Supply of the POWERSTEP01 IC

Question asked by Graham on Jan 4, 2016
Supply of the POWERSTEP01 IC

I have recently completed a design using the POWERSTEP01 IC which I think is a great chip, however there is no stock available of this chip anywhere in the world. Some distributors are saying 16 week lead times and others saying 20 weeks. Some of the distributors such as Mouser have been attempting to contact ST as they were expecting a delivery last year however they have been unsuccessful in their attempts in getting any delivery updates.

Does anyone know if there are any issues surrounding this chip? I don't really want to do a complete redesign and use something different however I feel as through I will have no choice if we don't get more information.
