IC'Alps receives EN 9100 certification
We are proud to announce that we have recently been accredited by the certification body AFNOR with the internationally recognized quality standard - EN 9100 for our Quality Management System.
IC’Alps receives EN 9100:2018 certification for aerospace, aviation and defence markets Meylan, FRANCE – January 23, 2020 - IC’Alps, French expert in design and supply of custom integrated circuits, announces EN 9100:2018 certification and strengthens its commitment to aerospace, aviation and defence markets.
EN 9100 is the internationally recognized Quality Management System (QMS) specifically developed for the aerospace, aviation and defence industries (equivalent to AS 9100 in America and JISQ 9100 in Asia). EN9100 is based on the ISO 9001 quality management standard and provides additional requirements specific to aerospace business operations. The certification is strongly supported and adhered to by all major aeronautics manufacturers.
The independent and accredited certification body AFNOR has certified the QMS used by IC’Alps to specify, design, develop and supply custom integrated circuits in December 2019. This major achievement for IC’Alps is the result of an 18-months team investment. According to Agnès Venet, CFO & Quality Manager at IC’Alps, “The EN9100:2018 certification reflects the commitment made by the team to meet the requirements and expectations of customers presenting the most challenging applications. IC’Alps has demonstrated its ability to establish, and continually improve internal operational processes to ensure supply of the highest quality integrated circuits, as well as the long-term reliability of its supply chain, and the traceability of every design project”.
“With this certification we hope to reinforce the French semiconductor ecosystem, broadening the possibilities of integrating a sovereign technology of custom chipsfor both civilian and military applications.” commentsJeanLuc Triouleyre, CEO of IC’Alps.
This certification strengthens IC’Alps’ competitive position, as the company is the first European independent ASIC design house with a QMS certified according to EN 9100, ISO 13485 (medical) and ISO9001 standards.
