Passive Component Shortages:
As some of you certainly know, there has been a large demand increase and manufacturing constraints on passive electronic components. There are severe allocation measures being taken across the industry. Prices are trending up and lead times have been extended dramatically.
The reality is that constraints on these inexpensive components can hold up the entire build of a system and you do not want that to happen! Therefore we suggest placing blanket orders as soon as possible on these items to get in the que.
Some data on the primary suppliers is provided in the document below.
