Make up for the end of life of a COTS EBX board integrated in a medical device by changing as few things as possible and especially not the mold, therefore the external connection.
ECRIN Systems's solution
ECRIN Systems has convinced its future customer by offering a “Form Fit and Function” solution based on ETX processor modules. We have developed a business board with the same size and location of the external connectors, whithout changing any part of rest of the system, even the STN B&W display.
- Same size of the business board than the EBX in EOL version
- 100% same connectors at the same place
- FPGA emulation of old obsolete graphics controller to keep the same TNT STN display black and white
- 3 years later, the ETX concept allowed to replace the obsolescent ETX celeron module by a more recent and powerful COTS ETX module
- 10 years latr, the analyzer device is always manufactured without having to remake an injection mold
