate to put such a grim face on things, but the supply chain is a mess. There is no way to sugar coat it - a coating of sugar may make things taste better, but it mucks up the... Read more

Supply Chain - Again...

This is just getting worse, folks. The way our supply chain experts describe the situation to me: "There are parts shortages all over." That pretty much sums it up. The situation is unpredictable, dynamic and kind of ugly. So, what... Read more

Component supply - Is it panic time?

Is it panic time? If you know where your towel is, then no. But, it is time to prepare and take some action to protect yourself against supply chain disruptions. So, here's what we know: A fair number of silicon... Read more

Supply Chain Challenges are Back

Time to prepare for shortages Shortages and price increases are hitting the supply chain again. Some of the greatest effects are occurring in raw materials used in PCB fab and metal fabrication. Silicon components and capacitors are also showing increases... Read more

Temporary Suspension of Delivery Guarantee

As promised, Screaming Circuits has kept a close watch on the spread of the Coronavirus and its impact on the world of electronics manufacturing. The situation is changing rapidly and we now need to make some adjustments to keep our... Read more

Prepping - Risk Mitigation

As of this writing, Screaming Circuits has not seen much impact from Coronavirus caused supply chain issues. However, we are keeping a close eye on the situation and have a graduated response plan. Our objective is to minimize the impact... Read more

Prepping for Supply Chain Issues - Alternate part numbers

So far, Screaming Circuits has seen little impact from the world-wide coronavirus outbreak. However, that may change as component manufacturer factory closures in the affected areas start to eat into the supply chain. Shortages could start to appear at any... Read more

Top 5 Ways to Mitigate Component Availability Problems

Most of the electronics design world is by now aware that we're in a very serious period of components shortages. The hardest hit seem to be ceramic capacitors, but other passives as well as a variety of connectors and silicon... Read more
