I have recently heard that TI is planning to change the status on all their multicore parts so only big quantity buyers can use them – like the OMAP4 status.

This is being done to eliminate tech support for small buyers.


I am designing around a DM3730 now and trying to get some kind of confirmation of this.

Has anyone heard of this change?
