When developing circuit boards for the aerospace industry, high reliability is not only desirable but mandated. In contrast to most commercial development, failures on most space platforms are not repairable. And lost aerospace vehicles, such as satellites and rockets, can cost millions of dollars, not to mention the potential for loss of life on spaceships. Therefore, regulatory standards such as AS9100D ensure that your PCBA development process meets rigid quality standards that include monitoring, record-keeping and all facets of quality control.
Tempo’s San Francisco-based automated factory is ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D certified, as well as IPC-A-610/J-STD-001 Class 3 certified. We are one of only three companies in the world to receive IPC site certification for the J-STD-001 Space/Military Addendum assembly standard. Our facility is also ITAR-registered. Tempo is not only certified to provide the highest quality but also deliver PCBAs to perform reliably for the harshest conditions in space and on other planets.
Tempo’s digital thread manufacturing process leads the PCBA industry in building custom and complex boards fast and precisely. Working with us is a symbiotic partnership focused on delivering prototype and low-volume PCBAs that meet the high quality standards for your aerospace system development and applications. For more information on our advanced turnkey aerospace PCB services, contact us.
At Tempo, we employ a white box manufacturing process to maximize transparency between the developer and the factory. This concept ensures that design intent and equipment capabilities synchronize, resulting in an optimized process with high yield rates and the fastest turnaround in the industry.
To consistently achieve these results, we employ a custom digital thread manufacturing (DTM) process that uses communications technology, devices and protocols to enable real-time monitoring and control throughout all stages of board build. Coupled with our stringent quality assurance (QA), the following advantages for aerospace PCBA development are realized.
Tempo Automation’s customers in the aerospace industry include some of the world’s largest makers of aircraft, satellites and space launch systems, dynamic NewSpace innovators, and government agencies. From prototyping to production of flight-ready boards, our factory manufactures printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) that meet the toughest requirements for terrestrial, orbital, and interplanetary applications. Partnering with us brings the following to your aerospace PCBA development process.
