16f84 life

Started by bhushan vemula September 12, 2003

I am planning to use PIC 16f84, 

Is there any chances for this chip to go abosolute in near future, being it older one.

Thx in advance

not likely, but could happen. 16F84A is more likely to be available in the future.
 
But why use a chip that much more expensive than the newer ones? check for instance the 16F628A, 16F630.

Yes! The 'F84A replaces the 'F84 and that is on the way out too, with the 'F627/8 doing more and cheaper with little code change. I believe any new 84's being bought are NOS (new old stock). Don't count on them being around very much longer.

I may be wrong, but I don't think Microchip has ever obsoleted a chip
without having a better drop-in replacement.
