We encourage you to upload your Spec Sheets with the ISL Inquiry Form, to help us further understand your application and component requirements.
  2. Our engineers will work closely with you, as well as with your procurement and engineering departments, to help determine the best solution to your problem.
  3. We will then work with our teams of engineers at our various factories to help design and manufacture your component solution.
  4. Once the initial design is agreed upon, ISL will manufacture prototypes for your approval.
  5. Next, the component solution will go into full production and we will ship the goods to you as per your production schedule.

7. Why does ISL Products not have an online catalog?

While many companies are in the business of selling electronic components, ISL Products is in the business of selling solutions. We refer to our Case Studies page as our catalog of successful solutions. You may email us at, to request additional information via email.

8. Does ISL Products have product on the shelf?

ISL DOES NOT stock standard product like a distributor. Most of our products are built-to-order (BTO). We will stock and release products against a customer’s blanket purchase order though.

9. How do I submit an inquiry to ISL Products?

There are a few ways to submit your inquiry. We have a great new tool to help clarify your needs, our “ISL Inquiry Form”; it can be found here or at the top right-hand corner of the webpage. This form allows you to succinctly outline your specific needs, informs us about your project, and enables us to expedite a viable response in a timely manner. To facilitate your project, please email or call one of our in-house sales engineers: / 1.888.904.9054.

10. What is the difference between ISL Products & a traditional parts distributor?

ISL Products delivers value-added components.

We can take standard off-the-shelf components and manufacture them to your specific needs, providing the most productive component for your application.
