My boss asked me to find something on the Analog Devices web site that lists projected life cycle estimates for the Blackfin Processor line.
I have recommended the BF526 for a new design of our flagship product and having this information would be useful to aleviate some concerns. They have in the past, designed a system around an embedded board that was discontinued just a couple years after they starting shipping the system. Our products target the maritime industry and they like to know there will be spares well into the future.
Is there some document or web page that makes projections of how long each processor will be in production?
They would like to see 10 years or longer.
