Quality Enhancement
Quality as seen by your customer is paramount to satisfaction and continued business.  The Quality working group is addressing development, manufacturing, and end product quality.


MEMS Product Design Documentation Quality Checklist
MEMS designers require additional information from the foundry than their CMOS counterparts.  Team is developing a Quality Checklist for Product Design Documentation to ensure MEMS designers are able to gather required information more easily.

IP Source Selection Tool
Risk analysis and understanding is critical in determining the source (Internal New, Internal Existing, Third Party) of required IP for your next design.  Team is developing an interactive tool to aide this analysis for popular IP blocks.

Merger & Acquisition Due Diligence for Supply Chain, Operations, and Manufacturing
M&A are a fact of life in the semiconductor industry.  Everyone has, or will likely experience this during their career.  This transition can be less painful if we use lessons learned from previous M&A to generate due diligence checklists.  The Supply Chain team is currently generating checklists to guide the process.  Draft documentation can be found here.
