Can anyone tell the exact years to EOL for part - EPCQ16ASI8N, I need it on very Urgent basis. Lifecycle is Active but I need how many years it will be Active from December 2022
Basically, product life cycle is 10 years, but it depends on market demand, some product will have longer shelf life.
Intel will send PDN - Product Discontinuance Notice to all customers (you need to register your email to get the updates) before any product will be EOL. In PDN there is last order date and EOL schedule.

Nobody can tell you this in public that knows what they are talking about.
Intel might give you some info, but only under strict NDA.
Even then there are a lot of caveats, customer order volume being the main criteria.
Intel will phase out parts when the orders dry up or it becomes not possible to produce the part at a profit.
Or maybe the technology becomes obsolete and the fab shuts down.
For any critical parts in your product you are wise to use multiple sourced parts when possible.
