HC2 EOL

Post by shakaworld »

Will the HC2 be continuing or is it close to EOL like the HC1 - trying to plan a large project and I'm to see if a couple hundred HC2 will be available.
Thanks

I'm guessing HC2 will become EOL at the same time XU4 becomes EOL. I seem to remember hearing somewhere that Samsung was commited to produce the SOC at least until 2022, but with today's shortages, who could say?

Very true just trying to decide if I should look to pivot since I only saw 45 of the HC2 available as of today and I forgot how much warning was given when the HC1 was EOL

As described in the HC2 product page, it will be EOLed in the end of 2021.
But, the HC2 will be EOLed little bit earlier because of a very long lead time issue of the SATA bridge controller (longer than 50 weeks).
45pcs seems to be the maximum number of available units at this moment.
Sorry about that.

Consider using the new HC4.

Is the XU4 still ok or are parts becoming hard to find for that as well?

XU4/XU4Q have no issue.
We have secured key components to build around 80,000 XU4 boards and it seems to be enough to keep producing the XU4/XU4Q by end of '2022.
I hope this "painful period" will end before '2023.

N2+, C4, XU4 and HC4 will be fine by end of next year.
But, the price will increase around 7~10% soon because raw material cost is rising every month.
