Product Lifecycle Stages

Astronics Ballard Technology has established a reputation for long-life products and industry-leading customer support. A high priority is placed on keeping products in production and supporting those products as long as possible to ensure customers benefit from years of reliable service from their purchase.

As product designs mature, newer products are typically introduced that provide advantages in terms of performance and value. Older products may also be affected by component availability issues, affecting cost and manufacturability. The lifecycle stages shown in the accompanying graphic provide a way to communicate the current status and availability of Astronics Ballard Technology products. These stages are described in more detail below. It is important to note that a current, active product should be specified for all new applications. Please contact Astronics Ballard Technology for further assistance.

Obsolete Products

An Obsolete Product is one that is no longer in active production.

A product in the "Obsolete" lifecycle stage should not be specified for new programs. Products in this stage may still be able to be manufactured, but parts are likely not in inventory, so lead times will likely be greatly extended. A current, active product should be specified for all new applications. Visit the Obsolete products page to find out recommended replacement products for obsolete models.

End-of-Life Products

An End-of-Life Product is one that is no longer available and can no longer be manufactured.

A product in the "End-of-Life" lifecycle stage can not be specified for new programs. Products in this stage can no longer be manufactured likely due to the unavailability of key board-level components. A current, active product should be specified for all new applications. Visit the End-of-Life products page to find out recommended replacement products for end-of-life models.
