Demand for semiconductor chips rose 17 per cent from 2019 to 2021,
and supply chains are still recovering from the effects of the pandemic.
In addition to overcoming these availability issues, obsolescence can
make sourcing integrated circuit (IC) components even more challenging. Richard Mount, Director of Sales at ASIC design
and supply company Swindon Silicon Systems, explains how custom ICs can
help to minimise the threat of obsolescence when used in smart sensors.
