Relay Expansion Obsolete?
I just received an email from DigiKey saying that the Relay Expansion is now obsolete - with no replacement. I can’t find any indication of this anywhere on the site, has anyone else gotten this email?
@Valen-Varangu-Booth The relay expansion is available directly from Onion https://onion.io/store/relay-expansion/ and also from Mouser, I use a load of them. I don't know if Onion has deprecated it (will scream if they have) but Digikey mark stuff as obsolete when they no longer will continue to stock them.
Seems like the only place to get them soon with be on the Onion store - Mouser has them as EoL as well: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Onion/OM-E-RLY?qs=%2Fha2pyFaduh1XVVaqBUS1j5dk5TfvQizQYRoRl5k6D8%3D
Hopefully this isn’t cause for any concern about their general availability.
Mouser: there are 74 pcs in stock - can ship immediately.
LC(Life Cycle?) End of Life: Scheduled for obsolescence and will be discontinued by the manufacturer.
The news is true, Onion is discontinuing the following products:
- Relay Expansion (SKU: OM-E-RLY)
- GPS Expansion (SKU: OM-UE-GPS)
- Bluetooth Expansion (SKU: OM-UE-BLE)
- Omega2 Collector’s Kit (SKU: OM-K-COL)
They will continue to be sold on the Onion store and by other retailers until inventory runs out.
