White Paper: Mitigate Chip Shortage Risks by Taking Advantage of Software Containers

The COVID-19 pandemic, trade restrictions, and unprecedented market demand due to the fast digitalization caused huge production bottlenecks in the semiconductor industry.

As a result, entire industries struggle to acquire the crucial chip parts that are (often) single-sourced to build specific devices, which results in huge production delays and ultimately, loss in revenues and market shares.

Device manufacturers are experiencing a growing need to diversify procurement risks to continue serving customers around the world and keep a predictable revenue. It implies to inject flexibility and agility into the software development process to order to easily switch electronic components, where and when they can be sourced.

By downloading this white paper, learn how mature software containers such as MICROEJ VEE support chips double sourcing policies to keep the production running and considerably reduce financial risks.
