Yes, it's a preliminary part. We don't like to pre-announce parts but there are a few exceptions.
Click the link to be notified when a full data sheet is available. You'll get an automatic e-mail when more data is available.
The info seems done in a hurry, a wry smile at this : "Status: Not Recommended for New Designs " Really ?
- and still no Data, just a landing page with errors. So I have no idea of the package, or price, of the MAX78638
@littlemac: You're right. This was an error on our part. Our policy is not to mention a part without at least a preliminary data sheet.
We have now posted the information on the two missing parts:
http://www.maximintegrated.com/MAX31865 -- RTD-to-Digital Converter
http://www.maximintegrated.com/MAX78638 -- Three Phase Energy Measurement and Motor Diagnostics Device
Thank you for taking us to task. We are fixing our procedures to prevent recurrence.

It is very frustrating to read a product announcement such as this...and then go to the mfr's website (in this case www.maxim-ic.com) only to discover that the announced part number cannot be found on the site! Manufacturers: If you don't have any info on a product, don't advertise it!!!
