Absolutely no SAM3U in stock!!!

Sat May 15, 2010 11:16 pm

I've contacted bunch (around 50) IC suppliers(including Digikey,Mouser etc) - there is absolutely no stock of SAM3U. One of the suppliers told me 12 weeks lead time - but this is suspicious.

I'd recommend to everyone planning this micro for new designs - make sure you'll be able to get it by the time you design is ready.

What surprises me is that Dev Board have been on the market for some time already. I can have my firmware running for days, with SAM clocked at 96 MHz - no problems noticed.

I wonder what kind problems Atmel is having with manufacturing this one.

P.S. to all who will be shopping in Asia for SAM3U -read sparkfun story

We've had our evaluation board for almost a year now and still the SAM3 is only sampling. In fact all of Atmel's Cortex M3 chips are only sampling.

Atmel - is production likely to start soon?
