COVID Killed Supply Chain Stability
COVID-19 killed semiconductor supply chain stability. If you’re wondering why you are sitting at your computer furiously commenting on Discord “wen hotspot ship” – the answer you are looking for is global semiconductor supply chain stability (or lack thereof).
Nearly all hotspot manufacturers postponed ship-dates this spring. One Helium hotspot manufacturer, Nebra, paused new pre-orders for its two models. Bobcat and Rak continue to ship units.
