i'm slowly going mad designing stuff in this chip shortage.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN 3000 PARTS DISAPPEARED FROM YOUR INVENTORY IN THE FIVE MINUTES I READ THE DATASHEET!?

fuck you. *puts in 2.8V X2SON LDO for 3.3V*

i'm playing BOM whack-a-mole here and all because I thought "oh this extremely common part won't just disappear completely before i've finalised my board"

@ln I recently returned to embedded systems design and hardware engineering after an absence of about 7 years and its worrying how many formerly common components have simply disappeared, or have become a lot harder to get even in quantities for prototyping..

@vfrmedia i'm really glad that i have a whole lot of parts here which we use in lots of designs, but it's awful right now for designing something new (or with an stm32)
