Qualification Services / MIL-STD-883 & JEDEC Screening

Since March 2000, Defense Logistics Agency (DSCC) has evaluated Golden Altos Corporation’s laboratory and found it suitable for performing testing in accordance with the Department of Defense specifications listed herein.

All testing performed is compliant per test methods in:

  • MIL-STD-883
  • MIL-PRF-38535

The types of qualification tests used to determine the reliability and quality of solid state devices used in high reliability applications are divided into three different classes:

  • Environmental — Devices are subjected to different varying environmental conditions. Variable environmental parameters include, but are not limited to, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure.
  • Mechanical — Devices are subjected to different destructive and non-destructive mechanical stresses including, but not limited to, vibration, twisting, and bending.
  • Electrical — Devices are subjected to different electrical stresses including, but not limited to, different levels of supply voltages, threshold and non-threshold voltages.
