Maxim Says Datecode Restrictions on Electronic Components are a Relic of the Past

When working with many of our customers, they share with us their date code restrictions for electronic components.  Sometimes it’s 18 months, sometimes 3 years, you name it.  We located the following guidance document produced by Maxim Integrated electronic components.   It states that with today’s manufacturing standards and materials, older date codes are no longer an issue.  This is great news for many product manufacturers.  They can loosen unnecessary purchasing restrictions, which will allow them to have more access to electronic parts, and at much lower prices.  To see Maxim’s document please click here datecode_policy
