Montreal – February 2, 2016 – INLYNK ™, a premier software solutions provider for OEM’s and EMS’s in the electronics industry, today announced an integration with SiliconExpert Technologies, a leading electronic components database, to provide extensive technical and operational data related to components.
SiliconExpert’s customers can now gain access to chemical & environmental compliance data through Optymo, allowing them to accurately forecast obsolescence for electronic components within Optymo. Dealing with this information is crucial at the design phase for some specific industries.
In the aerospace market, products are usually complex in nature and require substantial investments with respect to engineering and certifications of all types. Most of the products’ life often exceeds twenty years. Therefore it is essential to be able to track the lifecycle of the components and analyze the business risks in future years.
Esterline CMC Electronics, designer and manufacturer of leading technology electronics products for the aviation, Optymo user and SiliconExpert subscriber, is looking forward to this update. « The benefits of using a third party to connect our internal applications to Optymo and access business information in real time are in subcontracting the maintenance of communication interfaces. Optymo will be adapted by INLYNK with respect to future changes in external databases that will largely become transparent for Esterline CMC Electronics. This will reduce our internal maintenance costs. » said Yves Noiseux, Estimating Manager at Esterline CMC Electronics.
« Esterline CMC Electronics has taken a leading position in this integration with SiliconExpert. This integration will not only help the users improve their procurement process but also mitigate product risk assessment by preventing from obsolescence issues.» said Patrice Commune, President & CEO at INLYNK Software.
The SiliconExpert integration is available and accessible to Optymo customers with an active SiliconExpert subscription. The SiliconExpert API and subscription services are available from SiliconExpert.
