DPA Components International Provides Manufacturing, Assembly, Test, Screening & Qualification of Custom High-Reliability Electronic Components
DPA Components Int’l was awarded a $3 million contract from the Air Force to automate their Die Extraction and Remanufacturing (DPAM) process that is used for replacement spares, which normally would need less than a dozen at a time and a single order could easily be satisfied by a heavily manual procedure. However, with a series of spare orders involving 50 to 100 ICs, the current manual procedure could not provide a timely delivery. It is necessary to create a DPAM methodology with existing industry developed semi-automated equipment to produce reliably with mechanical, laser, ultrasonic, etching and microwave technology to reliably extract the die from a plastic part and repackage into a form, fit, and function package meeting the footprint of the obsolete part. The goal is to accomplish the remanufacturing average time in one-fourth the manual process time for a high quantity remanufactured production semiconductor.
BAE Systems was pleased to present DPA Components International with the Gold Tier Award for exceptional performance and contributions to supply chain success.
This award is part of BAE’s company’s ‘Partner 2 Win’ program designed to achieve operational excellence and eliminate defects in the supply chain.
DPA Components Internationall was one of 43 suppliers to earn this prestigious status from a pool of more than 2,200 suppliers within BAE’s Electronic Systems sector in 2019.
