I just misremebered what the lead times for chip production is, though at least I had a number that was only off by a factor of two...mattmiller wrote:Well you yourself provided the new info on SOC lead times that no-one else had mentioned so its not the same old stuffWe've had complaints that this thread is just regurgitating the same thing over and over again
Its a new real and understandable reason for low production - maybe it would have been good for Foundation to have mentioned it early on as its hardly something that needed to be kept secret - no interaction with Pi3 on that front - I wonder why they didn't?
Dare I suggest it's because they don't want to admit that they completely missed the market demand for the #PiZero and have some deep aversion to admitting errors?
And who are these people that are complaining - are they incapable of ignoring a thread that they are not interested in?
I think lots of other threads are full of useless stuff but I respect that the people involved in it don't do I leave them to it
Back near the dawn of history, specifically around August 2012, one of the two manufacturing licensees failed to anticipate just how much demand there was even for those early Pis. At the time, the lead time for them to get nore SoCs was mentioned, so that number *has* been mentioned before on these Forums.
