Hi all,

We're considering using the ATxmega64A4 in a design.

We've approached our local distributor who has advised a lead time of 26 weeks, and samples are difficult to get a hold of. Owch!

Does that match what others are being told? Is the 26 week estimate likely to be true? Digikey are saying "call us" on their website and there's no "check distributor inventory" link on Atmel's website.

For reference, we've been getting 16 week estimates on the ATxmega32A4, but at least they're getting delivered...

It looks like 20+ weeks is typical lead time for Atmel micros. :cry: but then its a similar story for other bits. I just ordered some components for January 2011 delivery. :evil:

Everyone complains about some component shortage or another http://in.reuters.com/article/bu...

While it is only for North America, it can still be useful (right, js?):

I thought there was a link to that from each model's page? I guess that is only for "real" parts and the lack of the link gives you a clue.

Also use www.findchips.com and www.octopart.com .

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

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

ATXmega32A4 is in stoc at Digikey http://search.digikey.com/script...

ATXmega64A4 is on top regarding the memory size in its A4 family.

If you consider to switch to A3 family, then you have a chance to temporarily replace it with 128A3 or even a bigger one.

We were looking to add features to an existing 32A4 product, hence the desire for a 64A4.

Oh well.

That's what I was afraid of...

A few places have it as a listed item but none are in stock.
