As we talked about last week, The global supply shortage that affects everything from consoles to phones to automobiles is attributed to a lack of semiconductors.But, more specifically, some The biggest culprit is shortage small parts The cost is about $1.
such Bloomberg The report states, The global display driver shortage And similar tiny and previously anonymous power management chips These are the two most specific parts of the supply chain. They hinder the global production of almost all computer-equipped products.
The same report also provides information on why We are facing such a shortage, from the rapid repurchase of production orders (the company believes that lock-in will reduce the demand for computer-related products, not more), to some of these components are manufactured using outdated production methods, Even explosive growth. The type and quantity of devices that did not require chips before.
Although we expect that the massive increase in demand will mean the influx of new factories and increased production capacity, the real frustration for those looking for a PS5 or a new car parked somewhere is that the person responsible for manufacturing parts The company, like the display driver, quickly became uninterested in any changes because “the existing production line has been completely depreciated and fine-tuned to achieve near-perfect returns, which means that the basic display driver manufacturing cost is less than $1 , And the manufacturing cost of the higher version is not high. More.”
