After the crisis is over production processes of consumer goods are going up again, this leaded to a high demand for electronic parts. I was told even average parts have to be ordered 8-12 weeks before production starts.
This may lead to some delays in the production of the beta tester boards, so please be patient if Nemo beta tester program will be delayed.

With a growing economy, one of the subjects at EDS was making sure there will be sufficient supply to meet expanding demand.
