Generally, the product availability of semiconductors is significantly shorter than the product life cycle of the electronic module. The result is that some electronic components that maintain a product or system are no longer available.
Manufacturers of electric systems have to rise to these challenges. One step in solving these challenges is a strategic obsolescence management. This type of risk management can help meet these demands. We distinguish between strategic, proactive, and reactive obsolescence management.
Our obsolescence management covers continuous monitoring of the modules for changes and discontinuations. In addition we are in a position to forecast the long-term availability before the design-in of a component.
