Lead time for the motion sensors from TDK InvenSense are at a record 52-week lead time. TDK InvenSense has recognized these issues further exuberate customers with new projects where proof of concept is required, or application under alpha or beta builds are being put on hold.
To support these types of customer requirements Component Distributors is stocking part numbers ICM-42670-P and ICM-42688-P and limiting the number of parts purchased to 100 pcs per customer.
