Hi SYama14 and Munesh, 

 

I can't find PCN 118636 in the "QDMS Search PCN Database". Do you know where I can find it?

Hi Azizul

We are 99% sure at this stage it is EOL. Multiple distributors have told us they have received notification already.

Seems a shame to EOL it with no replacement!

Thanks
