We have been in production of a medical imager for some time employing CCD TC237B http://www.ti.com/product/tc237 however the part is obsolete and our distributor did not provide us with EOL notification.
We really need an appropriate contact for a brief discussion on potential availability and substitutes for this CCD.
We are in similar but a slightly less desperate situation, we we're given the EOL, and placed our lifetime buy, but it was only partly fullfilled. We have found a replacement part in the CMOSIS CMV300. It has the same optical geometry, but it is far from a drop in replacement. I also talked with someone attempting to put together a large enough order to induce TI to make another run. You can email me at joey at joescan dot com.
