TAIPEI -- The crunch in the global chip supply chain has spread to makers of industrial computers after Advantech, the world's largest maker of the devices, said its revenues would be held back by a shortage of components.

The Taiwanese company said revenue in the June quarter would be affected by 5-10% at a time when it is otherwise enjoying its strongest ever demand on the back of global economic recovery.
