Converge General IC Update

We are currently tracking parts that might experience shortages and delays in the following areas:

  • The anticipated uptick in demand for tantalum capacitors due to the expected increases in raw tantalum pricing has been slow to materialize, primarily as a result of general market sluggishness.
  • Spot shortages continue on some Pulse Engineering transformer modules, with the heaviest activity occurring in early September.
  • Shortage activity has increased on Freescale network processors as well as some Vitesse transceivers.
  • Converge has learned that Altera has increased prices 20% across the board.
  • Altera PLDs are currently showing some pockets of shortage activity.
