Hi all,

Digikey just ran out of stock of the SOIC ATtiny45 chips and I need ~25 chips pretty quickly. I've searched all of the big name online suppliers but haven't been able to locate any.

Does anybody here have any contacts to shops that would stock these surface mount ATtiny45 chips? Thanks much!!

There's a 1 month lead time at digikey for the low voltage part, and a 4 month lead for the high speed part...

The 1 monthy delay just bumped up to 2.5 months. :(

Not if we can't reliably get'em. :roll: Same with '164/324/644; PWM2/3; '640/1280/2560; etc.

At least for us: our volumes are too modest to have any clout to get parts. So we will only design-in models that are more-or-less readily available.

Even so, the spot shortages of Mega48 and Mega88 and other AVR models in the supply channels are becoming worrisome.

Good luck on your supply problem. If you have a decent rep in your area, or you have contact with the Atmel regional person in your area, you can find out what the status really is and sometimes beg enough chips to keep going.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

So true. Silly me used one in a hobby design since DigiKey showed a bunch in stock at the time. Now when I go to make another batch they're nowhere to be found...

This frequently happens to companies when they are focussing a lot of resource onto a "must succeed" new product. The AVR32 migth well be such a beast. On top of that, demand has been growing pretty steadily in the semiconductor industry for the last 6-12 months and places that are tight in fab capacity often run into bumps like this.

None of us is very happy when it happens. We can, at least, have the comfort that Atmel is not the only place in this situation.
