TI makes an effort to not obsolete products out of convenience. Convenience means a low running device, poor yields, limited customer adoption or similar items. TI’s obsolescence withdrawal schedule provides a longer lead time than the industry standard. TI allows 12 months for the last order and an additional six months to take final delivery of obsolete items.
In rare circumstances, an accelerated withdrawal schedule may be necessary. In such cases, TI will communicate the last buy and final delivery dates in the end of life (EOL) notice, along with an explanation of the circumstances necessitating the early withdrawal.
