On Oct. 20, Abracon became aware of a fire at the Asahi Kasei Microsystem (AKM) semiconductor factory in Nobeoka, Miyazaki prefecture, Japan.
Products produced at this factory are used in many Abracon TCXO oscillator products. At this time, there is limited information on the actual effect the fire will have on production and supply. The AKM Group has reported they would increase outsourcing production to meet market demand. The specifics of this outsourcing are currently unknown.
The Abracon team is assessing the effect on the production of Abracon's TCXOs. Below is a list of Abracon, ILSI and MMD product families impacted by the AKM fire.
Abracon will continue to communicate information as it becomes available. Please anticipate some delays in delivery. The Abracon team is currently evaluating the open backlog to understand delivery challenges. The team has placed all these devices on allocation until the supply chain is stabilized. They also suspended accepting new orders for these products until they understand the delivery timeline on new orders.
The Abracon technical team is evaluating potential alternative solutions to assist customers through these challenging times and will communicate these alternative solutions as they become available.
Thank you for your patience.
