November 14, 2011 -- Microsemi SoC Products Group will use outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) provider Amkor Philippines (ATP) for final electrical package test on nearly all its products.
Tester platforms at Amkor will be configured to the same set up as Microsemi SoC Products Group, to avoid any change to form, fit, function, test coverage, or quality of the product. Amkor’s Philippines factories contain over 1.3 million square feet of manufacturing space and provide a full range of assembly and test services. The locations are ISO-9002, QS-9000, ISO-14001, ISO-9001, TS-16949 and DSCC / QML certified.
This will affect all Microsemi SoC products except ITAR-controlled products, M-Temp products, B-Flow products and RT products. These will remain in Microsemi SoC Products Group (Mountain View, CA) for all processing. This PCN is not applicable to Automotive Grade products with PPAP.
