WHY OBSOLESCENCE MATTERS
Verifying existing stocks are usable is bringing the actual product back to life after obsolescence had it on life support without new sources. We can revive your supply chain.
Today’s technologies are developing at breakneck speed. No sooner is a product on the market than it is updated. Electronic components are therefore becoming obsolete faster than ever before.
The life cycle of a product often far exceeds that of its major components. The average lifecycle of a new integrated circuit is under two years today!
Obsolete parts are not easy to source. They often tend to end up in the gray markets, enhancing the risk of buying a risky secondhand or counterfeit component. The result is in the best case a large financial loss due to product failures. In the worst case, counterfeits can endanger the safety of your customers.
