On the GHI Web Site, I see the G120B and G400D parts marked as “Active.” As per GHI’s Longevity Promise, “Active” means: “This product is recommended for new designs. This product comes with a 5-year guarantee for full support of hardware and software from the date of release.”
I ask Forum members- if you were making a strategic plan, when would you be replacing these parts?
I’m expecting no one wants to wait 5 years to begin a replacement process for support of existing equipment repairs and new features going forward.
First of all, parts I start rolling into the product need 10-year support, so I’m not using these for new designs.
The next decision is- where in the strategic plan do replacements need to roll out in order to have a reliable hardware source? Two years out?
If the answer is “two years,” I would need to start the design process now.
Sound right? Later? Earlier?
