JESD 69 Updated for Silicon Device Qualification Information

JESD 69, Information Requirements for the Qualification of Silicon Devices, has just been updated.  The new Revision C is available from Document Center Inc. now in both paper format and for pdf download.  It provides both suppliers and customers with the minimum requirements for information provided for the device qualification package (for silicon devices).

What is this about?  It’s information on a specific set of data elements that describe a particular device.  This includes the test results of a supplier’s qualification efforts.  Of course, the tests a supplier uses may vary from device to device.  The standard does not include specific information on what tests must be done for any particular device.

For those of you already using this standard, you’ll want to know what the changes are since you may need to change your protocols.  The JEDEC committee in charge of the JESD 69 has provided us with a synopsis of the updates.  You’ll find them in Annex A.  Now the previous Revision B (from October 2007) is obsolete with the release of this technical update.  So an understanding of the new requirements is essential.

First of all, you’ll notice that the word “component” has been replaced with the term “device.”  There are references to more standards in this new update.  Clause 3 has additional clarification of items to be included in the report.  Clauses 3D and 3F have also been revised.

Now to get your copy of this new JESD 69 Revision C.  Head to the Document Center Inc. webstore at  There you will find all standards from JEDEC, since we are an authorized distributor of these publications.  Historical editions are also available.  Here is a direct link to the order page for the JESD 69 for your convenience.
