Soldering a 48 pin LQFP and having it be fake is nothing short of a bad
experience. Like Scott, I recently purchased a fair quantity of
CM119A's from a top CM distributor. They told us the CM119 and CM119A
are now legacy products and the CM119B is current. Unfortunately, the B
model doesn't use a crystal and several developers agree that they may
not be suitable for digital and analog radio adapter applications.
There were still a few hundred CM119A's in the distribution chain as of
a few months ago.
