Si360™ guiding principle for inventory management is to have an effective system that allows for the right products in the right quantity- at the right time.
Si360™ maintains inventory and box stock for its production customers for direct shipment to end users. We have a dedicated warehouse for finished goods inventory that is ESD controlled and inspected regularly to conform to ISO quality requirements.
Si360™ acts as a reservoir of wafer and die level inventory and kitting to support on-going A&D programs and last time buys. In order to sustain continued supply of sunset products and diminishing technologies and to prevent obsolescence, Si360™ has acquired storage rights for numerous products from original manufacturers. This extends long-term access to DMSMS and obsolete products to our military and space customers. It also curtails the need to redesign products that can have significant costs to our customers.
We have extensive knowledge and experience in handling bare die with ESD protected infrastructure. Our warehouse is ESD cosseted; temperature and humidity controlled and has been established with absolute privacy and security in mind. There is complete traceability of each device, may it be finished goods, silicon wafers or bare silicon.
Si360™ also provides for additional precautions such as:
Si360™ ensures ready release of the product to customers’ urgent requirements. Therefore the stored inventory is regularly inspected, tested and is guaranteed to perform its designated function. Our inventory is stored per military specifications.
VAP is a normal practice at Si360™ that involves routine periodic testing of stock. The procedures include:
With occasional failures, Si360™ exercises due diligence of re-work and re-testing to consider the devices usability. The devices are qualified to Mil-M-38510 Class S which is the highest quality standard for military devices.
