AD Support for the ADSP 210XX line of DSPs

Started by Steve Holle November 20, 2003
Just for general information, I found out today that AD is no longer
offering telephone support for any of the ADSP 210XX line of DSPs. 
The only way to get support is via email.  You might want to consider
this when choosing a DSP for your next project.

Let the buyer beware.

I haven't heard this but consider that the 2102x is extremely old and the 2106x are 1st generation Sharcs. The Sharc is now in its 3rd generation (ADSP-21262 is the first). I would suggest that even though most of these parts are readily available (which is nice for legacy designs), you shouldn't be using these parts for new designs. Email tech support is probably reasonable in this case since the question will be assigned to someone who might be more familiar with the older parts. -- Al Clark Danville Signal Processing, Inc. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Purveyors of Fine DSP Hardware and other Cool Stuff Available at http://www.danvillesignal.com
