We'd like to use the Philips LPC2114 in a new design (we need 8 capture channels, a serial port etc.), but all the dealers say the lead time is24 weeks. We can't possibly wait this long to have a pilot series manufactured. Is there any place where we could buy, say 50 of these MCU's _now_ or do we need to use some other chip?
I would consider using the new Atmel AT91SAM... chips, but they aren't available yet (not even the datasheets).
(Of course, Motorola HC12, MCore etc. could be used, but they are way too expensive and we are using ARM chips for almost everything now, so..)
