Re: Intel: Chip Shortage For Years

I work in the amp repair industry and this year, we are seeing backorders of 39 weeks for common transistor types (normally 20-30K pieces in stock).

My capacitor custom builder has difficulty sourcing some of the raw materials.

Lead times on everything have gone up.

The scary thing is, if China takes Taiwan they way they took Hong Kong, we will have no chips until we build domestic plants. It takes years to bring a fab online. Expect no relief in sight.
