Embedded Executive: Kirk Wehby, COO, Smith
June 29, 2022
For starters, Smith is the largest electronics distributer that I have never heard of. They are a multi-billion-dollar company. One of the strengths of the company is ensuring that its products are real (as opposed to counterfeits).
That’s harder than it sounds, but vital to a developer. As we know, fake parts likely don’t provide the same operating characteristics as real parts. To understand how Smith tackles this process, I spoke to the company’s COO, Kirk Wehby in this week’s Embedded Executives podcast.
