The information about QorIQ LS1043A/23A Product Longevity is not clear to me (15 years vs 10 years), because:
Please, could You clarify this information to me? Especially what is Product Longevity of the parts (LS1023AXN7KQA, LS1043AXN7KQA, LS1043AXE7MQA)? There is message in the forum (https://community.nxp.com/message/898813), where "Application/Qualification Tier" is declared the same as "longevity", but I still haven't found any LS1043A/23A with 15-YEARS APPLICATION LIFE.
Solved! Go to Solution.
LS1023A & LS1043A are under the NXP Product Longevity Program, which states that a device (not any specific revision) will be shipped for at least fifteen years from product announcement. As such, the LS1023/43 family will be shipping at least through October 2024.
Application/Qualification Tier information corresponds to the guaranteed duration of the reliable processor operation as part of specific application (of course when all requirements and recommendations of the processor's Data Sheet are fulfilled).
> There is message in the forum
This message corresponds to the specific case when the product longevity is the same as application tier grade.
Sorry, but the longevity (shipping) still not clear, because the LS1043A/23A "Product Launched" is specified as October 2015 (screenshot attached) on the mentioned Product Longevity page, hence I would expect shipping at least through October 2030 (2015 + 15 = 2030). Please, why this calculation does not match to yours?
