NPI recently helped a customer around an obsolescence road block with the redesign of a single source memory module. The customer presented NPI with an immediate challenge to solve a part shortage in order to support an EOL last time buy. After exhaustively searching the independent distribution/broker market, NPI proposed a redesign to the customer that was compatible with the current board design. The new module met the overall dimensions of the original module with the exception of a height reduction to 0.55″. This allowed the module to mount perpendicular to the mainboard instead of at an angle. After receiving the approval of the first article, NPI Services, Inc. continued to deliver the new memory modules on-schedule with a 100% yield.
