Product Supply / Extended Life Cycle

Last Updated: 06/30/2016

Question:

How can you help me mitigate product supply risks over the short and long term?

Answer:

Renesas offers two programs to mitigate short term and long term supply risks respectively. Many devices participate in both initiatives.
Star Products

In response to customers interested to know which MCU products are the most popular and therefore likely to have the shortest lead times, we have identified them using the star product logo. Please refer to the Star Product program page for more information and to find participating products.

 

Longevity Program
