Automatic notification for End Of Life parts

Digikey notifies customers of the End Of Life(EOL) status when the manufacturer releases a change notice to let us know their product is going obsolete.

In order to receive this automatic notification, you must have a DigiKey invoice with the EOL part on it and the manufacturer’s part change notice/EOL has to have been sent to DigiKey after your order has been processed. You will not receive this notification before purchasing the part through DigiKey.

If you are looking to order a part and do not know if it has EOL status, you can find this information under Documents & Media on the product page.

For example:

Sometimes, the manufacturer does not send DigiKey an official EOL document and just notifies us. If that is the case, this is what it would look like:
