Makers of 8x slim-type DVD burners faced with short supply of pick-up heads

Leading makers of 8x slim-type DVD burners in Taiwan indicated that they have suffered from short supply of pick-up heads (PUHs). This is because major international brands of notebook PCs have been largely increasing adoption of such burners in place of slim-type Combo drives and 4x DVD burners, according to the makers. At the same time, global producers of high-power laser diodes (LDs), a key component of the PUH of an 8x slim-type DVD burner, are unable to increase yield rates causing the supply PUHs to fall short of demand, the makers said.
