Your Partner for Hard to Find Microcontroller and Processor Components
Microcontrollers (MCUs) are integrated circuits used to automate and control devices. A microcontroller system consists of at least one CPU, memory and I/O. They are an indispensable part of today’s technological world and most modern devices contain them – washing machines, telephones, trolleys, robotic lawnmowers, remote controls, and more.
A processor is most often referred to as a microprocessor. They are different from a microcontroller as they focus on performance rather than application. They tend to have fewer peripherals and often have internal functionality that provides acceleration for their particular algorithms. This may include internal memory cache, complex data and instruction busing, complex internal instruction units (pipelines), arithmetic instruction units (ALUs) and supervisor circuits. Modern microprocessors can contain hardware accelerators for particular algorithms or graphics processing.
VRG Components can source any electronic parts that are hard to find – in short supply (allocations), end of life, obsolete or have long lead times – especially microcontrollers and processors. We do this by leveraging our extensive network of carefully vetted, reliable suppliers to provide you with the right components to meet your needs.
Our mission is to supply hard to find, high quality electronic components to maximize our customer’s production processes. With the ability to source components from more than 500 leading manufacturers we can secure the microcontrollers and processors required for your project.
