This is my first automotive PCB. I designed in a high temp crystal from Digikey. Stock then went to 0 with big lead times, and then my alternate went EOL. I then spun the board with a TCXO. All three parts I had picked went to 0 stock. I then sourced from a manufacturer, and then this went EOL.
Isn't a high temp 32Mhz oscillator a common thing in automotive just like a 32Mhz oscillator is in a consumer product? It sounds like it isn't. I never had trouble in consumer. Can someone tell me what I don't know about sourcing this part and not having to re-source it every 3 months?
It is hard without a mentor, or experience in automotive, to find who knows what I need to know. So far the buyers don't know the answer, and the manufacturers are not responding (if they know).
