MANASSAS, Virginia — The U.S. Department of Defense has named BAE Systems an accredited DoD Category 1A Trusted Integrated Circuit Supplier. The accreditation, awarded by the department’s Defense Microelectronics Activity, covers design, foundry, test, packaging, and assembly services at the company’s Manassas, Virginia, facility.
The Manassas facility operation was accredited as a trusted supplier for semiconductor foundry services.
“As the threat of counterfeit products continues to grow, the ability to ensure that we deliver exactly what is specified — from design through finished electronic package — becomes increasingly critical to our customers,” said Steve Danziger, manager of technology diversification at BAE Systems in Manassas.
This accreditation expresses the Defense Department’s confidence in BAE Systems’ ability to deliver trusted foundry microelectronics equipment and services to U.S. government end users.
