May I ask experts to clarify of 66AK2H06 part long term status. We are considering new instrument based on that processor, so we'd like to be sure it will be available for another, say, decade.
Next question is about evaluation board. We'd like to assemble a prototype using evaluation boards to decide viability of the idea. There is link to EVM on https://training.ti.com/introducing-the-evmk2h-evaluation-module page, but https://www.ti.com/tool/EVMK2H lands to 404. I've filed web support ticket already. I see this EVM at https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/texas-instruments/EVMK2HX/5066961 and what makes me worry is that part is marked as obsolete. Please clarify what does that mean.
We need to connect that processor to FPGA over PCIe link. As I see, there is only AMC blade on the EVM. Could you please recommend, what could be used to to get PCIe connector, either blade or socket.
On Advantech web site EVM page is linked MCSDK, which is not maintained anymore. Quick search tells this processor seems to be supported in Processor SDK. We'd better hear expert's confirmation about that.
