Computer chip makers seek U.S. permission to work during pandemic

A group representing the major semiconductor companies in the United States said on Wednesday that it partnered with federal officials to make it clear to state and local officials that there are lockdowns that chip companies are essential companies to continue their operations. In a blog post, the Semiconductor Industry Association, which represents chipmakers with major U.S. factories such as Intel Corp and Micron Technology Inc, said it partnered with the United States Department of Homeland Security to provide guidance sent to state and local officials last week. refine.

That guide named chipmakers as an essential company because of their role in supporting information technology, which has become crucial because millions of Americans work from home. John Neuffer, the group’s president, said in a blog post that chips also play a critical role in medical equipment, power grids, and other necessary infrastructure. “Ensuring the continuity of semiconductor and related supply chains is necessary to support the even wider range of services that will be digitized in the coming weeks and months,” he wrote. “Since the semiconductor supply chain is highly globalized, semiconductor shortages caused by operational constraints in one region cannot easily be compensated for by production in other regions.”

To date, major chip companies in the United States have not reported any manufacturing interruptions. Last week, Intel CEO Bob Swan said in a letter to customers that his factories, including locations in California, Oregon, New Mexico and Arizona, “achieved on-time delivery of more than 90% today.” Sanjay Mehrotra, chief executive of memory chip manufacturer Micron, which has plants in Utah, Idaho and Virginia, also said in a letter last week that the company “handled materials and our supply chain carefully to preserve our manufacturing capabilities and production.”
