Opal Kelly’s Commitment to Your Product’s Longevity

Our products rely on a number of devices from connector and semiconductor manufacturers and we regularly receive lifecycle updates from our vendors and manufacturers. Unfortunately, the eventual end-of-life will come to some of those devices that are critical for the manufacture of our product. When that happens, we’ll do our best to notify our customers through our newsletter and provide advance notice before last-time buy opportunitites.

Product lifecycle information is subject to customer demand and availability of materials. All information is subject to change without notice. Contact Opal Kelly Sales for detailed information and planning.

Please subscribe to our newsletter (see the signup form on our home page) to receive product lifecycle updates.

Major Component Lifecycle

Our FPGA integration modules and the applications into which they are integrated are dependent upon the specific FPGA family upon which they are based. The information below is a representation of our understanding of the guidance provided by major vendors that will, more or less, dominate the lifecycle status of our devices. The information here is provided as guidance only and is subject to change.
