End-to-End Design Services
At Sanmina, end-to-end design partnerships with our customers are at the core of our value proposition. We’ve invested heavily in creating the models and mastering the tools to ensure timely response when tackling RF Microwave challenges. Which means, when we do product design, we warranty it to meet our customer’s specifications. Our customers own the IP and we assume responsibility for production yields and supply chain issues. And our customers take on a partner who stands behind their product and its success.
Contract Design Services
We are Solution Accelerators. It’s our way of complementing our customer’s existing design team — with the tools, talent and technical expertise they need to go to market quickly. What’s more, our customers can focus on their core competencies while partnering with a world-class RF Microwave design partner.
We also offer a wide range of DFx services, such as Design for Manufacturability and Design for Testability, to help drive cost out of the products we build. It’s a significant value-add service that’s at the core of a successful business model our customers’ have come to trust.
Custom Manufacturing Services
We’re experts at customizing the correct supply chain, process steps and tooling to build optical products with high quality and high performance. All while respecting and protecting a customer’s IP.
When customers entrust Sanmina to work with their Intellectual Property (IP), they take on a partner that understands, respects and protects their IP interests. Sanmina has the systems and safeguards to protect against IP leakage, pro-actively firewalling customers’ IP while locating the efficiencies afforded by our Tier-1 reach.
Custom End-to-End Product Design
A customer’s specifications are all it takes. Once engaged, Sanmina is thoroughly committed to delivering the lowest-cost solution to the customer’s IP. We move beyond industry standard workmanship warranties. We work diligently to ensure our designs will meet every one of our customer’s specifications. Or it’s up to us to fix it. It’s that simple.
We assume responsibility for production yields, supply-chain excess, obsolescence issues and product testing. A thorough understanding of our custom manufacturing processes, coupled with detailed knowledge of component specifications and deep supply-chain relationships, allows us to take on these responsibilities. Naturally, our “End-to-End” test strategy enables us to drive cost out from the product across the whole of its life cycle. In the end, when we focus on providing the full custom design, it frees our customers to focus on their core competencies without worrying about the production issues.
Sanmina has the cross-industry experience to break down the qualification phase into these core tests. Plus, we collaborate with internal and customer experts to craft and execute the most cost-effective qualification programs possible.
For over twenty years, Sanmina has proven that we can qualify the highest-performance optical and RF/Microwave products. We know which tests to do — and most importantly, we know how to do them.
Some examples of optical analysis include:
First, our design and engineering teams bring value to the product development process, working at virtually every stage of the design cycle: from concept through detailed design and prototyping to volume production and end-of-life support. These contract services provide great flexibility to our customers on how and where we apply our engineering support.
We also create real value with our experience in total product renewal services, addressing hardware and embedded software improvements, component obsolescence, feature and performance enhancements, and adherence to international standards.Lastly, we provide a detailed cost reduction strategy for each product, enhancing the value of key components and eliminating unnecessary elements wherever possible to improve the overall product value and decrease the cost.
Whether in the New Product Introduction (NPI), volume manufacturing or end-of-life phase, a properly defined test strategy allows our customers to maximize their return on investment and minimize their test-related costs. When Sanmina creates a custom manufacturing processes for a specific optical, RF, Microwave or micro-electronic product, we ensure the test strategy and techniques are an integral — and cost-effective — part of the overall solution.
Test is a tool. Work with a partner that knows how to use its full potential.
We operate in a high-mix environment with a focus towards on-time delivery for every customer. How do we do this consistently? It’s our people, our processes and attention to detail that enable us to solve the high-mix execution puzzle.
Our global network of optical factories operate on a single, unified IT operating system. Leveraging this strategic platform, our High-Mix Execution Systems allow us to adapt quickly to changing build requirements — globally. It’s this capability and approach to our business that enables us to keep every customer’s project moving at the speed of success — however the customer defines it.
