@Baozhu I don’t understand, do you mean there will be a new platform with the same functionality to replace Linkit 7688 in 2020 Q4?


It’s not fully compatible, but it’s cheap, it’s available for a long time, it has WiFi/BT, it runs Linux

Dear Baozhu

Can you tell how long we still have till the EOL?
How long in advance Seeed will inform about EOL?

do you have preliminary datasheet of it’s successor

Announcing that this product EOL is what the original chip manufacturer is going to do, we should not casually end its life.Its MOQ of delivery will only get longer and longer


I can see that availability was an issue back in April, and it seems like it still is.

Can you tell us anything yet? Its been unavailable for half a year now. Is there an estimated or scheduled production date?
I wonder how exactly can you or MediaTek sell products if they are still in production, but there is no stock and no production date, not even a remote one.

Can anyone please help with this module? I have sent several e-mails to seeedstudio, sales, orders, I have tryed the phones. I was unable to reach them in more than two months now…
