The part CY8C20396A-24lqxi is in production right now, and hence you may use it in your design. However, choosing a part from PSoC4 family will give you an advantage of longer product life cycle. The availability of our parts depends on the market demand, and hence we would be unable to give you a firm horizon till when CY8C20396A-24lqxi will be available.
Another aspect to consider is development tools. Maintenance and upgrades are frozen for PSoC1 development tools, PSoC Designer. On the other hand, development tools for PSoC4, PSoC Creator and ModusToolbox have both maintenance and upgrade releases.
Do kindly let me know if you have additional questions.
Thank you for the clarification. I would think this statement also applies to the CY8C24493A-24LTXI which I am currently using for the USB HID functionality as it belongs to the same family.
Would you be able to suggest an equivalent for the CY8C20396A-24LQXI from your newer product families which have the following? The product selector on the website seems to be broken beyond use. I found the selector within the toolchain does a better job of suggesting parts for use either in designer or creator.
Low pin count
Low cost (target consumer gadget)
Small footprint maybe 4x4mm QFN (space constrained design)
I have quite a few designs using the PSoC1 family devices and will like your feedback on this. My design is not India specific, so local availability is not a consideration for me. Also, frozen updates to the PSOC designer toolchain do not bother me so long as it gets the job done.
