 IHS Acquires PCNAlert

Acquisition allows IHS to deliver end-to-end engineering obsolescence management solution

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (August 27, 2007) – IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), a global provider of critical technical information, decision-support tools and related services, announced today it has acquired the assets of PCNAlert from SupplyEdge, Inc., of Pasadena, Calif., for $10 million in an all-cash transaction. PCNAlert delivers leading component event management solutions, including product change notifications (PCNs) and end-of-life (EOL) notifications for the electronic components industry.

“The acquisition of PCNAlert advances our strategy of expanding our proprietary database of parts information and related decision-support tools,” said Jeffrey R. Tarr, President and Chief Operating Officer, Engineering Segment for IHS. “PCNAlert’s premier event management offerings will be integrated with our growing electronic components business providing IHS a clear differentiator in the marketplace with existing and new customers. The acquisition will help accelerate our market penetration by leveraging existing IHS sales channels globally and incorporating PCNAlert as an add-on to our electronic components product line.”

Component manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and electronic manufacturing services (EMS) need to identify and solve potential part obsolescence issues early in their design, procurement, production, quality control, and service and repair processes. The integration of PCNAlert into the IHS proprietary electronic components database uniquely positions IHS to deliver an end-to-end engineering obsolescence management solution. As a result, customers’ engineering process improvements can have a direct positive impact on their key business initiatives in the electronics industry, including risk mitigation, environmental regulation compliance, accelerated time to market, product lifecycle management, optimized strategic sourcing, and effective electronics inventory and supply chain management.

Cliff Frescura, CEO of PCNAlert, said: “The collective power of IHS expertise and its current Parts Solutions offerings with PCNAlert enable customers to make component selection and management decisions more rapidly and with greater confidence, which is critically important in a highly competitive electronic component market environment.”

Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
