Are you still able to get K64 CPUs for production

I have been designing with Motorola/Freescale micros for over 40 years.

 

I was concerned when NXP purchased Freescale as to what was going to happen with the Kinetis line.

 

I have several product that use K64 and KL17 micros.  Last year (2018) availability was sparse and prices were higher than expected.

 

Then NXP went up for sale -- and this year (2019) it appears availability is even worse and still higher than expected prices.

 

Has anyone else experienced this?

 

I have started to move all new product designs to STM32F4 micros.  They are half the price of the K64 and 180mhz vs 120mhz for the K64.

 

Any comments welcomed.

 

Joe
