Success Story: Major Automobile Manufacturer Revives Production Line with iBuyXS’s Exceptional Service



A leading global automobile manufacturer faced a critical challenge when one of their primary production lines was halted due to a shortage of essential components. The
production of 2,000 vehicles, representing over $100 million in potential revenue, was at risk. The specific part in shortage was the XC7Z020-1CLG400I Xilinx FPGA, a vital Lidar Controller needed for the vehicles’ advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

The Challenge:

In the highly competitive automotive industry, any delay in production can have significant financial consequences and damage a company’s reputation. The manufacturer urgently needed 2,000 pieces of the XC7Z020-1CLG400I Xilinx FPGA, a component not available through their regular supply channels. With the clock ticking, the company was in dire need of a solution that could ensure the timely completion of their production to meet market demand and contractual obligations.

iBuyXS Steps In:

Understanding the critical nature of the situation, iBuyXS, a leading electronic components distributor known for its ability to source hard-to-find parts, was approached to tackle this challenge. iBuyXS leveraged its extensive global network of suppliers and its expertise in the electronic components market to locate the required XC7Z020-1CLG400I Xilinx FPGAs.

The Solution:

The company’s proactive approach, coupled with its robust logistics capabilities, ensured that the parts were delivered directly to the automobile manufacturer’s production facility ahead of the critical deadline.


Thanks to iBuyXS’s efficient and reliable service, the automobile manufacturer was able to resume production without further delay, ensuring that the 2,000 vehicles were completed on time. This swift action not only preserved over $100 million in revenue but also reinforced the manufacturer’s reputation for reliability and responsiveness in the face of supply chain challenges
