L-3 Advanced Products & Design's Rapid Retargeting® design process solves obsolescence issues by capturing existing component, board or subsystem functionality and upgrading it to modern technology, creating a form, fit and functional replacement. Retargeting is typically done when existing hardware becomes usupportable. The retargeting effort begins by extracting the functionality of the target hardware and capturing it in hardware description language software (e.g. VHDL). The resulting model is simulated and compared with the original hardware for verification. Once verified, the model is implemented in a new hardware design using high performance, programmable components. The result is a highly portable technology that makes subsequent hardware modifications and upgrades much easier, providing an obsolescence solution for the lifetime of the system.
