Lifecycle management solutions from GDCA

Lifecycle management solutions from GDCA GDCA, together with Acal BFi, deliver a comprehensive set of lifecycle management solutions, tailored to fit the requirements of your application.

We can:

  • eliminate issues related to obsolescence and costly redesign
  • extend the life of equipment product lines indefinitely, and
  • mitigate the cost of over/under stocking that result from last-time-buy notices.

GDCA have helped thousands of customers by manufacturing and repairing high-quality products that exactly meet the specifications of their original manufacturers. GDCA buys the IP of products from companies such as Artesyn Embedded Technologies, Kontron, RadiSys, Curtiss Wright Controls and Performance Technologies, and then continue to manufacture the product, under licence, once the original manufacturer has ceased production.

This means that redesigns to your systems can be avoided or delayed until it fits in with your plans.

  • GDCA build and repair over 3,000 embedded products.
  • GDCA support products in the mil aero, telecoms, medical and industrial markets.
  • GDCA have over 25 years experience in sustaining legacy systems.

When you cannot locate support or spares for embedded computing products that go into the equipment you manufacture, contact us to explore how we can help.

Obsolescence engineering

We offer pragmatic technical solutions that resolve part-sourcing issues. GDCA’s experience reveals that a small proportion of computing obsolescence problems require an engineering solution. In these cases, their expert Legacy Engineering team have delivered right-cost and high-quality solutions that have successfully preserved many embedded applications. Typically this may mean a small redesign, such as implementing a logic function in an FPGA where the discrete chip is no longer available.

GDCA’s component and system engineers can help you avoid a complete redesign of your critical embedded application. The innovative solutions have helped customers guarantee the manufacturability of products that are true to their original designs.
