Hello ADI team,
Our design team just realized ADRF6820 is "Not Recommended for New Designs"
In your Product lifecycle page you mention
"Not Recommended for New Designs: This designates products ADI does not recommend broadly for new designs."
Could you please provide more information about this statement, in particular what does the "Broadly" term indicates?
What would it be the expected lifetime for this part and when would be reasonably reach the Last Time Buy or Obsolete status
Thanks in advance
The part is not recommended or supported for new designs currently. If you have a design already in place, our marketing team can speak with you about options. Just let me know your situation, but again, we can't offer any tech support from here forward.
Thanks for getting in touch so quickly
Our design is currently in prototyping phase with PBAs arriving in a few weeks
Full production is expected end 2020 with roughly 500 pieces per year
btw we are facing the same issue also for ADRF6720 which is used on the same designs in same quantities
