Here are the news from Microchip:
Dear Valued Microchip Customer:
Microchip is committed to developing innovative, leading edge products that will accelerate your time to market. More than any other semiconductor company, Microchip is also committed to supplying products to our customers and the market for extended periods of time. We have a long history of supporting products for over 20 years from market introduction. Longevity of supply is one of Microchip’s differentiating values over other suppliers.
However, in the case of extended lifecycle product offerings, manufacturing, assembly and carrying costs are increasing over time for these mature technology products and packages. Rather than discontinue our mature product, Microchip will continue to support our customer needs for product availability, albeit increasing the prices in line with increased cost associated with supporting mature product lines. The price increases affect the mature product listed in the attachment:
Microchip is providing you with a four-week notification of this adjustment on these mature Microchip products so you may appropriately plan your actions.
For all orders received after 31 August, pricing for the products listed will be subject to an increase of 7.5%.
If you have questions regarding this price increase, please contact your local Microchip Sales representative.
