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 well 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, last ship end of 2019. Some components used in these designs have already been discontinued, or going EOL (e.g. Via VT6105M LAN, Realtek audio codec, miniPCI connectors).

Due to declining demand, production is somewhat intermittent - please place forecast orders to ensure timely delivery. If you require larger quantities, we need your quantity forecast by October 2018 ! Final order date is expected to be April 2019 given the CPU discontinuation.

alix1e EOL, available while supplies last.
alix2d2 EOL, replaced by alix2d18, will replace by alix2e18.
alix2d3 EOL, replaced by alix2e13.
alix2d13 EOL, replaced by alix2e13.
alix2d18 EOL, available while supplies last. Will replace by alix2e18.
alix2e13, alix2e18 Active. If you use larger quantities, we will need your quantity forecast by October 2018.
alix3d2 Active. If you use larger quantities, we will need your quantity forecast by October 2018.
alix3d3 Active. If you use larger quantities, we will need your quantity forecast by October 2018.
alix6f2 EOL, replaced by alix6i2 / alix6j2.
alix6i2 / alix6j2 Active. If you use larger quantities, we will need your quantity forecast by October 2018.
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 mid 2018 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 / apu3 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.
