I've designed in the Max10 part on two designs recently, these are great parts. Particularly running Nios with several functions in the fabric. The customers have been very happy, and they are asking how long these parts will be made by Intel? For example, is the window at least 5 years?
Any information on this is much appreciated. The cycle time of parts turning over is getting quicker! So this is a legitimate question from a customer.
Max 10 device family has just introduced in recent years and recommended for new designs. This life cycle of these device should be about 8-10 years depending on its ordering volume. Anyhow, the life cycle is depending on its order volume.
