Due to the inherent complexity of integrated device design and manufacturing, assuring that the deliverables are according to our customer’s expectations has always been an integral part of our workflow.
The company received it’s first ISO 9001 Certificate in 1996, and in 2010 our processes were re-certified to comply with ISO9001:2008.
Nordic Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company and as such, supply chain management is a vital part of our activity. For wafer processing, assembly and test, we have chosen world class partners like TSMC, Amkor and ASE which are certified to ISO9001 and TS16949.
To keep up with the pace of the evolving electronics industry, process orientation and non-conformance methodology is essential. Nordic Semiconductor is organized according to the main processes of our business, and each process is assigned a dedicated «process owner» responsible for improvements. Non-conformity handling is organized according to an 8-Discipline methodology.
Design projects are managed through a risk-oriented approach and every design sub-process ends with a review with a corresponding checklist and a reference team to assure the quality of the deliverables. Advanced verification tools and methods are important parts of the design processes.
