Sanmina's Costa Mesa Facility Achieves AS9100D Certification


Reading time ( words)

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.  

"Achieving AS9100D certification at our Costa Mesa technology center helps us to better serve defense and aerospace organizations across Southern California and the Southwest," said Sushil Dhiman, EVP of Operations for North America at Sanmina. "This certification, along with our complete range of services, simplifies the supply chain so that our customers can improve their time to market with leading-edge products."

Southern California is home to many defense and aerospace organizations developing advanced air, sea and ground-based systems. The electronics in these systems often require both flex circuit technology and advanced microelectronics -- two of the core capabilities provided at Sanmina's technology center.

The Costa Mesa technology center is one of Sanmina's twenty design and manufacturing facilities in the United States. Sanmina provides customers with a complete capability in the U.S. and around the world. Technologies and services include RF, optical, microelectronics, PCB fabrication, metal fabrication, design and manufacturing.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data, Chapter 1

12/30/2020 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
