Delivery times for components stable
The semiconductor market is moving - when it comes to delivery times and component prices - only marginally.
"On the procurement market, analog products show stable prices and delivery times of 4-12 weeks. This with the exception of components from ON Semiconductor, where we see lead times of 10-20 weeks," writes EMS provider CCS Group. The discrete, optical and standard logic components have a flat price trend with stable delivery times of 8-16 weeks. The same applies to processors and programmable logic devices with delivery times of 12-20 weeks. The only segment where CCS Group registered a slight increase in delivery times is that of computer-specific DRAM, where current delivery times stand between 12-16 weeks. Delivery times for passive and electromechanical products remain stable. However, prices for some of the materials and in certain economic regions are - due to a rather strained supply with raw materials (including conflict materials, rare earth) in some regions - increasing.
