5. Once the design is completed and all signoffs have occurred (including your review and approval as the customer), our supply chain management team works with our top tier suppliers to fabricate and package the new device.
6. As the engineering hardware is being fabricated, our designers will develop the characterization and manufacturing test plans. Tester interface boards are designed and fabricated and all characterization / test programs are written and verified
7. Fabricated parts are subsequently characterized in our Vermont Lab or at an approved vendor’s location. Rigorous testing is completed at process, voltage and temperature extremes to verify all specifications are met in all environmental conditions. A thorough characterization report is prepared and delivered to you and the ASIC North development team. You (as the customer) and the ASIC North development team all parties must approve the Characterization results prior to proceeding to production.
