Dealing With Component Shortages That Impact Battery Packs Designs Webinar

As you know, component shortages are impacting product lead times around the world. Advanced smart battery packs and chargers are no exception. Over recent years, electronic circuit functionality has been consolidated into smaller ICs that can manage a lot of functionality into small, easy-to-use single ICs. Unfortunately, these ICs are single-sourced ICs with lead times stretching beyond 80 weeks. These extremely long lead times can kill projects and companies.

Dealing With Component Shortages That Impact Battery Packs Designs

In this webinar we review methods that we use to minimize or eliminate these single-sourced components used in battery pack manufacturing. Along with ways to layout circuit boards to allow component flexibility preventing redesigns, and methods to use firmware to reduce dependencies on sole-sourced parts.

Celebrating 70 Years of Manufacturing Excellence
America's Oldest. A History of Innovation.

Over the past 70 years, the electronics manufacturing industry has changed dramatically as the industry continues to adapt to evolving demands and technology. Epec is at the forefront of innovation, with the expertise and agility to move at the speed of today’s businesses. At Epec, the customer comes first, and everything we do must be put through that filter. Whether it is developing e-commerce platforms to make it easier to work with us or creating a new product introduction (NPI) process that helps our customers get to market faster, we must focus on building the new. By doing that every day, and by always making the customer our top priority, we plan on being here for another 70 years and then some.
