One of my criteria for selection of the XMGEGA was the apparent parts availability.
However, recently it seems more often than not, the parts I'm looking for have zero stock anyplace and have the long lead times or manufacturing delays with unknown times(atxmega256a3bu au, atxmega328e5 au). I could in some situation use the a3u but can not find any of those either.
Does anyone know - are these anomalies in the distribution system or is this a typical situation.
I do not need great volume at the time (100's) - if I did , I guess I would plan for these lead times.
