Diversify Your Supply Chain: A Possible Solution to the Semiconductor Shortage?

Will diversifying your supply chain solve the issues that come with the global semiconductor shortage? Not entirely—but diversifying your supply chain can absolutely help you optimize your supply chain and even secure hard-to-find or obsolete electronic components during the semiconductor shortage. As much as we all hope the supply-demand struggle will come to a swift  […]

An Update on the U.S. Semiconductor Industry

The semiconductor chip shortage that has plagued supply chains beginning in 2020 and have lasted through this year is expected to linger into 2022, and possibly longer, most industry analysts agree. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused shortages across industries ranging from healthcare equipment, to trampolines, to paper, while demand for semiconductor-equipped technologies has only increased.  […]

What is a Gallium Nitride (GaN) Semiconductor?

In order for something to break into the mainstream as a displacement technology, it has to overcome four hurdles: performance; cost; production capacity; and, reliability. Gallium nitride (GaN), a strong semiconductor composed of gallium and nitrogen, is on the rise to replace silicon in the power electronics world with better efficiency, performance and cost. In  […]

What is the Difference between Active and Passive Electronic Components?

They’re quite simply, everywhere. They’re found in pretty much every single device, large and small. From automobiles, airplanes, to small home devices, appliances – and even children’s toys. What are we talking about? Electronic components. You’ve probably heard a lot about electronic components this past year. It’s all the rage as demand is high. In  […]

How Long will the Global Chip Shortage Last?

The ongoing global semiconductor shortage is getting worse at the worst possible time – when consumer demand for electronics and automobiles are at an all time high. Even while semiconductor manufacturers work to increase production, soaring demand for electronic devices will continue to outpace the supply of the chips used to bring them to life.  […]
