AKM factory fire affects lead times and pricing of IQD’s components
Posted: 12th November 2020
Due to a fire at ASIC supplier Asahi Kasei Microsystem (AKM) supplies of IQD’s TCXOs, OCXOs and Clock Modules are affected. Consequently, this affects the company’s lead times and prices of the products mentioned.
These effects are driven by a global shortage of AKM semiconductor chips, used in a substantial amount of TCXO, OCXO and Clock Module components.
Please find below a list of IQD’s models impacted by the AKM fire.
