High Reliability

High Reliability, Military, & Space Level Parts

All of our high reliability, military, space level, and commercial parts are manufactured on the same production line.  This ensures consistent quality for all our products.  It is standard for all MSI parts to undergo a 100% electrical test and 100% visual inspection.  In addition, the parts are checked for conformance to a 1% AQL at Final QC Inspection.  The quality assurance department performs testing to MIL-PRF-55342, MIL-PRF-38534, and customer specific requirements.  The following list contains some of the testing performed at MSI:
