Abstract
Flat panel displays (FPDs) are among the most rapidly evolving electronic components today. Newer, better products are being introduced at an ever increasing rate. While these occurrences make the latest advances in technology available, it also results in shorter product lives as newer products make older obsolete. This puts the end user and suppliers of FPD based products in a potentially vulnerable position. Military applications are particularly sensitive to this situation as their life spans most often exceed those of FPDs. This paper addresses the issue of short FPD component product lives, and presents several techniques employed by Eaton in FPD based designs that are an attempt to minimize vulnerability imposed by the FPD industry.
