RPi board shortage
« on: October 06, 2022, 02:46:25 PM »
As you probably see, the general semiconductor shortage reached RPi boards as well, at least hobby DIY customers, nearly all chips are going to industrial customers.

One of the more interesting comments that I've seen is related to the RPI02W, basically RPi has the board marked "Not for new designs".   

I was able to get a few about 4 or 5 months ago, then one of the USA distributor slapped on a 1 raspberry pi board per address limit.....   I have taken some of my work projects to the Pico.   For projects where a microprocessor will suffice.
