Chip shortage hitting RasPi compute modules

<< < (3/3)

TimFox:
Chaos theory started out as a branch of non-linear oscillation theory.

Only a matter of time until a futures market evolves.  Instead of ordering parts from DigiMouse, you'll have to buy calls for October STM32H747XIH6.  |O

And God help anybody who gets stuck with actual parts on the shelf.  You'll be laughed out of town, like the trader who accidentally ordered a tanker of crude oil to be delivered to the financial district.

TimFox:
The price of crude oil went negative last April, due to a shortage of storage capacity at the ports (Covid again).  Tankers stayed away to hold the product until storage and prices became rational.
