Hello Caribbean we are coming!

Covid19 damaged the Semiconductor industry.

The weak demand in 2020 made many silicon companies stop producing and simply sell what they had in stock.

Now that the economy is reviving, they can’t start producing again because the raw materials are also missing. Restarting the industry takes time and in the meantime even basic voltage regulators and digital logic are missing on the market.

The DDR memory prices became x2 times higher. The 7 and 10″ LCDs vanished from the market due to the high demand for tablets for remote learning.

Microcontrollers from ST, NXP, Microchip are with lead times of 45 weeks!

This is why we at Olimex decided to write off 2021 as a year for electronics manufacturing and to move out for the next 45 weeks to Caribbean beaches!

Looking forward to see you again in 2022!
