Regarding MSP430f5232 availability

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP430F5232

In my new project I selected a controller from Ti.com, it's number MSP430F5232. The problem is when I checked for it's availability, the availability of this controller is very low. I just want to know that, is this controller obsolete? and can I use this controller for my new designing?. someone let me know please.

  • If this device were obsolete, the web site would say so. If it were about to be obsoleted, the web site would say "not recommended for new designs".

    Apparently, it's just that the Supply & Demand Fairy does not like this chip.

    I see no strong reason not to use this chip. But if you want to lower the risk of it being obsoleted ten years down the road, choose a more popular one.
