Hi, is there a suggested replacement for the HMC995LP5GE? When is the obsolescence date?
I discussed your questions with the Marketing Manager and can offer the following response:
Though the HMC995LP5GE is LTB (Last Time Buy), there are at least 100k units in stock with the distributor and uncommitted to any particular customer(s). The distributor's website shows 03/07/2017 as the LTB date (link below), but you may want to ask them for confirmation: HMC995LP5GE Analog Devices Inc. | RF/IF and RFID | DigiKey
If that quantity of available parts and the time line of our LTB program fit your program, then using the original part could be a good option for you.
The closest available replacement is the HMC952ALP5GE, which is a 2 W, 9-14 GHz part in the same package.
