It seems that integrated circuit manufacturers are having trouble getting chips out in the time frames that they once did. We’re not really sure why – it could be that Covid has reduced their ability to produce ICs, or possibly that demand has simply exceeded what they have facilities for. No matter what the reason, we are regularly receiving emails from our supplier saying that lead times have been extended.
With some lead times in the 38 week range, we will not be able to fill some of your orders in the short times that you would like. All that we can say is that you should build those times into your planning, and also keep in mind that we will be closed permanently as of June, 2022. Sorry to have to say this.
Thank you for our patience and understanding. Stay safe.
