Microchips are essential to a lot of a vehicle’s key functions, such as engine control, transmission, infotainment systems, and much more.

In the last half of 2020 and now in 2021, automobile sales recovered considerably quickly, faster than automakers expected. Suddenly, they were having difficulties to fulfill demand.
