Supply Chain Challenges
Press Office, VersaLogic Corporation, 08/11/21
Please be advised that there are growing concerns around electronic component availability. These challenges could impact the delivery of products from VersaLogic during 2021.
As has been indicated in VersaLogic’s previous updates, extended lead times and cost increases continue, especially around PCB, Ethernet, and memory components. Due to laminate shortages, PCB lead times have increased from a typical 4-6 weeks to 16-18 weeks plus. Memory component pricing is increasing 200-300%, even on existing confirmed orders. VersaLogic is taking extreme measures to help secure material (and pricing) by taking immediate delivery of material for anticipated future customer demand.
- Intel (among other suppliers) has published lead times as much as 75 weeks for parts that are
widely used in VersaLogic products.
- Missed delivery commitments from suppliers are becoming a common occurrence. In many
cases the missed commitments happen without advanced notice and in close timing to the
committed delivery date.

Planning and communication becomes critical during times of component shortages. Advising VersaLogic of expected product demand well in advance can make a big difference in order turnaround times and hitting desired delivery dates.
VersaLogic’s Embedded Application Consultants are available to discuss your expected product demand in order to ease these challenges.
