Chip shortage: Reasons, repercussions and impact on EVs
Once in a while, we are presented with an eye-opener. Or, maybe everything we are presented with are eye-openers, but we miss a majority of them. Either way, the ongoing global chip shortage surely offers certain valuable lessons for us. The extent to which we depend on technologies is certainly not one of them; we knew that beforehand. But the extent to which our existing technologies depend on semiconductor technology is revealed herewith; and the woes in its manufacturing and supply chain. We have been too dependent on silicon-based tech for so long that maybe this is a wake-up call to seek alternatives. In any case, here is the tale of chip shortage. From reasons, through repercussions to the impact on EVs.
