Electronic Component Date Code Practices

ESPNews just published the first article in a series on Date Code Practices. It mentions that one of the uses of date codes is to manage changes to an electronic component that does not affect “form, fit, or function.”

I have always felt as an engineer in a test laboratory that collaborating with the Manufacturer and voicing our opinions on device performance based on testing and based on specification review for possible improvement in the future is a major contribution to the electronic component field.  Any changes or revisions can be modified in die manufacturing with detailed traceability reflecting date code criteria.
