Alternatives to wifi module under chip shortage time
According to reports, 2021 will be the most serious year for chip shortages in 30 years. With the chip factory fires, power outages, the wave of shortages is unprecedented in history. The wifi module is also deeply affected. Not only has the price increased sharply, but it is also out of stock. As a result, the production of network cameras (IPC), set-top boxes and some commercial display and advertising player manufacturers cannot keep up, and the cost has risen sharply.
In response to the current shortage of chips in some modules that cannot be supplied, Oflycomm has introduced a variety of PIN-PIN modules to facilitate manufacturers to implement alternatives to ensure supply and reduce costs. The following are our modules based on the most lacking AMPAK sdio module at present.
