MANSFIELD, Texas -- Mouser Electronics, Inc., a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, made public today its new worldwide distribution agreement with Critical Link LLC. Critical Link provides an extensive family of custom, off-the-shelf products used by engineers as building blocks to accelerate their product development efforts for industrial and scientific applications. Working in support, Mouser caters to design engineers and buyers by delivering What’s Next in emerging technologies.
This new international distribution agreement between Critical Link and Mouser gives engineers a high-performance CPU platform that accelerates the product development cycle. Specifically, the MityDSP and MityARM platforms are small form-factor, customizable system on modules (SoM) featuring DSP and/or ARM, and FPGA, that couples best-in-class, off-the-shelf technology with Critical Link’s last-mile I/O customization. This framework can help engineers bring their quality applications to market faster and with more cost-effectiveness. The MityDSP/MityARM family covers a broad range of processors, including TI’s Integra OMAP-L138 ARM + DSP, Sitara AM1808, and Sitara AM1810 ARM Processors for applications requiring PROFIBUS support.
“With the addition of Critical Link’s innovative off-the-shelf products, we expand our portfolio of system-on-modules to aid design engineers in speeding new product development,” explains Russell Rasor, Mouser Vice President of Advanced Technologies. “Critical Link shares Mouser’s focus on delivering products that bring a speed-to-market advantage. We are excited to offer Critical Link’s technology to our customers worldwide.”
“We are pleased to team with Mouser and become a part of an extensive and highly-regarded network that’s laser-focused on meeting the needs of design engineers and buyers,” says Critical Link Vice President Tom Catalino. “We look forward to strengthening our company’s market presence by providing the MityDSP and MityARM families of leading-edge SoMs to an ever-growing list of international customers.”

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
