Making The Pieces Fit

Distribution Series Part I

In the first of a series of distribution-focused Fish Fry episodes, I interview Alex Iuorio and Jeff Ittel from Avnet Embedded about how Avnet used a start-up mentality to get this new embedded division up and running. They discuss, among other things, how they see distribution playing a vital role in each step of the electronics design and supply chain. Then, in keeping with the distribution theme, I look into the ramifications of counterfeit chip production and highlight three overall challenges we face in protecting ourselves from counterfeit components.

Also, I check out the biggest news of the week and how one of three key elements of this announcement ties into the world of superheroes.

I have another Amazon.com gift certificate to give out, but you’ll have to listen to find out how you can win.
