|In fact, emerging industries such as the internet of things, autonomous technology, and augmented reality require new chips that possess longer lifespans, smaller sizes, and lower power consumptions. As a result, EOL products are discontinued as wafer fabs and assembly contractors stop supporting older technologies and systems. In some cases, we have learned that companies are inclined to use an EOL component to keep costs low for a project, but most often this poses a serious inconvenience. If production of a part has suddenly stopped, companies are forced to find replacement components or re-develop the original part. || |
Obsolete part replacement is becoming an important need across many markets. While new parts can sometimes be an option, having an exact replacement part for your outdated part is often the best solution. Those in the military and aerospace markets encounter this less frequently, since those sectors require a minimum of 10 to 15 years of support. However, this is not the case for many new, old, and emerging markets.
Most industries will have to combat the challenge of component obsolescence at some point. Sigenics specializes in reverse engineering for obsolete parts in a variety of industries. We comply with your particular form, fit, and function specifications in producing your obsolete part. Our team of in-house engineers work together to determine the best layout and design of your new component to replicate - and at times, exceed - past part performance.
