@Justin : I mainly miss Barometer, Daisylink, IO60P, Distance, current (in legacy).
I used these modules to control lot of servos and get multiple sensor source to detect "unstable" activity and engage failover processus.
Sure, these modules can be reproduced somewhere, everything can be rebuilt, and it's the case for every component, but what a timeloss...
We were supposed to mount new type of machines in early september, and I wanted to buy the missing elements when I discover that they were discontinued.
@Gary : How can I do my tests without prototyping material ? I have some stock, but some components are missing.You said sources are available, yes, sure, but how many times will I lose ? How many times will I need to change provider before find one that build the card correctly ?
It's a huge timeloss for us.
So now I will remove completely gadgeteer from the "core" of the system. May be I will still use it for small peripherals. And switch to my backup solutions, and pay again for hardware and developments.
You also said that you can still build PCB with discontinued components, good news. I actually use the G400 board in my applications, can you guarantee you won't discontinue it and PCB board using this chip will still be available tomorrow ?
GHI took an unilateral decision, for it's own business, and I understand that, but as customer, my vision is : "GHI sold me components dedicated to prototyping, that they discontinue after the development phase".
