How to address future obsolescence in embedded computer systems

Published by Abaco Systems

Safeguarding the future of any program that includes embedded single board computers in terms of its long-term viability is typically front and center of the program manager’s upfront thinking. How can the length of its deployment be maximized? How will it be designed to respond to changing demands? How can the program’s goals be achieved cost-effectively? Well-developed strategies are available to help program managers through this potential minefield, as this white paper describes.

In the embedded electronics marketplace, crucial programs such as those in aerospace, semiconductor, medical, pharmaceutical, metals, CNC, and others have significantly different dynamics to so-called “standard” applications. While it is true that all systems are considered crucial by someone, failure in one case looks very different from another. This is why many critical-need systems are designed for very long life. The potential benefits of periodic upgrades are weighed heavily against new potential sources of failure. This means that long term reliability and long-term supply are king - and preserving and updating systems can be a daunting exercise requiring massive investment.

This white paper discusses well-developed strategies to help you evaluate and strengthen your plan for long-term viability of programs and systems that includes embedded single board computers
