Renesas may see USB 3.0 chip shortages after May

Posted on Tuesday, March 22 2011 @ 22:06:29 CET by

DigiTimes reports Renesas may see USB 3.0 chip shortages after May due to the devastating earthquake in Japan earlier this month. Additionally, the site also writes that Renesas will start shipping its third-generation USB 3.0 controller chip in September.
Japan-based chip designer Renesas has recently made clarifications to its downstream motherboard partners about the recent rumors that Renesas is currently seeing USB 3.0 controller chip shortages, and pointed out that the company is seeing shortages for its first-generation uPD720200 chip due to Intel's defective chip incident and the company's second-generation uPD720200A chip is currently enjoying smooth supply; however, due to Japan's power brownout policy, the company may see shortages after May, according to sources from motherboard makers.

After Renesas announced a temporary shutdown of its operations due to the earthquake, the IT market has circulated rumors that Renesas's supply of USB 3.0 chips is already in shortage; however, Renesas has clarified that as the company needs to fulfill the extra orders from motherboard makers in March because they are all set to re-release the fixed 6-series motherboards, in addition to the regular orders for March, the company's capacity is currently unable to fulfill all the demand and it will need to gradually digest the extra orders.
