The past half century has seen huge growth in the use of electronic components permeate just about every industry, leading to rapid product development and equally rapid product life cycles as newer, faster, shinier products become available.

In many sectors the components used have a life cycle significantly shorter than that of the product that they go into, when this happens risks can be incurred.

Princeps uses Silicon Expert Obsolescence Forecasting System to help our customers identify which products in their Bill of Material (BoM) are either at risk of going obsolete or may already have done so. By monitoring BoMs with Princeps, customer are given time to find alternatives, secure life time buys or even redesign their boards before having to face the dangers associated with having to find obsolete parts on the open market.

Even with the best planning tools there may be occasions when there is no alternative other than to access the open market to procure obsolete parts. When customers are faced with these situations they turn to Princeps and our AS6081 certified counterfeit mitigation process. We can offer a range of risk mitigation solutions, up to and including fully bespoke test and inspection plans following AS6081, AS6171 or any of the other methodologies available.
