where did all the lower end FPGAs go ??

rob77:
haven't done a FPGA project for a while, but now i have one to work on.. a small project with a need for a small-ish FPGA in single piece quantities (15kLE-ish, ~60 IOs, no high speed transceivers). wanted to buy some silicon for it, so went to TME... nothing, Farnell nothing... Mouser, Digikey nothing (either obsolete parts in stock or just higher end).
i'm familiar with altera, so was looking for MAX10 chips (as they're not obsoleted yet), and there is simply none...   
on the other hand i see a lot of lattice fpgas in stock, so is it time to switch ?

Search the forum for “chipageddon”  ;)

voltsandjolts:
Yup, FPGAs virtually unobtanium.
MAX10 situation is problem for me too.

Intel bought Altera because they're interested in big, fast devices to accelerate their high performance servers. They have no interest in the smaller parts, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if devices like Cyclone (4, 5, 10) FPGAs are never fabricated again.

Same with Xilinx bought by AMD.
