11.Why there is shortage of Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nano (Out of stock)?

  • Current Shortage –

As many of you know, global supply chains are in a state of flux as we (hopefully) emerge from the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. In our own industry, semiconductors are in high demand, and in short supply: the upsurge of demand for electronic products for home working and entertainment during the pandemic has descended into panic buying, as companies try to secure the components that they need to build their products.

At Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nano, we are not immune to this. Our own commercial team, our licensees, and our partners at Sony have done a great job keeping components coming in the door and products going out. But despite significantly increased demand, we’ll only end up making around seven million units in 2021: pretty much exactly what we did in 2020. The result has been a shortage of some products, notably Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nano Zero and the 2GB variant of Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nano 3.

This is all temporary

We’re now expecting our supply chain challenges to continue through much of 2022. These challenges will fall most heavily on our older products, built on 40nm silicon: in practice, anything that isn’t a Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nano 4, Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nano 400, or Compute Module 4. With this in mind, we’re making several changes to help our customers, many of whom are buying Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno Nanos to power their businesses, navigate the next twelve months.
