Freescale Product Longevity Statement
Freescale Semiconductor provides a product longevity program for the market segments we serve. For the automotive and medical segments, Freescale will make a broad range of devices available for a minimum period of 15 years. For all other market segments in which Freescale participates, Freescale will make a broad range of devices available for a minimum period of 10 years.
Life cycles for participating Freescale products will begin at the time of product launch and will include the standard Freescale end-of-life notification policy (one-year notice for placement of final orders and an additional year until the last ship date). Freescale will manage the program through our own factories, outside foundries and other manufacturing resources.
If it becomes necessary to transfer the production of a participating product to an alternate manufacturing facility, Freescale will re-qualify that product.
These actions demonstrate our intention to provide supply stability to our customers
