 In this episode, Ed Smith, President and CEO of SMTC, shares his thoughts on the electronic component industry's state when dealing with obsolescence and end-of-life components. Original equipment manufacturers and contract manufacturers that use electronic components face a big challenge. 

How do you handle that one component that is now obsolete, when you need it for a new order you just received? Ed discusses how electronic component manufacturers could better serve their end customers by helping them navigate obsolescence and end-of-life issues.
