Learn how companies in the automation space are mitigating the impact of semiconductor chip shortages.

From machine vision and robotics to automobiles and televisions, almost every system and device requires semiconductor chips, but recent worldwide events and political strains have caused global supply chain disruptions in this area.

Companies in the automation space have tried to mitigate the direct and short-term impact of semiconductor chip shortages by sourcing alternative components, purchasing more than they normally would, and being flexible, patient, and improvisational.

Systems integrators are seeing increasing scarcity of system-building materials, and in the machine vision market, the shortage will slow things down in terms of implementation.

In a recent A3 article, TECH B2B account executive Jimmy Carroll caught up with representatives from the global automation community to discuss how supply chain disruptions are impacting the industry. The article addresses how the shortage has affected component deliveries, how companies are reacting, and when the shortage might end.
