During the month of October 2010, lead times for capacitors and inductors increased, while the time it takes for resistors to reach the customer decreased (Graph 1.2). Lead-times for capacitors increased by 1.63% month-to-month in October; while lead-times for inductors increased by a notable 5.2% during the same 30 day time period. However, lead-times for resistors declined by a slight 0.6%, marking the first time in 2010 that any of the core passive component product groupings showed a slowdown.
