We have now released the first two variants in the IQAN-MD5 family, the 5" and the 8" variants.

You'll need IQANdesign 7.02 to use these, which also is available.

The IQAN-MD4 platform will continue to be supported alongside the newly introduced IQAN-MD5 platform. Our standard End-Of-Life (EOL) process for products involves a notification given three years prior to the Last Time Buy (LTB) opportunity, followed by a period that allows for last-time purchases, with the last delivery occurring approximately two years after the LTB date.

In the long term the IQAN-MD5 platform will live longer and is a better choice for you when planning your platform moving forward.

Is the long term plan to eventually replace the MD4 with the MD5?  

The main reason I ask is that the MD5 seems to have slightly less capabilities than the MD4 (most specifically, 3 CAN networks instead of 4), and I would like to plan our platform accordingly moving forward.


Thanks
