On February 7, according to a report by Jimicr.com, the main control chip, IPC SoC, memory chip, WiFi chip and other core components used by security camera manufacturers are out of stock, the main reason is that the chip core material wafer production tension caused by the semiconductor industry out of stock.
Today, the global "lack of core" situation continues, from the automotive field to the mobile phone, camera and other industries have been affected to varying degrees.
It is reported that the security camera is also facing the same problem, the main control chip, memory chip, WiFi chip, IPCSOC and other core components needed by the camera are currently facing the situation of out of stock.
In this regard, chip manufacturers have adjusted the chip prices, in which memory chip and master chip, as the two types of chips with the most serious shortage in the market, have increased their prices by 20%-30% and 10-%-15% respectively.
In addition, other chips are about 30 to 40 percent price increases.
Due to the current chip a goods difficult to find, led to part of the chip factory supply system of small and medium-sized terminal security enterprises pressure doubled, some enterprises because of the chip can not get, or even has been in a semi-holiday state.
Concerns about the lack of chip capacity began in December 2020, when a shortage of chips caused Volkswagen to temporarily halt production.
Today, chip shortages are affecting the production of a wide range of hardware products, from cars, computers and servers to every charger and even Bluetooth headsets.
Due to the outbreak and prevalence of the new coronavirus, the household economy is rising day by day, and the sales of many digital products have increased significantly.
The supply of fab-based power components, power management ICs, image sensors, fingerprint identification chips and display drive ICs has become tight.
Therefore, it is difficult for the security lens chip based on the core material of wafer to continue to power the industry.
Industry analysts believe that the tight chip situation may continue to spread in 2021, it is difficult to get relief in the short term.
