Hi guys,


I know this is a commercial question but I think maybe some of you may help!


I've started a design with MK64FX512VLL12 almost a year ago and since then I'm waiting for the main distributors (digikey, mouser..) to have decent stocks of this part, but they never have parts available or just have a small amount of them!


In the beginning I thought this was because it is a new part, but after a year and they are still keeping stocks low. I'm planning to produce a batch of 500 units of my product in the next months and I'm not sure if I can buy enough microcontrollers on time! The same thing happens with the MK64FN1M0VLL12 from FRDM-K64F board!


I've already tried Freescale commercial support a couple months ago, but they didn't have clear answers about this.


Is this normal? Do you have any information regarding this? Maybe I'm all wrong and just supposed to order the MCUs three months before I need it in production...


Thank you very much!
