Incoming Inspection

The inspection process starts with checking the boxes for shipping damage or evidence of a counterfeit or suspect barcode label and moves on to the component level after the packages are opened. An in-depth, near 100-point inspection process via a detailed checklist of suspect error types and optical microscopy (digital imaging) is performed to verify the component part number, marking, lead straightness, color, or any anomaly related to the integrity of the devices such as cracks, dents, scratches, mechanical anomalies, spelling errors, suspect date codes, suspect manufacturers’ logos, breaks, or corrosions.
