Treatment of electronic obsolescence
Obsolete function redesign
In fact, EFS controls the supply of components that have become rare or withdrawn from the standard market and is able to manufacture cards or modules with “obsolete” components. In parallel, EFS knows how to redesign the function with recent technologies, at a lower cost than the old version which has become obsolete, to then manufacture and deliver it, guaranteeing non-obsolescence over time. It oftenly provides opportunity to add value to the final product by integrating new functionalities (new regulations, communications, diagnostics, etc.).
To summarize, EFS is able to transform a procurement or manufacturing problem with “old” electronic cards into an opportunity to improve your products value.
Advantages of obsolete function redesign:
- suited product to current production
- Evolved product while limiting investment
- Uninterrupted production because development in short cycle (less than a year) with a manufacturing batch of the obsolete function (available in 3 months) to meet the junction
- Warranty of maintaining production facilites with the possibility of new functions more attractive to the end customer.
