Dear Valued Customer,
We are contacting you today to notify you of a TS-47xx, TS-7250-V2, and TS-7700 Processor Last Time Buy Offer impacting 1GHz Sku Only. Technologic Systems has been notified by Marvell that the processor utilized on the TS-47xx, TS-7250-V2, and TS-7700 products will no longer be offered in the 1GHz speed grade. Technologic Systems will be placing a large End of Life Last Time Buy to mitigate the impact on our customers' products. Marvell will continue to offer the 800MHz speed grade for several more years, so any customer using the 800MHz product offerings will be supported in full production for many years to come. We are extending the offer to our customers using the 1 GHz speed grade to participate in the last time buy of this processor to guarantee your product lifecycle for as long as you would like.
The affected products are: TS-4710, TS-4712, TS-4720, TS-4740, TS-7250-V2, TS-7700, TS-8150-4710, TS-8150-4712, TS-8150-4720, TS-TPC-8390-4710 and all standard and custom product variations
We have been notified by Marvell that they are terminating production on the 88AP168 (1066 MHz ARM9 CPU) after Q2 of 2018. The production on the 88AP166 (800 MHz ARM9 CPU) CPU used on all of the 800MHz CPU skus will be continued for the foreseeable future. Any customers currently using a product with the 800MHz CPU will be unaffected by this announcement. Any customers interested in migrating their applications to the 800MHz CPU should contact email@example.com with any questions you may have.
Technologic Systems will be placing a last time buy of the Marvell 88AP168 (1066 MHz ARM9 CPU) processor to sustain our lower volume customers for approximately 4 years. For those customers who would like to ensure their supply of the products with this CPU we are opening up a last time buy program. We would encourage participation in this program for any customers who are purchasing the TS-47xx, TS-7250-V2, and TS-7700 products in volumes of ~75 units per year or more, plan to ramp up their usage over the next several years, or would otherwise like to ensure a dedicated supply of these devices for their long life product offering.
We can facilitate the purchase of the Marvell 88AP168 (1066 MHz ARM9 CPU) on your behalf for $25. We would manage the inventory in our warehouses, and utilize the components you purchase on future orders of these products. With an advance purchase of the CPU future purchases of the completed systems will have a reduced price.
Customers must contact us before May 31, 2018 (1 month from now) to participate in this last time buy so that we can plan appropriately. We are also happy to address any other concerns you may have with the TS-47xx, TS-7250-V2, and TS-7700 products.
