We have the MCF52234CAL60 in current designs what is the current life expectancy on this part?
This subject is coming up a lot lately. There may be some duplicates in the following.
Here's the NXP Product Longevity Page:
There is more detail on the Archived page:
NXP Semiconductors provides a product longevity program for the market segments we serve.
For the automotive and medical segments, NXP will make a broad range of devices available
for a minimum period of 15 years. For all other market segments in which NXP participates,
NXP will make a broad range of devices available for a minimum period of 10 years.
Life cycles for participating NXP products will begin at the time of product launch and will
include the standard NXP end-of-life notification policy (one-year notice for placement of final
orders and an additional year until the last ship date).
There are four MCF51 "Processors" on the first Longevity Page. There are 19 MCF "Microcontrollers". The MCF5223x is on that list with a 10 year Longevity from a Product Launch Date of March 2007.
That means that Motorola/Freescale/NXP guaranteed the product would be available for that long. That doesn't mean they'll stop making it then. If the product is still selling well then they'll probably keep making it. There are other CPUs that are a few years beyond the "Product Longevity" and they're still in production.
The "Buy/Parametrics" tab on the Product Page is here:
The "CAL60" Part Details are here:
That tells you the product is:
Life Cycle Description (code) PRODUCT MATURITY/SATURATIONStatus ActiveApplication/Qualification Tier 10-YEARS APPLICATION LIFE
The Status changes to "Not Recommended for New Designs", then "End of Life", Last Shipments" and "Removed from Active Portfolio". There are a lot of chips in "Not Recommended for New Design" that are still being made. The one you're using isn't there yet. Note that when it goes to "EOL" you still have two years from the part I quoted above.
If it's of any interest, we are a strategic partner of NXP offering a variety of NXP technology through an IP licensing program. This is useful for companies that have very long product lifetimes and those that want to use the products in an ASIC or FPGA model. We are familiar with this problem and these IP solutions have worked well for many of our customers.
We have a number of ColdFire (V1, V1+, V2, V4) processors and platforms, plus Power Architecture e200 family, and HCS08 as well on the processor side. In addition, we have FlexRay and CAN-FD products on the automotive interfaces side.
If you need something you don't see, you are more than welcome to contact us about it.

We're sorry, but the page you were looking for doesn't exist.
That's not a good look!
I think you meant:
Weirdly the capitalization matters. "ip" and "IP" aren't the same on your site.
Thanks Tom! Can't believe I did that.
For the product longevity issue, we recommend to contact our distributor within your location. We had updated information for distributor.
