Design

Good design is the basis of high quality.

Design

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.

Trial production

Select the optimum manufacturer from among multiple candidates.

Trial production

We select the optimum contract manufacturer by assessing multiple candidates in terms of the technologies, facilities and experiences.

Reliability test

Verify the reliability that customers demand

Reliability test

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.

Trial mass production

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.

Mass production

Regularly check the control data.
Conduct periodical audits

Mass production

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.
