Part Number: TCA5013


On one hand, I just want to ask if the SAM modules allow hot swapping.

On the other, I am aware that there are a few years since this IC is active, is there any estimation on where the chip will be deprecated?

Thanks, bests,


  • yes, it's allowed for hot swapping, not sure what's your 2nd question.

    Hi Mr. Zhou,

    Thanks for the answer. Very usefull.

    Regarding the second one, what I want is to implement TCA5013 on pay machines and manufacturing them for many years, so I am trying to avoid ICs that will be obsolete in a near future. That's the reason I want to know if TCA5013 can be (or not) a good candidate for the designs.

    Thanks! Bests,
