Quality Control to Meet Your Needs

Quartus design and manufacturing processes are ISO 9001 certified. Quartus performs incoming inspection on all parts as required by the customer and product, with incoming inspection being as simple as initial verification of fit checks, or as complex as CMM measurements of all drawing dimensions or interferometric optical metrology inspections.

This is used for material tracking and any root cause analysis for failures seen in the field. Quartus externally calibrates all production/test equipment per ISO/IEC 17025 or equivalent.
