[sdiy] that LM13-something chip again...

That's always the problem with IC manufacture.  There's probably 10,000 or more of these on a wafer, and you usually make 25 wafers at a time.  You don't have to test and package them all at the same time as it's possible to store processed wafers, but even if they just package 3 wafers there's a sudden glut.

IC availability chrisis? What chrisis?
LM13700 were wiped out to zero at Texas store not so long ago with noone able to tell when next ones arrive. TI restocked pretty quickly up to 37 thousands last week.
Over the weekend about 12 thousands were sold, so grab them wile you can! They should be all gone by Thursday at that speed.
Strangely enough they are now about 20% cheaper than when I bought them in April!

I'm talking about SOIC version.
DIP seems not to be deserved by anyone anymore, as its stock level is holding still, despite "last time buy" alert.

It's so tempting to get anouther bunch but I already have more than enough, so anybody else?

happy to receive another DHL delivery from TI while actually typing this message :) _______________________________________________
