General IC Update: Some minor shortages and delays are being experienced

The following parts may be experiencing shortages and delays in the following areas:

  • There continues to be some activity on Tantalum and High CV capacitors, as spot shortages – which are customer or demand driven – remain across some part numbers. However, we do not consider these shortages to be broad-based.

  • We are still experiencing requests for Freescale processors in both the leaded and the lead-free versions – with most of the activity on the higher-end host processors. We are also still seeing steady demand on older technology 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers. These parts have been in use for years, and Freescale has recently removed some debits, which has increased the pricing. Even with the higher pricing, it is anticipated that most customers still will not migrate to the newer technologies.

  • Lead times for Microsemi military diodes appear to be worsening. Product is very difficult to procure, and many customers are experiencing shortages.

  • Times remain long and customers are still facing shortages on TI Op Amps.
