PPICONE: You certainly have a good point here. I also feel that you cannot only focus on the budget. It should be both and wait till the time comes. It cetainly a plus factor in the long run.

After the trouble we have had, we now do not ship anything from China that is not traceable without going to a 3rd party test lab. For a small Company like us, our internal QC was lacking. The days of using my Orafec machine and acetone are history.... We use AAA Labs as they have a test facility right in China. It is not cost effective of course but pricing parts a bit higher to ensure complete quality out weighs everything else.

From time to time you hear a story about the gov't buying a bad part and it having disastrous effects on their side.

We would certainly be willing to try to help in situations when there is a legacy product involved. In my experience, those are some of the high dollar items that are easy to duplicate, thus the plethora of bad parts in the market. Again, with a known vendor, stringent testing procedures and an open relationship with said vendor, a lot of these situations can be avoided.

That's a great question. Each part we purchase does go through an inspection process in house, but no- we don't decap and xray every part that passes through. But if you want us to, we certainly can.

We do have a vendor rating system we use in house, which helps us identify the vendors for which we use our regular inspection process. If we feel the need, we can xray or decap in house for those vendors that we either don't have a long relationship with, if there's a part that's been flagged in the system as suspect in the past, or honestly- if we just think it needs to be done. We have 28 years of experience behind the metrics that make up our rating system, so we stand by those results. As I said though, we also take it to the next level and use our market and/or commodity knowledge in deciding if parts need extra testing. And of course, if there are any flags at all during the initial inspection process, we can always pull it and do more thorough testing on it.

 

We do have a large supplier base, so it's imperative that we have a screening process for our vendors. "Know thy vendor" is one of the rules here at Smith that we all abide by. We are only as good as the products we sell.

That's an extensive list of test procedures to execute. So will all the lots undergo this testing or only based on the supplier type. In general do you work with any suppliers other than big oem chip companies?

Getting a certificate does not mean you got free license. It's just permit for you to drive business. Sadly right now when it doesn't happen right now

During war situation like that of Iraq an Afghnistan, many different parts were needed on regular basis.
