A global shortage of chips for mid-end consumer products is starting to ease and will be much better come the second half of the year, a senior executive at Taiwan's Acer Inc, the world's No. 5 PC vendor by shipments, said on Tuesday. Originally concentrated in the auto industry, the shortage has now spread to a range of other consumer electronics, including smartphones, refrigerators and microwaves. Andrew Hou, Acer's president for Pan-Asia Pacific Operations, told reporters in Taipei that since the problem first became apparent in the fourth quarter of last year, the supply chain has "jumped into action" as suppliers worked to address the situation.
Qualcomm Inc is ramping up its effort to put 5G mobile phones within reach of billions of people and backing new connected laptops aimed at the growing number of people working at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "It will deliver on the promise of making 5G accessible to all smartphone users," Qualcomm's president, Cristiano Amon, said in an opening video address to the IFA consumer technology fair in Berlin.
