Power Management Longevity Commitment
Silicon Labs targets a minimum of a 10-year life cycle for all of its standard products. The minimum longevity commitment for continued availability is provided below.
As part of its on-going commitment to supply continuity, Silicon Labs may provide pin-compatible and functionally equivalent replacement products if Silicon Labs determines, in its discretion, that supply chain adjustments, product improvements, market conditions, or similar business or technical issues make this necessary or advisable.
If, for business, technical or other reasons beyond Silicon Labs’ reasonable control, Silicon Labs finds that it is necessary to discontinue a product, our policy is to issue an EOL notice that provides 6 months from notice to place final orders and 12 months from notice for final shipments. This policy complies with the JEDEC standard EIA/JESD48 that is commonly used in the semiconductor industry. We provide required support for a product for its full life cycle.
