Leadtime trends

The leadtimes for capacitors are stabilising and capacitor manufacturers are now quoting leadtimes out to 2020.

Charcroft is working with individual customers to suggest alternatives with shorter leadtimes or discussing a change of technology, such as replacing 10 ceramic capacitors with a single polymer capacitor.
