MCF8316A: Can TI program this part with our config file?

Part Number: MCF8316A
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: , MCT8316AEVM

Hi,

3 questions:

1) Can TI program the MCF8316A part with our config file and then send us programmed chips so we can populate our pcb.

2) Is the MCF8316AEVM obsolete already? I can't find stock anywhere. This is what we used to program our chips and we have one left. if we burn it, we are in a bad situation.

3) I believe it is the micro controller on the 8316aevm that is dead on my board. Do you have extras I can repair my board with? I'll double check to make sure its the micro if this is possible.

Thank you.

  • Hey Peter,

    Thank you for your question. I have assigned the thread to a team member who will provide feedback.

    Best,

    Unfortunately, we currently do not support shipping chips with customized EEPROM register values. 

    2) Is the MCF8316AEVM obsolete already? I can't find stock anywhere. This is what we used to program our chips and we have one left. if we burn it, we are in a bad situation.

     You can use MCT8316AEVM and MCF8316A GUI to program MCF8316A IC on your PCB. The I2C communication schematic is same for MCF8316AEVM and MCT8316AEVM.
