Description of Change:
Silicon Labs announces an End of Life (EOL) and Last Time Buy (LTB) for EM2420-RT
product.
All orders, including Last Time Buy orders, for the EM2420-RT must be placed by the Last
Order Date (23 September 2014) and must have a customer requested delivery date prior
to the PCN effective date (23 March 2015). Any orders with a customer requested
delivery date between the Last Order Date, (23 September 2014) and the PCN Effective
Date (23 March 2015) will be non-cancellable and non-returnable.
Orders with a customer requested delivery date beyond the PCN Effective Date of 23
March 2015 will not be accepted.
If you have questions about this PCN, please contact your Silicon Labs sales
representative. A list of Silicon Labs sales representatives is available at
www.silabs.com.
Silicon Labs recommends the EM351 or EM357 for ZigBee replacement parts. The
recommended replacements are easier to design-in, offer lower BOM cost, lower power
consumption and provide better performance. The EM351 and EM357 are not pin to pin
compatible to the End of Life device, EM2420-RT. The recommended datasheets are
available from www.silabs.com.
Reason for Change: End of Life
Impact on Form, Fit, Function, Quality, Reliability: There is no pin-for-pin replacement for
the EM2420-RT transceiver. The recommended EM351 and EM357 parts integrate the MCU
and transceiver into a single IC and is a change in form, fit and function. There is no
change to Quality or Reliability.
