Product quality and reliability

All new QML products are designed to meet MIL-PRF-38535 requirements, including metallization, step coverage, and current density.

Scanning electron microscope (SEM) inspections are performed on procured wafers and die to verify the step coverage and current density requirements of MIL-PRF-38535.

All QML products are screened to the requirements of MIL-PRF-38535. This includes MIL-STD-883 Method 5004 screening and MIL-STD-883 method 5005 Qualification and Quality Conformance procedures.

Traceability to the wafer lot is maintained throughout manufacturing. A unique mark lot number is marked on the finished device for this purpose.
