'12C671 unavailable?'

picon face
Recently, I've been developing a product using the 12C671. I've got
half-a-dozen prototypes in the field being evaluated and was just
about (this week) to order the first production run of PCBs and
PICs. Then I receive a call today from my rep who reports that there
is a problem in the factory with the 12C671 and they aren't going to
produce any until May, June, July time frame. A factory rumor reports
"end of the year". This is not a good omen.

He claims Uchip will give/sell engineering parts, with waivers. Does
anyone know what these "waivers" usually consist of (reduced specs I
imagine).

Does anyone have any more reliable info on the release date of the
12C671 or what the problem acutally is? (I ordered samples last May).

The 12C671 was really nice for this application because it had the
ADC, internal oscillator, and 8 pins. Is there another PIC
alternative, perhaps with a larger package but with equivalent
functionality (only need two output pins, one ADC input). Also, I only
need about 5 bits of ADC resolution. 500 usec conversion time is
adequate.

And finally, is there another uP from another vendor with
equiv. functionality/package?

Nobody down here in South Africa seems to. I am getting fairly fed up
with Microchip's vapourware and the way they keep their agents in the
dark (unless the communications problem is on Pace's side, which
might not be all that unlikely either). In the last month I have been
told 1 week, within next two weeks and finally about a week ago the
story changed to 2 months or so. Of course this has been going on since
mid 1997.

Just a pity the devices work so well once you get them - no way I'm giving up on
PICs...

Cheers

I guarantee you it is not Pace. The bottleneck seems to be,uhm, one step up the ladder. I've had
similarly frustrating
experiences in the past.
