What does it exactly mean? Are you going to give up to support EZSDK and PSP for dm8148?
Firstly, we will continue to update & make releases of DM8148 EZSDK to ensure the major bugs are addressed and we make it GA ready.
The availability disclaimer is intended to clarify product availablity and intended end application for new designs that we are recommending this part for. If you have a existing design that you are already leveraging DM8148 with - I dont think it applies to you.
Let us know if you have further questions.
translation: if you're not buying thousands of parts, don't expect any help. This is as good as it gets.
thanks for this clarification.
But I am not sure if it is a good idea to speek of "Availability Disclaimer" - because it does sound in my ears like "be carefully planning products with that chip - it might be no more available in the next time, if not you are the user with large-scale production".
I hope (you see, I am not completely sure concerning your clarification), that all what you and Viet wanted to say is something like: "Please do not await too much support if you are not developing directly based on one of our reference designs or are a large-scale producer."
Now, that latter would be acceptable for me, as it is clear that support produces costs. But it was fine to know if the support still is planned to be continued at least on that level here to be found at the e2e forums.
Last not least:
In a keynote Rich Templeton announced - if I understood him right - that TI wants to concentrate more on industrial electronics and automotive applications than the consumer market with smartphones and -pads.
Now, if that is true, then it was a good idea to think of:
So I remain hopefully that the continuity concerning DM8148 isn't broken...
