Ciao Wireless Maintains the Highest Level of Quality and Process Control
Ciao Wireless’ commitment to furnish products considered to be “best-in-class” begins with a comprehensive Quality System that is in AS9100 and ISO9001 registered. Ciao Wireless’ Quality Assurance organization is chartered to maintain the highest level of document and process control and quality standards.
Since being founded, Ciao Wireless has supplied the Defense, Military and Commercial community with state-of-the-art microwave amplifiers, sub-systems, and radial power combiners/dividers for various applications. From the beginning, the company has been committed to superior quality in the products it delivers. This commitment has been supported not only philosophically but also with the capital commitments necessary to ensure that the best available tools, facilities, and techniques are being employed in the manufacture and test of all products.
Although Ciao Wireless’ Quality Assurance Program is designed to be flexible to meet customer program requirements, a defined baseline of inspection and screening criterion that ensures that all products will meet the most stringent military, aerospace and commercial requirements, has been established.
All of Ciao Wireless’ products are manufactured using processes that are tightly controlled to the requirements of MIL-PRF-38534 and IPC-610 and NASA soldering and assembly techniques, as required. Units are assembled and tested in a controlled clean room environment. The environmental conditions are actively monitored for temperature and humidity to ensure product quality. Inspection criteria as defined by MIL-M-38510, MIL-PRF-38534 and MIL-STD-883 are strictly adhered to.
Test and measurement equipment maintenance and calibration is performed in accordance with MIL-STD-45662A and fully traceable to all NIST/ANSI standards.
Ciao performs 100% Unconditional Stability Testing on all amplifiers manufactured and shipped.
