L138-FX-225-RC not available at Digikey
I am developing for the L138-FX-225-RC MityDSP board. I can no longer source them at Digikey. All pages come back 404. There are pages for the L138 with FPGA but I am no FPGA programmer. Can anyone tell me what the MityDSP L138 path is going to be over the next 5 years or so and if the L138F (more expensive but available) can be used with no FPGA programming or experience as an L138 equivalent?
Note. I know that there are a few left at Mouser but there are issues that make Digikey a much easier option.
The MityDSP-L138 family (both with and without the FPGA) is still in active production and is planned to be over the next 5 years plus.
The issue you are running into is actually due to this PCN20180209000 (https://support.criticallink.com/redmine/projects/arm9-platforms/wiki/Module_Product_Change_Notifications) which discusses the fact that the 8MB NOR part went obsolete. Due to this we had to switch to a 16MB sized NOR which is why you are finding the "225" modules as unavailable from distribution but the "325" are, or will be, available. We are currently working on providing inventory to our distribution partners of the new "325" variants.

Thank you. I actually just found this out. I was misdirected because the digikey descriptor for that part was
MITYDSP-+L138F+ SOM W/ OMAP-L138
and I believed that the L138F means it had an FPGA included. However, the part number itself was 1057-L138-FX-325-RC-ND which I was later to find was the same as the 1057-L138-FX-225-RC-ND but with 16 MB NOR as you point out.
Thanks. I can now order. Good to know about the 5 year active status.
Happy to hear you're all set and thanks for bringing the description issue to our attention.
I have forwarded your comments to our marketing team to look into it.
