We have recently got the announcment that Accellerometer FXLS8471Q is EOL.
I'm not able to find any information whether there is a direct replacement available, does anyone have an idea of a workaround rather than re-designing PCBs which are in active production.

Thanks for quick reply.
Not so happy about needs for rework layout to solve this issue!
However we will probably buy for stock here and now and reconsider our options. Your advice is greatly appreciated, thanks

You are right, unfortunately, the FXLS8471Q and other accelerometer families will turn into NRND soon since last order would be 12/1/2021 and last shipment would be 12/1/2023.

 

For the moment, we were asked by the marketing team to recommend the FXLS8962 and FXLS8964 for new applications.

FXLS8962 website: https://www.nxp.com/products/sensors/motion-sensors/3-axis/2g-4g-8g-16g-low-power-12-bit-digital-acc...

FXLS8964 website: https://www.nxp.com/products/sensors/motion-sensors/3-axis/2g-4g-8g-16g-low-power-12-bit-digital-acc...

 

Unfortunately, none of these are pin-to-pin compatible with the FXLS8471.

 

FXLS8964 will be pin and software compatible with the FXLS8962, so in case you need to replace the FXLS8962, this will be the best option.

 

Availability of the FXLS8962 is been affected by several factors, to obtained in small quantities to validate with the anticipation, please contact your local NXP Authorized distributor directly (https://www.nxp.com/support/sample-buy/distributor-network:DISTRIBUTORS).

 

Anticipated release date for the FXLS8964:

Samples: Q3 2021

Production: mid-2022
