We are currently using 20 MicroZeds in our organization, and have a quote to purchase 80 additional MicroZeds. Unfortunately, they are out of stock and the lead times for both the Commercial and Industrial 7020 versions are listed at "52 weeks". My questions are: 1) What are the actual lead times looking like? I'm aware that the holdup is likely Xilinx / TSMC, so you probably can't make any commitments, but I'm wondering if you can give me some insight into that number. In other words, is 52 weeks a conservative estimate and it will hopefully be shorter? 2) We can use either the commercial or the industrial versions of these boards. Do you have any insight into which ones might become available quicker?
Thanks for your help. I've already tried reaching out to Avnet and I keep getting generic sales people who so far have been unable to tell me anything that isn't on the website already. If anyone else reading this has any ideas on how to get MicroZeds quicker, I'd be interested. We would even be willing to pay a hefty premium (perhaps 2x the cost), in order to get some additional boards in short order.
