Commitment to quality assurance
For comprehensive quality management and assurance, MegaChips has built a system centered on the Quality Assurance Department. Through this system, appropriate guidance and supervision are provided to internal design sections and to contracted production plants.
ExampleLSI development and production
Good design is the basis of high quality.
The Quality Assurance Department reviews the design from a manufacturing perspective to prevent any potential problem. The department also holds Technology Seminars and provides training to designers for the improvement of design quality.
Select the optimum manufacturer from among multiple candidates.
We select the optimum contract manufacturer by assessing multiple candidates in terms of the technologies, facilities and experiences.
Verify the reliability that customers demand
We verify that devices have the reliability that customers demand through environmental and endurance tests.
Trial mass production
Conduct initial production checks on the mass-production line.
Once the device passes the operation verification on the customer's product, we start the mass production. We check the quality data in detail to make a final confirmation that there are no mass production issues.
Regularly check the control data.
Conduct periodical audits
We take steps in advance to prevent any technical problems by evaluating and analyzing the control data from the production site as well as periodic factory inspections.
If quality issue arises...
Rather than simply leaving it to the production site to inspect the root cause, we also analyze the LSI to determine whether there is a problem with the circuit. By working together with the production site, we can quickly and accurately identify if it is a problem with the circuit or with the production process and give appropriate directions and take steps for improvement.
