A Holistic Approach to Obsolescence with GDCA
The design cycle drum beats on. Your research and development team have been stressed for months. The constant push for “the next big thing” keeps you up at night. We’ve all been there. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we look at how the ever-growing life cycles of our embedded designs affect our product portfolio profitability. Ethan Plotkin (GDCA – CEO) joins us to discuss the details GDCA’s holistic approach to obsolescence, how counterfeit parts play a role in the embedded design ecosystem, and why long term support is the key to keeping our heads above water. Also this week, we check out a new AI robotic assistant called CIMON (Crew Interactive Mobile CompanioN) created to help astronauts with their everyday tasks on the International Space Station.
