Online tool offers long-term support for Renesas products

A product longevity programme has been launched by Renesas Electronics to provide long-term support for customers using over 5,000 Renesas products. Available on the Renesas website, the PLP features supply period patterns for products with a minimum 10-year, 15-year or 20-year shipment run.

For markets where equipment development requires a long life cycle, a long-term supply of components is one of the most important aspects of the customers' product selection. Renesas PLP will cover Renesas microcontrollers, mixed-signal ICs, and power semiconductor devices, for automotive, industrial, and other applications for which long-term product availability is required.

It sets up three product supply period patterns: one for products to be supplied for minimum of 10 years, one for those to be supplied for minimum of 15 years, and one for those to be supplied for periods of 20 years or more. These periods begin either in January 2014 for products already in mass production, or at the point the product is registered in this programme for products whose mass production will start in the future.

For each product, Renesas will provide both product status information and the planned supply period on the company's website, enabling easy management of existing product lines and new supply selections.
