Melexis Part Suffix

We have P/N MLX90316KGO-BDG-100-SP on the BOM. Digi Key has MLX90316KGO-BDG-100-TU in stock. I don’t see the part as we have set up on the data sheet. What is the difference on Suffix SP to TU which seems to be in tubes.

Hello @S_henry,

Welcome to the community!

“SP” suffix calls out “sample pack”.
“TU” suffix calls out Tube
“RE” = Reel

Hello S_henry

Melexis part suffix SP is their callout for Sample Pack. For sample packs delivery medium is chosen in production and can be tape and reel or tube. You are correct TU calls out tube packaging.

Let me know if there is anything else that I may help you with.
Best regards


Thank you
