New Supply Chain Model

01.04.2016


ETIC has adopted a new supply chain model. As a result, our long-time contract manufacturer, CHIPS-Inc., has taken on a new role. For almost 20 years, CHIPS-Inc. has provided all the sawn on tape and waffle packed processing for ETIC. For the majority of ETIC products, this constituted the critical and final production process. As of February 1, 2016, CHIPS-Inc. is now drop shipping product to all of ETIC’s customers. Ordering and customer support continue to be handled at ETIC, but shipping will be originated at CHIPS, located just outside of Boston, MA.

CHIPS-Inc. sources outside processes at ETIC’s direction, and does not source from non-ETIC suppliers.

 

 


Custom ASIC designs

Lead Times

For fully custom ASIC designs, lead time from the spec buy-off until first silicon is running typically six months.

Lead times on standard IC products, such as ET2010 and ET2110 are being reduced from that experienced in the middle of 2014. New stocking levels have been set and this should reduce lead times to within 5 weeks in most cases.
