Flame me privately (or send roses ;-)) if you think that I should
have OT'd this.
It will help to establish where the balance lies.
Reason for not putting OT is that some have OT filters so that they

benefit from this.
This is from a local supplier in ZN but we seem to be fairly close to
the coal face - it certainly seems world wide applicable.
Tain't PICs per se but are an indication where the market is going
(buy now ...)
We are moving rapidly into a period of component shortages. Both
Motorola and ST are reporting increasing lead-times.
Mot linear is out to 12 weeks while ST logic and linear are similar
with some ST flash now on allocation. Please alert your purchasing
A reminder that Motorola last time buys for the 68HC705P9 and the
705J2 will be in 14 and 10 weeks respectively.
Also the HC11A1 has its last time buy date of 15 Sept 99.
