Long Term Component Storage
As a strategy to maintain long term supply, storage of silicon in die or wafer form followed by assembly and test on a periodic basis has been proven to be an effective approach. Eltek has a successful track record of maintaining production in this way for in excess of 20 years.
Benefits of wafer and die storage include:
- Reduced up-front costs when compared with a traditional life-time buy.
- Reduced risk of solderability problems when compared with storing packaged devices.
- Increased flexibility in the choice of packaging and lead finish, allowing decisions to be made when components are required rather than at life-time buy stage.
- Factory fresh units manufactured to meet on-going programme demands.
Our facilities utilise purpose built nitrogen storage cabinets in a secure, controlled and monitored environment. We can store customer owned material in two facilities and provide a range of quality monitoring services and reporting options.
