It’s that time again where Lantek Corporation would like to update you on how manufacturer lead times are affecting the electronic component industry. We have noticed that a majority of lead times have remained stable with an average of 20.5 weeks.
Fairchild Semiconductor has increased from 17 weeks to 18 weeks after they experienced a pretty consistent reduction in their lead times over the past few months.
On the plus side, ON Semiconductor (28 weeks to 24 weeks), Toshiba (28 weeks to 24 weeks), and ST have reduced their leads times as well from 30 weeks to 24 weeks.
If you are able to plan ahead with your purchasing schedules, we always encourage that you do so to avoid any issues with unpredictable lead times.
