  • Yeh, it's not just that product from Atmel. It happens all the time - 9 months lead and the price is never the same as the rep. promised in 10K either...after you get it to production. I have seen this twice with Atmel.
    Microchip PIC on all ranges is amazing at supply. I heard a story of a guy who made a product on a very old PIC16C for controlling the airline food carts. The part was very old and out of all the disties. To avoid him re-doing expensive approvals Microchip pulled the old recipe and the masks and ran him a lifetime supply. Now argue all you want about anything technical - but that's as real as it gets. We use PICs a lot now.

No public wish lists :(
