MILPITAS, Calif. -- May 22, 2018 -- Open-Silicon, a system-optimized ASIC solution provider, today announced that it has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification. The internationally-recognized certification includes Open-Silicon’s design, manufacture and sales of ASICs utilizing subcontracted wafer fabrication, assembly and test services. This certification is an enhancement from Open-Silicon’s prior ISO 9001:2008 certification and underscores the company’s ongoing commitment to quality, performance and customer satisfaction.
The ISO 9001:2015 certification was earned following an external audit performed by SGS, an ANAB-accredited inspection, verification, testing and certification body.

In order to meet the ISO 9001:2015 standard, a company must demonstrate adherence to a Quality Management System (QMS) that outlines good business practices and ensures consistency in providing products and services that meet customer and applicable industry requirements.
“Enhancing our certification from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 demonstrates our commitment to maintaining our position as a world-class ASIC provider. The more advanced procedures associated with this certification will allow us to operate more efficiently, reach new markets, and better identify and address risks,” said Taher Madraswala, President and CEO of Open-Silicon.
“Open-Silicon takes great pride in meeting and exceeding customer requirements and expectations for high quality and on-time delivery of silicon,” said Asim Salim, VP of Manufacturing Operations for Open-Silicon. “This requires exhaustive planning, implementation and control of both our internal and external quality processes, which continually monitor, measure, analyze and improve our ASIC design methodology and high-volume silicon manufacturing flows.”
The International Organization for Standards (ISO) is the largest standards organization in the world, with a network of standards institutes from 162 countries. The ISO 9001 is a set of procedures covering all key processes within a business and ensures that these processes are efficient, effective and are monitored consistently, allowing the company to continuously improve on its processes.
