We at NANOWAVE TechnologiesInc. support our customers' efforts to reduce life cycle costs by extending the operational life of legacy systems. System life extension can prove to be a very complex issue as original item manufacturers may no longer have an interest in producing spares or companies may have simply disappeared from the marketplace. In most cases, subsystems or modules that employ outdated vacuum tube technology can be replaced with more efficient and reliable solid-state units. We can examine your legacy system architecture and design state-of-the-art, Form-Fit and Function Compatible Replacement units that also offer improved performance and vastly extended mean time between failures (MTBF reduction).
