'[PIC] [EE] Microchip selling off PB parts'

Just in case some of the listers have missed it, Microchip are selling off their PB parts at reduced prices, covers analogue,  memory and some 16bit + rfPics.

Found on the microchipDirect site - if you want any 648a's - I've just snaffled the last LF SO parts :-)

They are also offering a U$100 discount for the 16bit development kit DV164027, but you have to hunt for the discount voucher!

:: I'd imagine most of the good stuff is gone by now.

Perhaps, most of the stuff left seems to be QFP outlines and IND temp parts as far as Pics are concerned, loads of fan/temp/op-amp/adc's still going though.

A very small list that I was interested in - 16F 636, 648a (some QFP still available), 676, 716, 72, 737 (no price), 88, HV540, 18F1220,2220,2539,4331,4439,6520,6525,8410,8585,8620,8680. MCRF452,30F5013,6010.

Indeed - none of the PICs that I looked at were available in DIP.

Oh go on, give us a clue!  I just tried searching for it, and got "Content Server is too busy to handle request" - so perhaps the whole PIClist is trying to find it!  :-)

...and probably the rest as well who is on MC forum :-)

I remember when I got my 30c ticket (incl. taxes!) from Ryanair two months
ago the sever dropped weird error messages during the offer :-) I had to sit
there and keep on trying when finally I got it :-) DDOS attack by humans :-)

I was vague because I found it by accident. I think it appeared on the random advertising banner. I know I had to answer some questions.

I can only find the Circuit Cellar offer at the moment - it's on the website somewhere!

Probably.  One of the things I noticed was that there are some
less popular chips that were still around at bargain prices.  I
spent some time looking for a 40-pin 18F chip in DIP, for instance,
and ended up buying 18F448s, which are nominally special purpose
chips for CAN applications.  After checking the datasheet to confirm
that the CAN functionality didn't used dedicated pins, I decided
that the 448 would work just fine as a general purpose chip, especially
at $1.84 each. :-)

Ones that still have lead (Pb) used as opposed to lead free ROHS
compliant (in Europe, probably a different standard elsewhere)

Parts with lead solder on the leads, and possibly using lead internally.
These do not conform to the RoHS directive, with parts now going lead free.

Perhaps these are non-RoHS compliant components?

The metal "lead" <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lead> is known
by the symbol "Pb" in the periodic table of the elements...

Don't feel too bad, my first thought on looking at the subject line
was peanut butter. I'd guess you have to be extremely careful about
ambient temps due to the inverse relationship between viscosity and
temperature.

You may still have vast quantities of lead in your products - just not
in unapproved places. For example batteries are exempt, so feel free
to include sealed (or not) lead acid batteries as desired. The amount
of lead that can be 'legitimately' included by this and other means
far exceeds that which would usually be removed by eliminating it from
solder and from component surfaces.

Yup and the question of creamy or crunchy comes up. Life does
get complicated.

I even thought there might be some distant connection to Potter Brumfield.
My apology if the spelling is wrong. I remember
buying relays in the seventies made by them. I thought they
might have had some manufacturing agreement with Microchip, etc.
Obviously, not.

       That brings up another question. Is peanut butter
contaminated with lead PB^2?

       I guess I had better get back to doing what I get payed
to do.
