The company supplies original designed and manufactured (ODM) electronic components (ODM Components), with its product offerings ranging from discrete semiconductors through small electronic devices. The company also offers value-added engineering and turn-key services, focusing on providing contract electronic manufacturers (CEM’s) and original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) with ODM services for their multi-year turn-key projects (ODM Projects). As of December 31, 2014, the company’s inventory consisted of approximately 12,000 different products manufactured by 100 different suppliers. In 2014, the company offered approximately 26 different ODM Projects that are manufactured to specifications developed as a result of its ODM services. The company’s Taiwan and China locations provide support for inventory sourcing, purchases and coordinating the manufacture of its ODM Components and ODM Projects. The company’s China location also serves as the engineering center responsible for making component datasheets and test specifications, arranging pre-production and mass production at its manufacturer partners, preparing samples, monitoring the quality of shipments, performing failure analysis reports, and designing circuits with partners for ODM projects. Products Electronic Components – Discrete The company markets various discrete semiconductors, including rectifiers (or power diodes), diodes, transistors, optoelectronic devices and passive components, to other electronic distributors, contract electronic manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers, who incorporate them in their products. As of December 31, 2014, its inventory consisted of approximately 12,000 different products manufactured by 100 different suppliers. In 2014, the company purchased electronic component products from approximately 40 different suppliers, including Everlight Electronics Co, Ltd.; Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co.; Vishay Americas Inc.; and Zowie Technology Corporation. Discrete semiconductors are categorized based on various factors, including handling capacity, construction, packaging, fabrication and function. The products the company sells include the following: Rectifiers: Rectifiers are utilized in power supply and other high power applications to convert alternating to direct current. The company sells rectifiers, including silicon rectifiers, fast efficient rectifiers, Schottky rectifiers, glass passivated rectifiers, fast efficient glass passivated rectifiers, silicon bridge rectifiers, fast recovery, glass passivated bridge rectifiers and controlled avalanche bridge rectifiers. Diodes: Diodes are two-lead semiconductors that only allow electric to flow in one direction. They are used in various electronic applications, including signal processing and direction of current. Diodes sold by the company include switching diodes, varistors, germanium diodes and zener diodes. Transistors: Transistors are used in, among other applications, the processing or amplification of electric and electronic signals, including data, television, sound and power. The company sells various types of transistors, including small signal transistors, power transistors and power MOSFETS. Optoelectronic Devices: Optoelectronic devices are solid state products which provide light displays (such as LEDs), optical links and fiber-optic signal coupling. Applications vary from digital displays on consumer video equipment to fiber optic transmission of computer signals to pattern sensing for regulation, such as those found in automobile cruise controls. Passive Components: Passive components are a type of electronic component manufactured with non-semiconductor materials. Passive components such as resistors, capacitors and inductors are used in electronic circuitry but they do not provide amplification. ODM Projects The company’s ODM Projects are custom made and are marketed in specific industries such as: wild animal feeders, timers for DC motor, public street light controllers, LED modules for swimming pools and water fountain lights, LED headlamps for vacuum cleaners, battery testers, universal remote control devices and battery chargers. Sales and Marketing The company has centralized its sales order processing and customer service department into its headquarters at Valencia, California. The company’s inside sales and customer service departments are divided into regional sales territories throughout North America. The company has sales channels into Asia through its branch offices in Shanghai, China and Taipei, Taiwan. Suppliers In 2014, the company purchased components from approximately 40 different suppliers, including Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co.; Everlight Electronics Co, Ltd.; Vishay Americas Inc.; and Zowie Technology Corporation. Customers The company markets its products to distributors, CEMs and OEMs, and its ODM Services to CEMs and OEMs. During the year 2014, the company distributed its products to approximately 400 customers. History Taitron Components Incorporated was incorporated in California, and was originally founded in 1989.
