ES Components is the First Semiconductor Die Distributor to Receive AS6081 Certification
ES Components is now officially certified to the AS6081 standard in support of its customers’ AS5553 requirements. On November 2, 2015 NQA (An ANAB Accredited Company), presented ES Components with a Certificate of Registration.
Rationale of the AS6081 Standard:
This standard was created in response to a significant and increasing volume of fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain, posing significant performance, reliability, and safety risks. This standard was created to provide uniform requirements, practices and methods to mitigate the risks of purchasing and supplying fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts.
“We are proud to be the first die distributor to adopt this new standard. When a customer comes to us they can
rest assured that ES Components has processes and procedures in place to mitigate their risk of receiving
fraudulent/counterfeit devices. This is one more reason for customers to buy from us.” said Mehrdad Namin,
Vice President and General Manager, of ES Components.

Conflict Minerals (Metals) Policy
The United States has enacted legislation, the Dodd-Frank Act (Section 1502), that will require public companies to disclose whether their products contain certain conflict metals (Tin, Gold, Tantalum, and Tungsten). This law, beginning in 2014, affects many of our publicly traded, Franchised suppliers.
ES Components will continue to support our customer's and supplier's efforts in complying with their reporting requirements.
