Digi-Key Electronics and Z2Data have partnered to offer priority support and component data for companies creating devices such as ventilators and testing solutions in order to help combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
By offering these services at no cost, Digi-Key will help medical device manufacturers source components quickly and ramp up production.
Through the partnership, Z2Data is offering no-cost access to its database of more than one billion electronic components through its Part Risk Manager and Supply Chain Watch tools. These tools allow organizations to managing their bill-of-materials, make informed part selection decisions, find cross-references and alternatives, and track inventory availability of parts alongside real-time pricing and lead times.
