 +==== Worldwide shortages ====
 +
 +As you might have heard in the news, there are worldwide shortages of a lot of chips.
 +
 +This has had massive impact on our ability to produce Smoothieboard v1, and to make progress on Smoothieboard v2.
 +
 +We currently have managed to produce boards, and there should be stock for the foreseeable future, but this is a constant fight to stay in stock, and you can expect at *some point*, we'll have shortages again like we had beginning of 2021.
 +
 +The chips are also much more expensive than normal. We were able to get *some* at higher-than-normal-but-not-crazy prices some weeks back, but at the time of this writing (May 2021), the only chips available have 1000%+ price markups: https://www.win-source.net/nxp-lpc1769fbd100.html . If we end up having to produce boards with those new chip prices, we won't be able to keep the prices the same anymore.
 +
 +Hopefully all of this calms down and fixes itself as 2021 progresses. We'll keep you informed.
