Chips in Stock to Last the Next Two Years
Asygn, a world’s first provider of battery-less UHF RFID sensing chips plans the first volume production of its sensing chips in 2022. With reserves of chips in warehouses, Asygn remains unaffected by the global chip shortage and estimates smooth production for the next two years.
Assembly and Pre-Production in 2021
In 2021, the focus at Asygn was placed on establishing customer partnerships and the assembly and pre-production planning of projects with customers. “2021 and the beginning of 2022 has been a pretty dynamic time for us. We are seeing a lot of traction in the market, especially in 2021, and we have secured many key projects with our customers. We’ve also started lots of prototype sampling last year, along with a few proof of concepts in cooperation with several of our partners,” says Frederic Maricourt, Sales Director at Asygn.
Projects include the monitoring of temperature and humidity of electrical cabinets, in concrete at construction zones, monitoring the temperature, humidity and lighting of plants in agriculture, and the monitoring of the temperature and strain on the blades of an electric hydro turbine.
Millions of Units in Stock
By the end of 2022, Asygn will be involved with the massive production of its chips in cooperation with its customers. This is made possible with Asygn’s large reserve of chips.
“We remain unaffected by the global chip shortage because 2021 was more about pre-production planning and less about volume production. This allowed us to reserve our chips. Now, we have millions of units in stock in our warehouses which we can use to cover production in 2022 without any problems. We are today negotiating very large chip allocation to our Foundry so as to address the large demand for the next two years.” explains Frederic Maricourt.
