Silicon Labs today announced a Works With 2021 panel discussing the global semiconductor shortage featuring panelists from the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA), Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE, Inc.), Arrow Electronics and Silicon Labs. The panel "When Your Chips Are Down" will be moderated by EETimes and will explore the dynamics that led to the current semiconductor shortage, the importance of supply chain visibility and the strategies to mitigate future disruption.

"The chip shortage has shined a spotlight on the critical role semiconductors play across the global economy," said Matt Johnson, President, Silicon Labs. "At Works With 2021, Silicon Labs is assembling diverse perspectives from across the industry to discuss the path forward. The IoT market continues to adapt and thrive amidst a historic supply shortage. The industry needs to navigate the headwinds together and apply fresh thinking to the supply chain."

Silicon Labs said that semiconductor shortages have affected countless industries and brought semiconductors to the forefront of global policy conversations. In the process of dealing with such shortages, understanding the causes is more important than ever to mitigate future supply chain disruption.

The discussion will offer fresh insight from manufacturing, distribution and IC design organizations currently operating in the current environment and discuss novel approaches companies are taking to sustain product development and meet customer needs.

The Works With 2021 panel will be held on Wednesday, September 15th, CDT, at 11:00 AM. To register, please click here.
