So 27SF512s are out of production
So says my distributor anyway. This is a real bummer guys, these dudes are a great little chips. Easy to work with, low cost, and the Moates Burn1/2 supports them quite nicely.
I've got about 1000 pieces currently in stock, which is good for about 500 more basic boards. I can replace with the older 27C512, but these are a pain to use (UV erasable ick!, Moates Burn1 won't burn them) and they're more expensive (go figure).
I think what I'm going to is continue to ship new basic orders with the 27SF512 until what I've got is gone, but any requests for extra chips will be the 27C512s. I'm going to assume that if your requesting chips you don't need the re-usability of the 27SF512.
I will not sell any of the 27SF512s I've got in stock separately anymore, don't even ask, I'm reserving these for new basic board orders only. I also won't adjust the price of the basic boards, but when I run out of 27SF512s I'll switch to using the 27C512 for everything (assuming of course SST doesn't decide out of the kindness of their heart to do another run of them, but I wouldn't hold your breath).
