Central Semiconductor will continue to produce devices proclaimed EOL (End of Life) by other manufacturers, as long as there is reasonable customer demand. This eliminates customers' costly redesign or burdensome life time buys associated with a product discontinuation. It is also possible that devices not listed could still be manufactured by Central upon special request.
