Part Number: INA194

Hi Team,

my customer has started a new design with INA194AIDBVTG4, could you please confirm that the device will no be intended to obsolesce for the 5 years ahead?

Thanks and regards,

Shai

  • Hello Shai,

    Thank you for your interest in our INA194.  From what I know, there is no plan to discontinue the INA194.  However, I still need to check with one other person in upper management.  Yet, regardless of whether it will not be obsoleted, I think should read the following FAQ.  This outlines one issue your customer may encounter if they attempt to measure small currents that produce a voltage across the shunt smaller than 20mV.

    Hello Shai,

    In this link is our stance towards discontinuing parts. According to upper management we have great manufacturing support for the INA194 and strong demand.  So this part does not look like it will be discontinued anytime soon.
