Customers trust Maxim because over the years we have carefully avoided discontinuing parts. We work diligently to avoid this by either transferring products to newer production lines, creating wafer buffer inventory, allowing last-time purchases, or developing upgrade devices. Despite all of our efforts, there are cases when we are forced to discontinue a product. Maxim pledges to earn and retain the trust of our customers by taking all possible actions to avoid product discontinuance. We believe you will find our policy to be one of the most flexible among our peer supplier companies.
We know that this is inevitably inconvenient, but if you review our Product Discontinuance Policy, you will find it one of the most flexible among our peer supplier companies.
