Established in 1998 and acquired by Fusion Worldwide in February 2022 ( 
), Prosemi has built a reputation among the world's largest CMs and OEMs for 
testing electronic components and providing baking, tape and reel, and IC 
programming services. The new, expanded facility improves performance standards 
through investments in new technologies and capabilities to support customers 
around the world, ensuring both quality and speed for electronic component 
testing. Newly available testing services at the facility include JTAG 
boundary-scan (IEEE Std 1149.1) for evaluating the special embedded logic of 
integrated circuits, in addition to Prosemi's already expansive suite of 
service offerings. Future expansion at the facility will include temperature 
range testing, high and medium power management IC testing and additional 
analytical analysis through CSAM. The facility has also increased and now 
maintains a large inventory of custom and standard carrier pockets and tapes to 
support tape and reeling for a broad range of components.

"Our dedication of resources to better facilities and technologies, combined 
with the knowledge and expertise based on our extensive database of test 
results and analyses, demonstrates our devotion to offer best solutions to 
support our customers," said SC Lee, Supply Chain Quality Director for APAC, 
Fusion Worldwide.  

Key capabilities and features of the Prosemi facility:

       testing to just 2-7 days, drastically reducing customers' wait times.

       such as detailed external visual inspection, solvent test for remarking 
       and resurfacing, radiological inspection, lead finish evaluation, 
       decapsulation internal analysis, Scanning Electronic Microscopy up to 
       100,000x with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (EDX), Fourier Transform 
       Infrared Spectroscopy, solderability, and comprehensive electrical 
       testing. Prosemi also offers services such as Tape and Reel, Baking, IC 
       Programming, Laser Marking and Sorting.

    -- New, 26,500-square-foot facility: The new facility allows for greater 
       capacity and expanded capabilities to support advanced testing 
       technologies that accelerate customer innovation around the world. 
       Fusion / Prosemi maintains one of the largest die databases in the 
       industry as well as one of the largest databases of inspection and 
       analysis of electronic components.

    -- Powered by Fusion Worldwide: With over 20 years of experience testing 
       electronic components, Prosemi's capabilities, combined with Fusion 
       Worldwide's commitment to quality and standards, create an invaluable 
       and comprehensive testing database. Fusion Worldwide customers also 
       benefit from using a single, end-to-end solutions provider to 
       support them through the entire component sourcing, testing,
