Your rep may or may not have spoken to the right person.
But to clarify some things regarding emails I have received as a result of this post:
If you want a Renesas development kit, or if you want to purchase Renesas microcontrollers, PLEASE contact your Renesas representative. Do not email me request for quotes (RFQs), or purchase orders. While I am flattered that some of you want to send me money, I do not work for Renesas nor do I sell Renesas products.
I do not sell semiconductors of any kind. Please do not email me your BOM and ask me to quote on it.
Also, if your Freescale development kits don't work and Freescale has not been kind to you, please do not "report" them to me. While Google considers Microcontroller.com to be authoritative, that only has meaning in regards to search-engine rankings. It does not mean I can take action against any semiconductor company on your behalf. I greatly appreciate feedback, but don't ask me to take action against anyone.
is a news and information website. Just because I post information about a product does not mean I sell that product. I do get excellent search engine rankings for my targeted key phrases and Google loves me - so if you want, you can get a nice SEO- optimized ad from me for as low as $350/month to help promote your product or website:
But please, stop with the emails asking me to quote you pricing or ship you product.
