I wanted to let you know the Lunar New Year festival in Asia is over, factories have reopened and production has resumed again.
One word of caution, however. There is a widespread shortage of the controller IC components used to build CompactFlash, SD and micro SD cards. USB Flash Drives are also impacted.
While we are still able to produce what you need, we are experiencing some delays in manufacturing occasionally due to scarcity of components, and in some cases prices are also impacted. We expect this shortage to last several months as chip foundry demand has spiked due to heavy demand from the computer and automotive industries.
Please contact me to discuss your product requirements for the next few months. I want to help you plan ahead to ensure you get the product you need when you need it.
This notice also impacts all custom printed USB Drives, and custom labeled CF and SD card projects. While the lead time to do print production is still at 10-14 days, we need to make sure we have the product ready to print on.
Please follow up with me when it is convenient so we can discuss your needs. I’ll make sure we bring in stock to cover you. I look forward to your reply.
