No short-term fix for shortages, says chip executives

For chip buyers ranging from computer gamers to automakers, there is no short-term fix for shortages that have caused higher prices and production delays, reports Bloomberg.

Nvidia Corp, which makes chips that are the basis of graphics cards selling for thousands of US dollars more than their retail prices, sees some improvement in supply in the second half of the year, chief financial officer Colette Kress is reported to have said last week at the JP Morgan Tech/Auto Forum.

Global Foundries DEO, Tom Caulfield, said, “It’s hard to imagine over the next two years a point where we don’t speak about supply issues,” adding, “I don’t see any relief in 2022.”

ON Semiconductor Corp. Chief Executive Officer Hassane El-Khoury told the online audience that demand will continue to outpace supply for the rest of this year.
