100% quality guaranteed
From single prototypes to high volume production, FDI can build and deliver your product to you or your end user. We have in-house production capabilities for quick turnaround on prototypes and small volume runs. We also have strong relationships with contract equipment manufacturers for large volume projects, and can coordinate directly with any manufacturer you prefer.
With FDI managing the manufacturing, you can move to the next project. It’s like having your own production department, but only when you need it.
We manage all of the details concerning component availability, manufacturing schedules, functional test issues and quality. We ensure a smooth manufacturing flow so you can focus on other critical aspects of your product introduction.
Our strong relationships with suppliers and comprehensive experience with the manufacturing and component supply chain gives you a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than if you spent valuable time dealing directly with contract equipment manufacturers.
Whether we build your product in house or at one of our CEMs, we monitor production for quality and reliability. We provide a complete customer documentation package that includes full technical drawings, BOMs, schematics, PCB Gerbers, and product specifications.
We believe that high quality production translates into profits for us and our clients. To back up our guarantee, we develop functional testing and inspect devices on–site. We provide these two levels of quality control with no added cost to our clients.
Industry standards are an important part of how FDI measures the quality and safety of our products. We ensure all products are REACH and RoHS Compliant.
Our quality control starts at the design stage, where our engineers design for manufacturability (DFM) and design for test (DFT). This design stage is critical for on-line success. When manufacturing products designed by our customers, we verify the designs with DFM and DFT analysis.
FDI offers to supply automated functional test stations to our customers to correlate incoming product quality.
Before the first unit comes off the line, FDI engineers will design and develop automated functional test systems customized for the unit. The units are inspected for cosmetic, structural, and functional defects. Functional circuit testing (FCT), integrated circuit testing (ICT) and VI testing is fully supported.
We continually analyze our quality control data and share with our customers to continually improve the quality of each product.
An FDI product for 2009 showed less than 20/24019 or 0.08% defects for a long-running production with 100% testing in functional test stations.
A new product with several initial changes, complex functionality, and no testing in place yet.
The following table highlights some of the differences between FDI and a conventional contract manufacturer.
|Contact just one person||Contact multiple people and firms to complete production|
|Thoroughly understands product: we designed it||Sees your product for first time|
|Inside track with semiconductor vendors and distributors||Inside track with semiconductor vendors and distributors|
|Selects the right production facility for the product, based on volume and complexity||Fits your product into its facility, regardless of volume and complexity|
|Engineering is tightly coupled to purchasing and manufacturing||Purchasing and manufacturing are tightly coupled|
|Living through any manufacturing issues equips our team for your next generation design.|
