The chip crisis continues, Apple will produce fewer iPhones, Hyundai wants to make chips itself

We have been struggling with a shortage of various chips for quite some time. Here at SHW we encounter mainly a lack of graphics cards, however, the problems are far-reaching and chips are missing in virtually all industries. Parts for cameras, phones, cars and more are missing. It even goes so far as the carmaker Hyundai she wants to make the chip herself. Like almost all automakers, it was forced to suspend production in some of its factories because important electronic components were missing. In order not to do so in the future, she intends to design the chips herself, but a more pressing problem is their production (usually cheap older chips that “do not want” to be produced).

Here, the company’s statements are somewhat vague, because they talk about developments, which is not the fundamental problem of today. Hyundai is aware that its own development will require time and large investments, the problem is also that it does not have much experience in designing the chips themselves. On the other hand, there is the possibility that it will no longer be dependent on standard chip suppliers, which may be a competitive advantage and it is expected that more car manufacturers will embark on the development of car chips, although for many of them it will be a big problem and hardship. in unexplored areas.

Apple Store

He also suffers from a lack of chips Tesla, which postponed all the news until 2023. Affected companies even include Apple. It has a long-standing privileged position at TSMC, being the first to have the latest production processes and also reaching only a 3% increase in price, while other companies in some cases reached up to 20%, however, it did not avoid a shortage of chips. Each iPhone has many of these, which also led to the fact that it was forced to reduce its production estimate from 90 million iPhones 13 for this year by 10 million down. In this case, it concerns chips from Broadcom and Texas Instruments. But Broadcom has its chips manufactured by TSMC, for example, so while there is no bigger problem with Apple chips from TSMC, it is already a problem with Broadcom chips for Apple from TSMC.
