I have a design that uses the ADSP-2191M DSP, and we are moving to the RoHS-compliant version of the device.  Is this device pin-compatible with the previous non-RoHS-compliant one?  I looked at the product page, and it appears as though the package might be different. Because of this, I checked the datasheet and found that the RoHS-compliant product was not detailed in the Ordering Guide, so it looks like they are not pin-compatible with one another.




The product page is confusing and will be updated to show that the packages are the same. All RoHS-compliant versions of ADI's processors are 100% pin-compatible with the original products that were not Pb-free.
