i have concern regarding the longevity of EP2C20F484C8N. I don't know for how long intel will continue to support this chip:EP2C20F484C8N.
will intel continue to support EP2C20F484C8N for next 10 years or is there chip that currently has similar function as EP2C20F484C8N ?
Thank you for contacting Intel Community.
EP2C20F484C8N is from the Cyclone II device family which was introduced in 2004. It currently in a mature phase and is NOT recommended for new designs. Although it won't be obsolete within these few years the life cycle is depending on its order volume.
