On 15 August 2023, the SX40 was recognised with an Engineering, Science & Technology Emmy – five years after its launch. Adam Callaway, our Technical Solutions Manager, has travelled an epic journey with the SX40, from the 2018 Geneva Motor Show to the most renowned shows of 2023. Adam recalls that there was a massive demand for the SX40 even ahead of its launch, “People were jumping up and down to get hold of it, especially with the XD data distribution unit. The XD is one of the things that makes the SX40 so special – you’ve got a distribution unit that goes along with it, and that means you don’t have to run as many cables. This was game-changing when we launched it and a big thing that people were looking forward to using.”
Brompton Technology continues to go from strength-to-strength, but one area that has been challenging for us throughout 2022 and into 2023 is the supply of semiconductors. The supply chain for semiconductors has been significantly disrupted with a lot of knock-on consequences for all electronics manufacturers, including Brompton. For a period of time the lead times on many essential components was over 52 weeks, making it very hard for manufacturers to respond to changes in demand. There were a variety of causes for this disruption, which were discussed in a blog in February 2022 (https://www.bromptontech.com/what-is-going-on-with-semiconductor-supply/). We have had another chat with Brompton CEO Richard Mead to ask how things are looking now.
