An EOL Notice, or End Of Life notice, means that a panel you’re currently buying is reaching the end of its manufacturing process- after a certain date, this panel will no longer be in production. What does this translate to? No more panels for you to put in your product, and therefore products using that panel can be jeopardized. Will you upgrade your panel and subsequently your entire product? What if you need more time to redesign your product? What if you simply can’t redesign at this stage of production?
Finding the right interface for your product can be difficult- how much screen space should it have? How crucial is a screen for your product? Is it going to require buttons, levers, and knobs to operate effectively? Wiring these components while also not wasting valuable surface area is tricky!
You’ve done the research. You’ve acquired your design team. Your product is out on the market, and you’re going to ramp up production: except for one hitch. The LCD panel you’re using or planning on using is hard to find or reaching its end of life!
