Active Product Life Category • Active Life is the time during which Teradyne is actively selling new units of the product. During this time, full support is available for the product.
Last Production Date / Full Support • Last Production Date (LPD) is the date the product is no longer available for sale as new. • LPD systems are still considered fully supported by Teradyne's Assembly Test Division. • The latest software releases, software patches, and new product features are still verified to work on testers that are in the full support category • Products reaching the LPD are fully supported by Teradyne's global service and support organizations
Limited Support Category • Products in the Limited Support category receive no further R&D investments or product enhancements. • Software support for these products will be limited to critical bug fixes only. • Hardware, application, and maintenance services to support these testers can still be obtained from Teradyne's global support and service organizations.
End of Life Category • End of Life (EOL) is the date after which Teradyne can make no commitments for parts availability or support of any kind. Teradyne no longer officially supports testers after this event. • The latest Teradyne software releases and product enhancements are not supported on testers that have reached EOL. • Hardware, application, and maintenance services are generally not offered for EOL testers, but Teradyne's service organization will use “reasonable effort" to satisfy customer requests.
