Obsolescence of electronic components

Obsolescence of electronic components

Obsolescence results in the loss of the value and usefulness of a product. This is due to the rapid evolution of our technologies. This phenomenon implicitly applies to electronic components. Indeed, the development of technologies, and therefore of various machines, means that some of their components quickly become obsolete. It therefore becomes necessary to replace them.

Obsolescence of electronic components: what is it ?

Technology is what characterizes our society the most today. The constant evolution of this technology has the direct impact of improving electronic functions and industry. However, one parameter is not always taken into account. These are the electronic components that make up these functions. The evolution of these does not keep pace, which creates a real problem. Difficult to use a machine where one of the (defective) electronic components cannot be found on the market.   
The faster the technology changes and evolves, the faster the various components become obsolete. Also, it should be noted that the planned obsolescence of various products and consumables is also an important trigger for the obsolescence of electronic components. The products are made to have a very short shelf life in order to entice consumers to buy new ones.   
In reality, these new products designed and brought to the market need better generation components. These are often smaller electronic components that consume less energy and have a longer lifespan. As a result, end-of-life electronic components are no longer manufactured, making them almost impossible to find.     

How to deal with the obsolescence of electronic components ?

The obsolescence of electronic components poses a real production problem in companies. It has therefore become urgent to find solutions. This begins with integrating the anticipation and management of obsolescence of electronic components into the management policies of companies.
