Strict Revision Control
DFI’s commitment to strict revision control stems from using the same components across its entire product line. Customers are notified and approvals are obtained before any component change can occur. When a change to critical components becomes necessary, DFI performs extensive tests to ensure smooth transition of the products to our customers. Our professional testing center checks and re-checks every aspect of the new component to minimize the impact of a particular change.
Long Product Life Cycle
DFI guarantees that our products will be available for a minimum of 5~7 years. DFI keeps sufficient stocks of critical components to minimize the risk of discontinued items, and will issue an End of Life (EOL) notice as soon as components become unavailable, usually 6 months prior to discontinuance of the product. DFI maintains the base platform, allowing our customers to stay focused on their true value-added applications.
Our in-house manufacturing process ensures stability and complete quality control. Surface Mount Technology (SMT), In-line Circuit Test Machine (ICT), Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and Manual Insertion (MI) production lines are excellent production equipment for making the best quality products for our customers. With huge manufacturing capacity, DFI is able to fulfill the demands of off-the-shelf products, custom design service, and EMS in various industries.
DFI follows the ISO 14001 & ISO 9001 Quality Management System, with QC080000, to ensure that customers will receive only the highest-quality of products. This process includes complete evaluation ranging from functional/environmental/shipping tests to lifecycle analysis and Quality Reliability Tests that entail high frequency design analysis and thermal/humidity/vibration/drop test.
