CIP Compliance Module

CIP Compliance Module

Solve supply chain problems before they happen.

Supply Chain Driven Part Selection

The cost of an electronic product is largely determined by the components chosen during the design phase. The OrCAD CIP Compliance Module provides vital component supply chain data typically not available to engineering, enabling designers to make intelligent and cost effective component decisions upfront. Shorten your time to market and reduce risks with a supply chain driven approach to part selection.



Built Directly into OrCAD

Access crucial component selection criteria directly on design engineer’s desktops.

Powered by SiliconExpert

Search and cross-reference over 300+ million parts by partial part number or description.

Compliance Driven Design

Easily identify non-compliant components with environmental data including REACH & RoHS 

Deep Component Insights

Information on component lifecycle status, multi-sourcing, available inventory, and predicted years to end of life data using advanced lifecycle algorithms.

Mitigate Risk

Identify which components are at risk early on in the design phase avoiding time consuming and costly redesign cycles.

Zero Touch BOM

Ensure your Bill of Materials (BOM) only includes parts that are orderable and meet the regulatory, environmental, and lifecycle requirements of your products.

"Our Component Engineers were able to use the tool to find a replacement component with improved characteristics, a smaller package, lower cost, a longer lifecycle and readily available stock. This search could have potentially spanned one of multiple weeks through phone conversations, publication reviews and internet searches. But because of SiliconExpert's tools, we were able to complete this step in a significantly shorter time span."
