Product Life Cycles

Life cycles of Renesas products are classified into 5 groups in line with the status of a product.

Product Status

Under Development

Products that are planned to be released soon. Some of the products will have samples available.

Mass Production

Products that can be produced when an order is placed. For lead times, please contact a Renesas sales office or representative.


We do not recommend adoption of these products in new designs for the following reasons:

  • Because the product is supplied specially to customers who have already adopted it.
  • Because EOL (end of life) is being considered for the product


Discontinuation of production has been announced for these products, and the placement of final orders has been requested. Please contact a Renesas sales office or representative for more information.


6 to 12 months or more have passed since EOL was notified for these products, and we have finished
accepting final orders.


In general, when a product that is currently in production will be discontinued, its status shown on the website will change to EOL-notified about 12 to 24 months before the date it will be discontinued.

Latest Information About Products

The status of products are reviewed/changed in general every 6 months. For a PLP product, information on the length of the PLP period will be shown on its product page. Please refer to it.

EOL Notification and Final shipment after EOL notification

Renesas complies with JEDEC (J-STD-048) when conducting EOL activities for our products. The EOL notification will be issued 6 to 12 months before the final order (LTB Order: Last Time Buy Order) reception. Final shipment (LTS: Last Time Shipment) after EOL notification will be completed within 6 to 12 months after receiving the final order.
