Will CTMU be available in future products?

It seems that it is being removed from the pic mcus! I thought to use this module for a new project, but I am not sure because of this.

    What is the basis for saying this ?
    Some have it, some do not.

    Even if it was not available in future chips why would that stop you from using it in a current one?

    When I was searching for a chip to use for this purpose I saw that Microchip recommended some new versions of those chips. Older had ctmu module and newer ones have not. Also in recent chips I could not see that module too.

    Because this is a cost sensitive project and when the newer chips released as a substitute of the older ones, the newer ones are generally cheaper and will be more suitable.

    Future chips will not help you.  An F.A.E. may be able to tell you what they have planed for the Future ,b ut usually do not.
    You are stuck in the Present.  You can Use a Chip Not Recommended for new designs.  If you Need a Letter Promising they will continue making if for 5 or more years, you can request one.  For Now Microchip will make what ever people Buy.
