The world is filled with electronic products which, though still useful, can no longer be manufactured. For their producers, many of these obsolete products still represent significant revenue opportunities. Our clients have a similar concern asking us, �Can we upgrade our electronics design, perhaps add a few critical features in the process and get another five to ten years product life?� Orchid Technologies' answers that question with a resounding, �Yes we can.� Orchid Technologies routinely tackles the redesign of our client's obsolete electronic products. Orchid Technologies approach is unique. We begin by evaluating our client's existing design for its strengths and weaknesses. We try to understand the original Design Intent. When reviewing an obsolete design, we start by asking questions. Questions like why did the original designers choose their particular approach? What were the original designers thinking? What limitations might they have stumbled across? How can the design be improved using modern techniques? Through answers to questions like these we arrive at a clear understanding of what we at Orchid call the original designer's Design Intent. Our study and understanding of the original Design Intent informs our product redesign approach. We become our client's expert advocates for the new product's success. Working in this way, our product redesign effort is accurate and successful.
Over the many years that Orchid Technologies has been designing custom electronic products, we have performed numerous obsolete product re-designs. Among our success stories are imaging products, photography industry products, Xray imaging products, industrial controls, chemical plant communications, medical electronics, avionics and more. The redesign of obsolete electronic products with rapid design cycles, demanding technical requirements, and unforgiving schedules sets us apart.
