Resistor Shortage: Sustained shortage of electronic components

Compared to DRAM, NAND Flash, and FPGA, the availability of passive components; such as resistors, MLCC, and antennas, was not of any concern within the electronics industry. These passive components are just basic building blocks within every electronic product providing minimal impact on the complexity of the design. However, the persistent shortage of passive components…

Renesas introduces 1st on-chip flash memory microcontroller with 28nm process technology

Renesas Electronics Corporation announced the sample shipment of the industry’s first on-chip flash memory microcontroller (MCU) using a 28 nanometer (nm) process technology. To contribute to the realization of next-generation green cars and autonomous vehicles with higher efficiency and higher reliability, the RH850/E2x Series MCU incorporates up to six 400 megahertz (MHz) CPU cores, making it the…

From 1th April, The price of the MLCC will increase by 50%

Since the explosion of passive components shortage in the last year, the strength and endurance of its boom have exceeded expectations. MLCC shortage has stepped into the fifth quarter, Yageo’s  stock safety level declined for more than 1 year. Even  Yageo went through inventory adjustment of Chinese  mobile phone factory for three quarters, weak sales of iPhone X, and the traditional electronics’s…

Electronic Components Price Raise Notice in 2017-2018

Electronic Components shortage & Price Raise Notice in 2017-2018

The current electronic component shortage  is expected to last through the end of 2018. Many factors can cause a shortage aside from a demand surge, including supply chain disruptions, obsolescence, mergers and acquisitions, and production capacity. The recent demand surge causing the electronic component shortage has become under greater strain due to the IoT explosion and growth in the…
