Is There a Passive Component Shortage?

Passive components include resistors, inductors, capacitors and transformers. They are among the most abundant electronic components in the world, but demand could start to outstrip supply this year in some industries. To help you grasp the exponential growth of the passive component market, the market was valued at USD 30.98 billion in 2020 and is […]

MLCC supply is beginning to tighten?

Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are used in many electronics from smartphone screens to laser guidance systems. There was a prolonged lull in demand for MLCCs stretching from 2019 through to 2020, however supply is now tightening and lead times for new components are extending. This has caused some concern with those who use MLCCs to […]

Chipageddon is upon us

Semiconductors go unseen yet they are at the heart of all our electronics. When supplies run short manufacturing lines slow down and the availability of products is affected. Last year had several examples, some of which may have affected you. AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU was released in December but got nowhere close to […]

New construction of the smallest microchips using graphene nano-origami

Material science and clever engineering has cut the space between components on microchips to nanometres. This has led to significant performance benefits because more components can fit on the chip. However, there is a limit to how small things can go with current chip design. 7nm is as small as chips will go from here […]
