Pyramid Semiconductor Corporation sees Quality as a key factor in the development of our business and as the foundation of trust shown by our customers. We are dedicated to total product Quality and product performance. The Quality system is based upon MIL-PRF-38535 and MIL-STD-883 Test Methods and procedures. Our Quality Manual describes the details of Quality Management procedures, Quality Organization and Material Review Board (MRB) structure.

Quality Certifications

Pyramid Semiconductor Corporation is certified as an ISO 9001 and AS9100D Supplier. The standard defines the requirements for creation and maintenance of a Quality Management System which enable an organization to manage, track, and improve quality performance in a way that is compatible with the quality policy and quality objectives established by the corporation.

Pyramid Semiconductor has always been committed to continuous improvements of its products, processes and services. The AS 9100D and ISO 9001 certification further demonstrates Pyramid Semiconductor's commitment to both aerospace and non-aerospace customers. These standards assure users of defect-free products from Pyramid Semiconductor in compliance with internationally accepted aerospace quality systems hence resulting into reduction of costs throughout the value stream or supply chain.

Pyramid Semiconductor Corporation also obtained the QML (Qualified Manufacturing Line) certification from DLA (Defense Logistics Agency).

Level Q Certification, MIL-PRF-38535, FSC 5962 (QML) as well as Laboratory Suitability Certification for MIL-STD-883 was granted by DLA. The Operational Facilities, Location and Process Flow information is provided in the table in the QML Certification letter. The Test Methods/Conditions and the test locations are included in the Laboratory Suitability letter.

These certifications allows Pyramid Semiconductor Corporation to support more than 100 Standard Military drawings (SMDs) under its Cage Code: 3DTT2. The SMDs for FSC 5962 (QML) products can be found in the Products Pages or in the DLA website.
