As a recognized global market leader, we have a dedicated team of experts who specialize in a particular section of electronic or electromechanical products, which we source and supply to clients.

UNIQUE QUALITY STANDARDS

We are compliant with the following standards:

  • ISO-9001

    An international standard that defines an acceptable quality management system for a company. It supplies necessary detail to provide direction about what to include in their processes.

  • ANSI/ESD S20.20

    An international standard that defines the protection of electrical and electronic parts, assemblies, and equipment.

  • AS6081

    Fraudulent/Counterfeit Electronics Parts Avoidance Detection, Mitigation, and Disposition Distributors Standard.

  • AS9120

    Quality Management Systems – Aerospace Requirements for Distributors.

At Flip, our dedication to quality goes beyond just inspection. Depending on your requirements, we have the ability to perform the following testing procedures:

  • FTIR

    This test is a very complex system that is used to evaluate the topography of a component and to make a determination about the authenticity of the surface.

  • XRAY

    The system will show the engineer if the internals are the same from one component to the next. It is also used to determine the exact location of the die for easier decapping. This test is designed to locate any components that are different from the first component observed. It will determine if a counterfeiter has placed good components at the front of the tape and then changed to an altered version later in the tape.

  • DECAPPING

    The surface decapping systems we use are employed to remove the material surrounding the internal circuitry of a component. This allows engineering to determine whether the die is the correct part number and revision level for that component.

  • SOLDERABILITY TESTING

    The Solderability Test System is used to determine whether the component’s connection points will allow the proper solder adhesion in the appropriate amount of time per the component’s specification data sheet.

  • XRF-ROHS TESTING

    Used to test and verify whether the component has any of the (6) elements banned by the RoHS directive. Its primary use, however, is to determine if the leads are solder-based or lead-free. Some customers require the leads be lead rather than lead-free. The XRF System will analyze the leads, make a determination, and provide a report of their authenticity.

  • FUNCTIONAL TESTING

    Functional testing shall be available to all of our customers. This testing process will ensure that the product will function as described after being installed into the customer’s system.

  • HEATED SOLVENT TESTING

    A sample from each lot is placed into a heated solvent that will remove counterfeit ink and illegally surfaced materials placed there to allow modifications not approved by the original component manufacturer.

  • LEAD RECONDITIONING

    Occasionally, components require leads to be straightened to bring them back into specification; or, upon customer request, the leads need be retinned to allow easier placement into the customer systems.

  • RESISTANCE TO SOLVENTS TESTING

    As part of the in-depth incoming inspection procedure, components shall have the part number, ink stamping, and the component surface validated to ensure authenticity.
