Sanmina Corporation announced that its technology center in Costa Mesa, California, has earned AS9100D certification for defense and aerospace manufacturing.
AS9100D certification includes increased parts traceability, risk identification and mitigation, ensuring that the highest standards are in place for the production of mission-critical aerospace products. The new certification adds to a broad range of capabilities available at Sanmina's Costa Mesa facility, enabling defense and aerospace companies to prototype and launch advanced products with a complete range of services from one location. Additional capabilities include advanced microelectronics technology, printed circuit board (PCB) fabrication, PCB assembly (PCBA), memory products, quick-turn prototyping, new product introduction (NPI) and manufacturing services.
