We are buying whatever small quantities of PMICs and other switching regulators we can find from grey market sources for huge markups. We can barely source enough to prototype anything. There is huge demand for chips on these older process nodes and no appetite to invest in them.

someones lying their ass off
Chip shortage = record revenue and profits for chip companies and their customers like auto companies. So why will the chip shortage end? Demand > supply, due to brilliant chip shortage marketing and PR 🙇*♂️….and lots of money in the economy right now.

That is excactly what I thought. How many people have been bitching about BMW M pissing off customers in the last year. It's probably like my salesman said: All the people who complain don't buy the M models anyway.

Bingo!
While the haters complain on social media about cars they would never buy (and maybe can't even afford...), the buyers are out there enjoying their M
