Fire at AKM
In October 2020, a factory belonging to AKM suffered a major fire. Fortunately, no human casualties were reported, but the factory was seriously damaged and the production tools were destroyed, which means that production had to be stopped completely.
AKM is a major supplier of ASICs for oscillators and TCXOs, so this will have a long-term impact on the delivery and availability of these. At this stage, it is unclear if and when AKM can restart operations, but it is expected to endure at least most of 2021. As AKM delivered circuits to 80-90% of the world's TCXOs, the market has been drained of similar products.
For many constructions there are solutions available and we are happy to assist in verifying your actual needs and suggest possible alternative solutions.
Long delivery times
Several suppliers suffer from problems delivering components at the desired rate. In several ways, this is caused by the Covid 19 pandemic in the world. Restrictions on mobility mean that workers cannot get to the factories to the desired extent, which lowers the pace of production. Raw materials can also not be provided for the same reason. Once the products are manufactured, there are fewer air transports available and when passenger flights don’t have the same frequency, goods must be sent by pure cargo flights. This means that shipping costs have risen sharply in addition to the reduced regularity.
We advise all customers to place orders well in advance and to provide us with forecasts for as long as possible.
Utbrottet av det nya coronaviruset med sjukdomen COVID-19 ger en del utmaningar för elektronikbranschen. Några leverantörer till KVE är drabbade av nedstängningar av myndigheter i olika länder. Det är svårt att ge generella uttalanden, men vi gör vad vi kan för att hålla våra kunder informerade.
