PC Engines EOL policy
EOL policy It has always been our aim to provide stable platforms to our customers. Some of our products have been in production for over 10 years. However, technology eventually moves on, and essential components get discontinued.
alix series Not recommended for new designs. AMD has announced a last order date of May 2019 for the Geode LX platform. We already had to do "life time buys" for some other components that were discontinued.

As of January 2016, we have good inventory for most boards. For additional production, volume commitment may be required. Customers who need custom board configurations should allow for sufficient lead time. Please contact us if you require availability beyond May 2017.

apu1 series Not recommended for new designs. The CPU power regulator is EOL, we have done a lifetime buy. Once this stock is exhausted, apu1 will be discontinued (expect around end of 2017 depending on sales rate). A redesign to use a different controller would be possible, but does not seem attractive given the higher cost and power consumption compared to apu2.
apu2 series Based on an AMD embedded CPU, this platform should have good long term availability. This CPU should be available until 2024 according to AMD !
