The Impact of Pre-Programming on Production Yield and Field Failures for Products using Small Chip Scale Package Devices
Low Cost programming is not a substitute for high quality
An original equipment manufacturer (OEM) producing of millions of consumer products experiences a high rate of product failures in the field due to improper handling of the 2mm x 3mm CSP ICs during the pre-programming process.
This case study compares the programming results using Data I/O’s PSV system vs a low-cost programming vendor and evaluates:
- Root cause of damaged devices
- The cost of quality
- How field failure rates were reduced
