[RC232] Why is RC1280HP-RC232 shown as ‘Not recommended for new designs’? How much longer will be in production?

RC1280HP-RC232 is not recommended for new design as you will have the RC1780HP-RC232 with benefits like smaller size and improved sensitivity. For existing RC1280HP costumer however the best approach is to continue using RC1280HP since the packet format is different and they do not communicate with RC1780HP. RC1780HP improved performance depends of different packet format since it is a different architecture. Please note that we have no plans of obsolete the RC1280HP for existing costumer as long as we are able to source all the parts used to build the module.
