OAKLAND, Calif.—By adhering to strict blueprints for quality control and information sharing, Digicom Electronics has positioned itself to support “the ongoing trend to onshore electronics manufacturing back to America,” the company said in a release.
For Digicom, safeguarding its customers’ intellectual property goes hand-in-hand with its adherence to a rigorous quality assurance system. The Oakland-based producer of electronic assemblies protects its customers’ intellectual property by complying with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), customer nondisclosure agreements (NDAs), and the AS9100:2016 Revision D, ISO 9001:2015, and ISO 13485:2016 quality management system standards.
Companies that manufacture electronics “can potentially hold the keys to the product’s backdoors,” Digicom said in the release. But when part traceability is more difficult, as it can be when electronics are manufactured overseas, it makes it easier for bad actors to exploit these backdoors with malicious firmware. According to Digicom, assembling its customers’ products in the United States ensures that precision and confidentiality “are woven into the DNA of [its] electronics, all the way down beneath the circuit boards.”
“There’s no worry about malicious firmware backdoors or subpar craftsmanship,” the company said in the release. “We deliver quality electronic assemblies exactly as imagined, while exceeding every manufacturing expectation along the way.”
Digicom’s compliance with ITAR requirements “ensures that the entire manufacturing process is meticulously documented, and that all customers’ information is handled with the utmost care and confidentiality,” according to the release.
“As part of compliance with ITAR, we sign and uphold binding NDA agreements with our customers, vendors, contractors, and all other partners. These NDA agreements legally guarantee that sensitive product designs and specifications will be treated as top-secret information,” the company said.
Digicom (www.digicom.org) said that it provides electronics manufacturing services (EMS) that fit the needs of larger enterprises and smaller start-up companies.
