Micross CMS Center of Excellence, Crewe, UK Receives Nadcap Certification

Reading time ( words)

Micross Components, Inc., a leading global provider of mission-critical microelectronic components and services for high-reliability aerospace, defense, space and industrial applications, is proud to announce that our Component Modification Services (CMS) Center of Excellence in Crewe, UK received Nadcap certification. Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of 'special processes' that brings together technical experts from prime contractors, suppliers and representatives from government to work together and establish requirements for approval. Nadcap accreditation requires a contractor to be AS9100 certified with QMS requirements in place, and demonstrates that the supplier meets all the requirements for specific aerospace industry special processes. 

Micross has successfully completed the in-depth process requirements of a Nadcap audit on the BGA Re-balling and Robotic Hot Solder Dip (RHSD) processes at its Crewe facility in England. The Crewe CMS Center of Excellence joins Micross’ Nadcap certified CMS Center of Excellence in Manchester, New Hampshire, and the pending Nadcap certified CMS Center of Excellence in Round Rock, Texas, as being one of the first companies to gain this prestigious certification for the special processes of RHSD and BGA Re-balling. Nadcap certification demonstrates the continued commitment of Micross to operate at the leading edge of component modification. Micross is fully committed to operating at the highest professional level of operation, and is also compliant to the international standards for RHSD (GEIA-STD-0006) and BGA Re-balling (IEC TS 62647-4), whilst also operating to the stringent requirements of the aerospace standard AS9100.

The Spin-Torque, Persistent 1Gb QED MRAM, 32M x 32 is the latest offering in Micross’ new MRAM family, and available as a NASA/Goddard Space EEE-INST-002, Level 2 PEM. This new device is available in two variants, either a Radiation Tolerant or as a Non-Rad device, packaged in a plastic encapsulated 17mm x 15mm 142 solder-ball BGA . All Micross pMTJ STT-MRAM devices provide near infinite endurance with greater than 10-year data retention across the -40°C to +125°C temperature range, as well as a voltage operating range of 2.70-3.60V with a guaranteed minimum access time of 45ns across the full military temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.

“We are very pleased that our CMS Center of Excellence in Crewe has been accredited with the prestigious Nadcap certification. The globally acclaimed Nadcap certification, acknowledges and reinforces the best-in-class microelectronics services provided by our Component Modification Services group. The Nadcap certification of our Crewe operations is a reflection of our values and mission to support customers’ system-critical requirements through delivering hi-reliability microelectronic components and services on-time and to specification,” stated Graham Jefferies, Managing Director of Micross Components, Ltd.

DoD Faces Growing Risks from Reliance on Lead in Electronics

12/13/2021 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Like a cancer that spreads untreated until it becomes an urgent problem, the U.S. defense community is facing a small but growing problem that is increasingly undermining U.S. military readiness and technological dominance. The problem is lead—specifically, the lead-alloy solders that traditionally have been used to attach electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Over the last 15 years, the commercial electronics industry has shifted to lead-free solders, prompted by environmental health regulations in Europe and elsewhere. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its contractors never made the switch and are still heavily reliant on leaded solders. Now, leaded electronics are becoming harder to find and more outdated.
