Dear Valued Customer,
We are contacting you today with a TS-7800 Processor Last Time Buy Offer. Technologic Systems has been notified by Marvell that the processor utilized on the TS-7800 product will be going end of life. Technologic Systems will be placing a large End of Life Last Time Buy to mitigate the impact on our customers' products. We are extending the offer to our customers to participate in the last time buy of this processor to guarantee your product lifecycle for as long as you would like. In addition to this last time buy we will also be offering the TS-7800-V2 as a form/fit/function compatible, price equivalent, upgrade path.
The affected products are: TS-7800 and all standard and custom product variations
We have been notified by Marvell that they are terminating production on the 88F5182 (500 MHz ARM9 CPU) after July of 2017. Technologic Systems will be purchasing enough of the kit this processor comes in to sustain customers currently purchasing less than 100 units per year for another 5 years. The Marvell Kit includes the 88F5182, a Gigabit Ethernet PHY, and 2 switching regulators. We would encourage any customer purchasing the TS-7800 in higher volumes, or those who would like to ensure a dedicated supply of these devices to join us in this last time buy. We can facilitate your purchase of these components, and warehouse the inventory at our location.
We can purchase the Marvell Kit on your behalf for $29. With this purchase we would provide you with a special part number to use in future purchases of the TS-7800, which will have a reduced price to account for the advanced purchase of the CPU, and which would pull from your reserved inventory of the Marvell Kit.
Customers must contact us before May 15, 2017 (2 months 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-7800, or the TS-7800-V2.
Technologic Systems appreciates your business. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us by either replying to this email or filling out the contact us form at http://pcs.embeddedarm.com/notices/ts-7800-processor-last-time-buy-offer.
