COTS Obsolescence Management

While industry migration to Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products continues to increase, the lifespan of many COTS products can be brief. This aspect of COTS can leave you facing challenges in obsolescence management, logistics support and technical refresh planning. We can help you to protect against unexpected discontinuances and changes with our obsolescence management services.
Technology Roadmap Updates

We offer on-site and web-based technology roadmaps for all our product architectures including sServer/PCIe, embedded GPUs, displays, VPX/SOSA, VME, cPCI, COM Express, PC/104, Qseven/SMARC.

End-of-Life (EOL) Surveillance

We can conduct EOL surveillance of your current COTS technology usage and help you identify which products are at risk.

Drop-In Replacement

For those parts that are an EOL risk we can provide a drop-in replacement strategy – a service that can eliminate expensive software re-writes, system redesigns and requalification. We can develop a like-for-like replacement solution, designed to be software-compatible with the obsolete component. This form-fit-function replacement product is then supported for an agreed upon minimum time period.

Extended EOL Program

We offer our customers the ability to extend a product’s lifespan for up to two years after the manufacturer’s end-of-life announcement.
