GDCA presents a brand new YouTube series

Recently, members of the GDCA team sat down to answer many common questions that they’ve been asked during their years working in GDCA and obsolescence management. We aim to provide our customers and partners with more information about how we can assist them and offer even more transparency about our services and process. To this end, we created our new Engineering series on YouTube,  ‘Ask an Expert’. We sit down with experienced team members and address common questions that GDCA receives from our customers. 

Starting our series are Bill Spain, the Director of Legacy Solutions; Arlin Neirnberger, the Director of Engineering Services; and Stacy Rightnour, Director of Production. In each of their interviews, they describe in their own experiences the services that GDCA offers, their roles within the company, and the importance of GDCA’s work. They also describe some of the coolest projects they’ve worked on. From Bill Spain:


“Several that would come to mind, for example, would be Fire Island Lighthouse in New York, where we actually restored the use of a power controller that had existed in existence for many, many years and enabled the lighthouse to remain as a navigation signal.” Watch Bill’s full interview below:



At GDCA, we offer lifecycle sustainability for critical circuit boards, legacy manufacturing according to OEM’s original specifications, and sustainment engineering to deliver form, fit, and function-compatible embedded systems.
