Hi All

Has anyone had any experience purchasing directly from Microchip.com

I have orders some SAM devices, which are shown to be in stock but delivery has gone up to July.

Any information would help.

Thanks

This topic has a solution.

Thanks

Regards

DJ

Yeah, I've purchased stuff from them.   Usually no problems, although I've never ordered at the "edge" of "in-stock" during a world-wide chip shortage and pandemic.

partial reels of early AVRxt, development tools, occasional sales due to development tool discounts

Not bad for SAM considering the 200mm wafer situation (textbook economics, supply and demand, actualized risks)

Some SAM are receiving additional manufacturing capacity.

Some Microchip MCU are wafer fab'd at Microchip (reduces lead time, didn't search for SAM)

I need the SAMD21J18A in TQFP.

They show they got about 400 in stock but don't understand why it can not be shipped quicker.

Thanks

ATSAMD21J18 - 32-bit Microcontrollers

Industrial lead time is one year; automotive lead time is 4 months (on trays usually has a low MOQ)

What's in stock at microchipDIRECT :

If in a hurry then design the PCB for BGA.

 

Uncertain that's wafer fab'd at Microchip.

Welcome to the world of shortages and long leadtimes. The keyword here is 'allocation', anyone who's been in electronics for any amount of time will have seen it many times before. In the past it has affected DRAM, SRAM, various types of Capacitor, and certain logic families. Throw into the mix floods, fire, and earthquakes and you'll see why for JIT manufacturing to work requires a very high level of supply chain security. Which is what many large manufacturers are finding they don't have.

#1 Hardware Problem? https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/...

#2 Hardware Problem? Read AVR042.

#3 All grounds are not created equal

#4 Have you proved your chip is running at xxMHz?

#5 "If you think you need floating point to solve the problem then you don't understand the problem. If you really do need floating point then you have a problem you do not understand."

Yes, they have been manufactured and are in stock on Captain Microchip's yacht, now crossing the ocean.  Once they park at the nearest port, they will send them your way.  The captain wants to spend a few days jet skiing,  so there may be a bit extra delay.

 

If the captain gets too tied up, they also have 100 chips in stock already in one of these containers waiting for pickup....it may just take a few hour for Hal to go pick it out.  

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!
