Chip prices have been skyrocketing and there is still no sign of going back to normal. Prices of automotive grade micro-controllers have almost ten-folded, 9-axis motion sensors tripled, CAN transceivers doubled. As a countermeasure, we have raised production batch volume to trade off for a better unit price. However, we still have to raise prices for several products in order to be sustainable. Some kits will be discontinued due to small volumes. We might also be forced to downgrade motion sensor from ICM-20948 to MPU6050 in Freematics ONE+ from next manufacture batch as the former is not only unaffordable but also difficult to source now. We are trying everything possible to keep supply of our products in this ever crazy world.
