It's really annoying. Our Altera FPGA's also have half a year lead time. 
Someone at top level at the die factories should be fired for bad planning! 
I wonder why it takes so long to reboot the factories they shut during the 
critical times. Did they tear them down?

>I asume you or your enterprise too...

We have to buy the MCU's at the spot marked, wich means currently an 
additional $30-40 extra each (normal price ~$7)... and prices are increasing 
as overstock gets harder to find :(
