Intel Alder Lake was the first mainstream platform with DDR5 memory support and sales have been going on for a while. As we’ve mentioned many times before, there are severe stock shortages due to manufacturing issues in certain components such as PMICs and voltage regulator modules (VRMs). This week Micron confirmed everything and said supply issues in modules are slowing production.

Micron CEO Sanjay Mehrotra said the following at the company’s financial event:

Demand for DDR5 products significantly exceeds supply due to non-memory component shortages that affect memory suppliers’ ability to produce DDR5 modules. We expect these child frequencies to decrease by 2022 and DDR5 shipments to reach significant levels in the second half of the 2022 calendar.

As you know, motherboards were normally responsible for voltage regulation of memory modules and VRM circuits were used with PMICs. With DDR5, both PMICs and VRMs have been moved to modules. At this point, DRAM manufacturers have to purchase PMIC and VRM components separately, making production a little more difficult.

RAM manufacturers currently lack the necessary components to develop DDR5 DIMMs and there are stock issues. Micron is working specifically to solve this problem and strategic agreements are made to secure the procurement process of certain components. Fortunately, by 2022, the process will start to improve and the number of DDR5 memory on the shelves will reach sufficient levels in the second level of the year.
