I have been designing with Motorola/Freescale micros for over 40 years.
I was concerned when NXP purchased Freescale as to what was going to happen with the Kinetis line.
I have several product that use K64 and KL17 micros. Last year (2018) availability was sparse and prices were higher than expected.
Then NXP went up for sale -- and this year (2019) it appears availability is even worse and still higher than expected prices.
Has anyone else experienced this?
I have started to move all new product designs to STM32F4 micros. They are half the price of the K64 and 180mhz vs 120mhz for the K64.
Any comments welcomed.
Digikey and Mouser have about 50k x K64s on stock for immediate delivery so for normal use all looks stable. Prices about $9.
They are about the same prices as STM32F407 parts.
Mouser currently has 17K of the MK64FN1M0VLQ12. Digikey as 20k.
Availability since Aug 2017 was little to none - Last month they had less than 25 - that's when I made my decision.
