Many people have asked this question.
As a distributor for HopeRF, the end-of-life rumor is just that, a rumor.
Interestingly, the rumor was started because Hope wanted to push their new flagship RFM69 product line at the time.
The RFM69 offers higher performance at lower cost, so it makes good business sense for HopeRF in this regard.
The truth is, the RFM12B has moved to their tier-4 manufacturing status, which means there is a 1K pcs minimum order requirement (MOQ), paid in advance, with 4-6wk lead time.
We have many hundreds in stock, and as long as customers need them, we will continue to stock them.
