Chip shortage has a huge impact on all levels of the electronics industry. Lack of key components disrupts big enterprises with high volume production and startups building their first series of prototypes as well.
Byome, a Hungarian IoT startup providing solutions to agriculture. partnered with Custom Chip Solutions (CCS) to source required parts for its prototype products. As part of its supply chain management service, CCS used its semiconductor supply chain expertise and delivered the required volumes. The delivery included critical parts like the microcontroller and the NB-IoT modem for communication.
Sourcing of the initial volumes means the first step in cooperation between CCS and Byome to establish a secure supply chain for future product releases. Involvement of CCS at an early stage of the product lifecycle, ideally already at the design stage, ensures that the final product will be built with chips best suited for the product and the required supply chain will be secure and reliable.
