MONT SAINT GUIBERT, BELGIUM -- Cissoid, the leader in high-temperature semiconductor solutions and Future Electronics, the world-class distributor of semiconductors and electronic components announced today the signing of a global distribution agreement, which will enable Future to address the growing market of high-temperature and high-reliability electronics with Cissoid products. Future will distribute Cissoid integrated circuits and discrete components in EMEA, the Americas, and in some selected Far-East countries like India.
Lucy Pinho, Director of Product Marketing at Future Electronics declared: “We are seeing a growing demand for higher temperature and higher reliability semiconductors in a number of key markets such as industrial and automotive, where the traditional components no longer meet the technical requirements of our customers. Cissoid portfolio of products, their roadmap and vision, and their recognition in the field as the leader for ultimate reliability and extreme environment solutions make Cissoid a partner and supplier of choice for Future.”
"As the pioneer of the high-temperature semiconductor market since 2000, we are seeing now an explosion of the demand in a number of segments that required us to change gear with a world-class distributor and strengthen our presence and our supply-chain fulfilment channels. We are delighted to see Future sharing our vision and now supporting our products, and are expecting their in-depth market and sales expertise to accelerate our growth” said Tony Denayer, CEO at Cissoid.

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.
