Frequently Asked Questions
Logic PD’s product experts can provide the continuation engineering necessary to keep your SOM relevant and current in the marketplace. Below is a list of frequently asked questions about Logic PD’s SOM product lifecycle management program.
Q: What is the average life expectancy of a Logic PD SOM?
A: The planned life expectancy of most of Logic PD’s SOMs is between five and eight years.
Q: What happens if a part of a SOM becomes unavailable?
A: In the SOM development process, we make sure we address lifecycle concerns in order to minimize the number of changes required to keep the SOM current. However, if a SOM part does become unavailable, Logic PD has experience in finding replacement parts that fit within the SOM’s form factor. Logic PD then works to ensure the change will have minimal impact on the end product.
Q: What is Logic PD’s policy regarding a SOM going End of Life (EOL)?
A: Logic PD will provide an EOL notice to all SOM customers when the SOM begins to enter EOL. Typically, customers are notified six months ahead of time, allowing them to place their last time buys. Depending on the circumstances and customer requirements, we may also negotiate extending EOL dates for certain SOMs.
Q: What is Logic PD’s policy towards form/fit/function changes to SOM products through part obsolescence?
A: Logic PD can provide the continuation engineering necessary to keep the SOM relevant and current in the market place. If components become obsolete, Logic PD can search for replacement components, design the replacements into the SOM, and perform validation and compliance testing to ensure the SOM meets design and regulatory requirements.
Q: Does Logic PD offer SOM lifecycle management?
A: Yes, Logic PD provides full product lifecycle management for the life of the SOM including product change notifications and EOL management.
Q: What type of engineering support is available if I design a Logic PD SOM into my product?
A: Logic PD has design engineering and application engineering support that can be utilized to help in design and application validation.
Q: Is engineering support available after the development process is complete?
A: Applications engineering support is available after the development process. Continuation engineering support is included as part of our lifecycle management support.
