At the end of last year, many car companies around the world “compelled” one after another.
Due to the shortage of chips, they had to shut down and take measures such as reducing production and reducing production to deal with the core shortage crisis.

Even if the prices of processors, graphics cards, and memory in the PC market rose wildly at the beginning of this year, they still couldn’t get the goods.
At the same time, the global “chip shortage” has also caused varying degrees of impact on the mobile phone industry.
A few days ago, at the 2021 Economic Summit of the China Development Forum, Qualcomm CEO Steve Molenkov pointed out that.
The shortage of supply of chips produced with mature technologies is expected to be alleviated in the short term.
Steve Molenkov responded to the problem of related chip shortages, saying that there is indeed a problem of chip shortages around the world, and Qualcomm is also improving, but it will take time.
He pointed out,The supply pressure of some chips produced with mature technology is expected to be relieved as soon as possible, but the situation to be solved is still more complicated for chips produced with advanced technology.
It is worth mentioning that in the face of chip shortages, the incoming Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon has previously told the media.
If you ask him what keeps him awake at night, there is nothing more than the current supply crisis in the semiconductor industry.
The current high demand for chips for technology products has put tremendous pressure on the semiconductor industry, leading to supply chain shortages.
When asked why Qualcomm did not invest in building factories to restore supply capacity, Amon said that most chip companies,
Qualcomm, would not make chips themselves, because it takes one year to one year and a half to build a brand new chip factory , Solving the supply shortage needs to rely on the capacity of existing semiconductor foundries.
