Is ADSP-21065L near the EOL?

Started by Jose Fuentes July 7, 2008
It seems that Digikey is going to stop selling ADSP-21065 development kit ADDS-21065L-EZLITE. When I check the availability of this item this legend is shown: "Part will become a non-stocking item when stock is depleted; minimums will apply"
It sounds like that kit is not being manufactured. Does any of know if ADSP-21065L is near the EOL?

Regards

Jose

I don't know the status of the 21065L EZ KIT. I doubt very much that the
ADSP-21065L is EOL. ADI has been very good at keeping older parts in
their line. You can still buy the ADSP-2101. This was an old part when I
first started using ADI DSPs in 1991.

The 21065L is not a good choice for new design. EZ-Kits are usually
aimed at new applications, so it would not surprise me to see DigiKey or
ADI drop the kit.

I suggest that you consider the ADSP-21371 (or possibly 21375 if cost
driven). These parts are substantially better parts and available for
about the same cost. The lowest cost SHARC is the ADSP-21261. It is also
much better in most respects to the 21065L.

If you are concerned with fabrication issues, especially BGA, you may
want to check out our dspblok and dspstak boards. Our most popular
boards for new design are ADSP-21369 based.
