Electronic components – supply problems worsen


The supply of components for the electronics industry is not improving.  Since OSI Electronics 'Snap shot' report last month, its Singapore/Asia teams have reported the shortage of components is...

'...gathering momentum with the likes of NXP, Microchip, On Semi, Infineon, Maxim & Power Integrations pushing out lead-times and increasing pricing.'

“This news increases our concern,” says John Harley, OSI Electronics UK’s Director Business Development UK & EMEA – OSIE UK is based in St Neots.

“It emphasises the benefit of working closely with your CEM partner to mitigate as much as possible the delays and cost increases caused by the ongoing shortages and general market tightening on components.

“We are fortunate to have build capacity and control over our assembly as well as a global supply network through being part of the OSI group, which has a $120m+ budget for purchasing electronic, electrical and mechanical components via our offices around the world.”
