That is curious!  I have been using a few Maxim parts in fair numbers, and have

never had trouble getting parts.  Now, the parts I use probably are not the
ones
going into cell phones, which may be the problem.

I have used the Max 412, and use a lot of Max310 and Max901 parts, and have
never
had the slightest trouble getting them.  The only odd thing is that EVERY Maxim
part I
use is not carried by Digi-Key, although they carry pages of other Maxim parts.
