Analog Discovery Shortage
Everyone around the world is facing the unprecedented challenge of suddenly working and learning at home during a global pandemic. It has been Digilent’s mission from the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis to share the burden with those who have built us up to the company that we are today.
Inevitably, Digilent is being impacted by the prioritization of medical devices in the semiconductor industry plus extended factory shutdowns, creating a parts shortage around the world. This is especially affecting the Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio. We are working closely with our partners, including Analog Devices, to help balance the allocation of parts for Digilent with the increasing demand for medical device components globally. We are doing our best to keep everything in stock, but are facing significant manufacturing uncertainty. In addition, we are experiencing an increase in pricing for critical parts.
For the Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio specifically, we are reserving all remaining stock in 2020 for our academic customers and will be evaluating pricing on a case by case basis due to increasing costs of parts. Academic customers should contact email@example.com; our worldwide distribution network is available to supply our non-academic customers.
Thank you for bearing with us during this difficult time, it is appreciated. The Digilent team is doing everything we can to prevent these issues from impacting your work, and we appreciate your continued contributions to the engineering community.
We have allocated all remaining Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio stock and are no longer able to accept orders at this time. We are doing everything we can to get more Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio but are still experiencing long lead times and a significant increase in cost of parts. Because of this increase, we will be forced to raise the price point of future builds of Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Discovery Studio once we resume taking orders. Another update will be posted to this page as soon as we have the new pricing. At this point we do not have a concrete date when we will have more stock, our best estimate is late fall of this year at the earliest.
