Semiconductor supplier ASML suffers factory fire in Berlin

At this point, the global chip crunch is basically its own meme. It seems like wave after wave, whether it’s limited capacity, employee furloughs, logistical issues, or GPU theft, we seem to have some way to go before we can walk into a main street store and buy a console or a console’s MSRP GPU.

But chip supply is not just a matter of wafer capacity. A semiconductor manufacturing plant requires countless components, tools and machinery, forming a very complex supply chain.Dutch lithography specialist ASML (Advanced Semiconductor Materials Lithography) is a key part of the chain, news from ZDnet A fire broke out at one of ASML’s factories in Berlin.
