MK64F supply shortage!

Hi All,

We made a home security system and MK64F is the main controller chip of the system.

Our customers already took long time for testing and certification, now it is time for production.

But we can't get MK64F chip from supplier because of chip shortage.

We know that MK64F is still active and isn't end of life, but does anyone know where to buy them?

52 weeks lead time is too long for us. Should we change to alternative solution (e.g. STM32, TI and Microchip...)?

BRs,

I would not assume other suppliers are in any better shape without checking with them all.

It is an industry wide problem.

Hi

If you are not requiring large quantities the best thing to do is find a part that is on stock still and purchase the quantity you will presumably need during the next year and then redesign for it.

I found this interesting showing how a lot of processor manufacturers are reliant on the capacity of TSMC and so are presumably queuing up (some being further at the back of the queue than others (?).

Strangely when I asked a similar question some 5 weeks ago I was initially scolded that this is a technical forum and so such subjects should not really be discussed - https://community.nxp.com/t5/Kinetis-Microcontrollers/KL27-Availability/m-p/1225720#M59517 but maybe not being able to get hold of chips for products that have been in the development phase for many months may prove to be technical after all - especially when its launch date may have to be put back by another 52 weeks to get the technical bits and pieces that make it run?

For my own production needs I bought up what looked like the last stocks until Spring 2022 from whatever could be found on the various distributor's shelves and placed orders for 52 week lead time parts from then on.

Regards

Mark

Hi,

Unfortunately, all the kinetis product are out of stock status. So we do not have the better way to solve. 

Have a great day,
TIC

Hi TIC,

Thank you for quick response.

How about LPC series or i.MX RT series?

Will you recommend us change to other product line for better supply?

Hi,

LPC and i.mx may be the good choice. You would better ask if the agent has the stock. Good luck.

Have a great day,
TIC
