STW PDN 44963 "Lifecycle-Status set to discontinued for all IOX" (44963_13133)
Availability of Control Unit IOX is limited
Lifecycle-Status set to discontinued for all IOX
The IOX has been successfully at the market for numerous years.
Vendors of main components for the IOX like output driver, CAN
transceiver and voltage regulator have issued PTNs (product
termination notification) and the same is expected to happen in the
near future for further components like the main controller.
The status of the IOX will therefore be changed to “discontinued”.
At the same time STW announces the ESX.iot as pin compatible
successor for the IOX including a 32-bit AURIX controller as well as
additional features (see attached data sheet - changes in
comparison to IOX are highlighted with red characters).
The delivery of ESX.iot samples is scheduled for April 2023,
start of serial production (SSOP) is envisaged for Sept. 2023.
STW encourages you to transfer your applications to the ESX.iot or
other current controllers. Our sales and support departments look
forward supporting you during this transition.
In case you require further IOX devices within the scope of a last time
buy (LTB), please talk to your local sales representative too.
As a result of the additional acquisition costs for components (e.g.
material price, storage costs and component qualifying costs), the
price for the IOX may increase.
Additionally, in future the warranty period may be limited by the
supply conditions of the component manufacturers.
