Today we are making an official EOL announcement for the Parallax SX. You can read the attached PDF for timing, ordering information, etc.
In the interest of our business and our customers, Parallax has looked at all options to continue supply. The wafer design is owned by Ubicom and we have been presented with a final ordering opportunity. In September will be ordering a tremendous number of SX chips to complete the EOL process, serving as many customers as possible. Our future supply will be depleted according to demand, a variable we are unable to accurately predict.
There will be no effect on our own SX-based products, for which we have made per-product provisions for either a lifetime buy or redesign.
We'll be handling this issue to the best of our abilities with your interests in mind.
P.S. We will make this thread "sticky" after a week or two. For now, we need to reach our SX customers (my concern is that sticky threads are often not noticed).
