Eric speaks with David Loftus, President and CEO of ECIA, on the very challenging topic of NCNR (non-cancellable, non-returnable) agreements between component manufacturers/distributors and their customers.

This very thorough discussion provides much-needed clarity and context for the reason for these agreements and how they actually benefit customers.

Part One covers the definition and reasons for NCNR terms, what type of part is likely to have NCNR terms, and much more.

Part Two of the interview provides an update on trends in the current component supply chain environment.
