Cisco CEO: The global shortage of computer chips will continue for 6 months

Cisco (Cisco) CEO Chuck Robbins said that the global shortage of computer chips will continue for six months.


The businessinsider report pointed out that the COVID-19 epidemic has caused a surge in demand for electronic products, the production capacity of global foundries is tight, and the interruption of the semiconductor supply chain has affected many technology companies. Robbins said: "I think we still need six months to get through the storm."

As demand soars, capacity expansion will be crucial. "The shortage of chips is a big problem, because almost everything is inseparable from semiconductors." Robbins said.

Robbins said: "This has prompted semiconductor suppliers to expand their production capacity. In the next 12 to 18 months, the situation will improve."
