White House Working to Address Semiconductor Shortage Hitting Auto Production

The chip shortage is hitting outside the car industry as well and I wouldnt be surprised if defence related projects are seeing a shortage too although this has not been confirmed.
The semiconductor industry has reached a major pivot point. There are very few companies in the world that make the machines that make the chips. One of these companies is Dutch ASML. These waferstepper producers could become as important as nuclear fule producers like Urenco. Big politics is promising the fourth industrial revolution but as long as all the waferstepper producers in the world can be counted on one hand this is not going to happen.
