Very long lead times on a lot of products on Digikey
« on: March 26, 2020, 06:16:06 pm »
First it was the pcb manufacturing that was affected by the Corona Virus, now I am noticing that a lot of products that I use that I am trying to restock on is out of stock with months long restock lead time. Other alternative parts are much more expensive.

Anyone else having these same issues?

Well yeah, the factories are shutting for, *checks watch on the pandemic*, a few months probably? :P  Make do with whatever substitutes you can, alternate suppliers, stock, etc.  It's not going to be business as usual.  Just chill out, roll with it, and if applicable, notify customers of delays as needed.  If you're low on cash, relief should be coming.
