AEM, Inc., announces the HRB-US series of high-reliability ferrite beads that meet the stringent requirements of the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) specification 03024. AEM is the only ferrite chip manufacturer whose parts are approved by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to the DSCC 03024 specification. The innovative HRB-US process up-screens commercially available parts utilizing AEM’s proprietary techniques to selectively certify additional ferrite beads to the DSCC standard. The HRB-US Series provides an effective means to meet the growing demand of high-reliability applications.
“AEM’s in-house manufactured HRB / 03024 series of ferrite chips are the gold standard for high-reliability,” said AEM’s Marketing Director, Scott Sentz. “Our new HRB-US Series expands our inventory of Hi-Rel components that approach DSCC 03024 reliability through an intricate up-screening of the highest-quality commercial devices. They are also backed by our traceable in-house materials and processes.”
AEM’s HRB-US series components begin as full reel ferrite bead lots acquired through OEM approved distribution channels and are traceable to selected manufactures of commercial devices. The devices pass through pre- and post-screening processes while undergoing AEM’s proprietary Tin-Lead conversion. The devices are then subjected to DSCC 03024 Group A, B and C testing. Finally, the parts are assigned a new HRB-US part number and are tape and reel packaged with an AEM lot number and date code.
