“Though pricing and lead times have stabilized in both the RF and analog
sectors, we are seeing some troubling signs in the mobile DRAM space,
particularly with LPDDR2 parts, where not all configurations and packages are
well supported. In addition, EOL issues in lower-density NAND chips are
putting stress on Flash supply,” said Iuorio. “Avnet shares our broad insight
into technology developments through this monthly Market and Tech Trends
report so that our customers have the information they need to make the most
informed component choices from the very start of their design process. This
